At 7,200 feet on the slopes of Mount Kenya, Mountain Lodge is ringed by a dense rain forest, which comes alive at dusk with a myriad of sounds of creatures of all sizes. This is the adventure offered at the 42 room Mountain Lodge where animal sightings are fascinating and frequent.
A two and a half hour drive from Nairobi, Mountain Lodge is now managed by Serena Hotels. The comfortable rooms have spacious verandas and private shower rooms.
The game viewing is excellent. You may watch the waterhole, right next to the lodge, throughout the evening and at night and local game includes elephant, buffalo, rhino and waterbuck. A specially constructed viewing bunker, connected to the lodge by a short tunnel, offers spectacular close-up views of wildlife at the waterhole. Towering over the landscape are the majestic rocky peaks of Mount Kenya, providing some dramatic photographic opportunities.
