Company Description

About Our Hotel

The iconic Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club is a luxury 5-star resort located in the Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy in Nanyuki, Kenya.

The hotel is rooted in history and has evolved from the vision of its founding members in the early 1930s as a hunting ground to a beautiful story today as a hotel within a conservancy. The organization plays a crucial role in its host community through conservation and sustainability initiatives.

As part of the conservation work, the property has a goal to rehabilitate and release the antelope species called the “Mountain Bongo” which was heading towards extinction and hence continues to make historic strides for future generations.

Nestled in the lush foothills of Mount Kenya, it is strategically located on the Equator offering 100 luxury rooms and villas. The hotel features a prestigious main structure that reflects the 1950s colonial architectural design with a luxury country club feel, complemented by independent quaint cottages, including William Holden’s original cottage which offers breathtaking views of the mountain.

The hotel guests can indulge in an array of exciting outdoor activities including animal orphanage visits, destination dining, bongo tracking, horse riding in the forest/conservancy, phenomenal breakfasts at the slopes of Mount Kenya, and open fire dinner concepts at the foothills of the Mountain. Moreover, the F&B offerings include an all-day dining restaurant, a fine dining grill restaurant, a bar, and banquets/wedding destinations.
