At the height of 7,200 ft., on the slopes of Mount Kenya, is Mountain Lodge. The lodge is ringed by a dense forest, which comes alive at dusk with the myriad sounds of animals. A specially constructed viewing bunker, connected to the lodge by a short tunnel, affords a spectacular close-up view of the game at the waterhole.

Mount Kenya Safari Club

Sited on the lush lower slopes of Mount Kenya at Nanyuki, the Mount Kenya Safari Club offers a unique blend of comfort, relaxation and adventure. S />et in manicured lawns, ornamental ponds, flowerbeds, this famous retreat exudes quiet elegance against a dramatic backdrop. Wildlife within the forests below the park boundary includes elephant, buffalo, lion, several species of antelope including the rare bongo and occasionally the melanistic forms of both the leopard and the serval. Much of this wildlife can be seen from the safety of the Mountain Lodge, which lies just inside the forest on the south side of the mountain. Mountain climbers should appreciate the need for acclimatisation over several days before attempting the high peaks. Naro Moru River Lodge specialises in assisting climbers with guides, porters and equipment.
