Harambee Stars have opened camp in Naivasha ahead of their World cup qualifier match against Nigeria.
The team left Nairobi for the tourist town on Wednesday afternoon.
“We have opted to go to Naivasha to avoid the hustle and bustle that comes with the busy city. The other reason is the pitch. It is better here and we want to train here before we face Super Eagles,” said Stars Coach Adel Amrouche.
“As we speak the team has safely arrived and we look forward to improve the side in the coming days.”
The team had been training at City Stadium for weeks with only local-based players before a few of the foreign-based including Jamal Mohammed and Patrick Osiako joined the squad.
The last time Kenya trained out of Nairobi was back in 2010 when they faced Uganda in an Afcon qualifier that ended in a barren draw.

The team will miss out on key players in the Eagles clash: Arnold origi and Dennis Oliech out on suspension, Ayub Timbe who declined the call up, David Gateri and MacDonald Mariga who are injured.
