The Kitengela glass suspension bridge, arguably one of Kenya’s scariest bridges is owned by a Kenyan named Anselm Croze.
It is a suspended swaying bridge located within the property of the Kitengela Hot Glass Studio, hanging approximately 30 metres above a deep river valley and it swings when strong winds blow.
The bridge was built in early 2000 by Nani Croze, a German national who fell in love with the environment after settling in the area in the 1970s.
It is made of steel lift cables, with a wire and mild steel framework and is decorated with recycled glass elements.
Anselm Croze took over the management of the bridge when Nani fell ill in early 2023 - adding it to the offerings already available at his studio.
He schooled at a public school in the United Kingdom known as the Shrewsbury School between 1979 to 1984.
Anselm then joined the United States International University (USIU) in 1996 to pursue a Bachelor of Business Administration.
He also owns the Kitengela Hot Glass Studio located at the property which is known for making beautiful and unique artwork using glass.
The studio recycles broken glass to manufacture items such as glass jugs, vases, drinking glasses, glass decorations, light fixtures and glass tables.
Those who visit the property part with an entrance fee of Ksh300 for both adults and children, payable at the shop.
While at the property, guests can also enjoy a demonstration of the captivating art of glass blowing at the Kitengela Glass factory which also charges Ksh300 separately.
The property further has a swimming pool that can be accessed by paying Ksh500 for adults or Ksh300 for children.
