The Baden Powell Historical Grounds (Kenya)

Kenya is credited for having some of the best tourists attraction sites in the world, notably in the wildlife and the hospitality sectors.
However, something with greater global recognition in Kenya is the origin of the Scouting and Girl guide Movement. It was in Kenya where the Late Lord Robert Baden Powell of Gidwell made his mark in the world of scouting. It was here that the founding father of Scouting lived much of his life after retirement from the army in his mid-50’s.
Much of his activities were centered in Nyeri County the then Central Province.
He died and was buried here in Nyeri at the St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Nyeri. The cemetery where his remains were buried is now an information center on the History of Scouting.
