Mount Kenya Lodges
A three-hour drive north of Nairobi brings you to the Kenya highlands. Home to Africa's second largest mountain, Mount Kenya as well as three of the oldest national parks: Meru, Aberdare and Mount Kenya. Lodges near Mount Kenya are well known for attracting sports-minded visitors with many hiking and walking trails, campsites, canoe and river rafting spots as well as world-class trout fishing (without forgetting the unbelievable wildlife and birdlife on offer in the region).
There exist some of the oldest of Kenya’s most famous safari lodges as well as interesting colonial architecture. Mount Kenya Safari Club and Treetops Lodge in the Aberdares where Queen Elizabeth spent her honeymoon are not to miss for the more historically minded visitor. The focus on historical architecture does not mean that there is a paucity of traditional safari activities. Game viewing is excellent in all the reserves with large mixtures of plains and mountain game. Mount Kenya straddles the equator and can become quite chilly in the evenings so dress appropriately. Mount Kenya is also regarded as a holy mountain by all the local tribe's people. They believe that their traditional God Ngai and his wife Mumbi live on the peak of the mountain and use it for their traditional rituals.
Our safari specialist consultants will be able to guide you as to the best choice of Mount Kenya Lodges as part of your bespoke Kenya itinerary.
