Donholm, Savannah, Greenfield, Sunrise, and Jacaranda Estates
These residential estates, situated on Donholm Road off Outer Ring Road, are part of the greater Embakasi region in the Eastlands of Nairobi. They are bounded by Nairobi River to the south, Umoja to the north, Kayole to the east and Outer Ring Road to the west.
Donholm is the oldest of these Estates, having been built in the 1980s. It consists mostly of three bedroom bungalows on an eighth of an acre plot. Over the last fifteen years, this area has undergone tremendous changes with the mushrooming of multi-story apartments, some as high as seven-story and tightly spaced. While the bungalows are mostly owner occupied, the few that are available for rent go for Ksh 25,000 per month, unfurnished. The flats on the other hand are typically unfurnished two bedroom units and go for a monthly rent of about Ksh 15,000.
Savannah, Greenfield, Sunrise and Jacaranda Estates are all relatively newer developments from the 1990s. They consist mostly of two-story three bedroom maisonettes, most of which are owner-occupied. Those available for rent go for a monthly rent of about Kshs 20,000.
