I had a shockingly nice experience with place. Let me tell you this place is nurtured by purest love and affection of ZAC and his dedicated staffs. It is surrounded by amazing tea plantation and river for tilapia fishing. The air is so much pure and ambiance is heavenly, untouched by human invasion. Everything in this cottage has been carefully... More

This is a superb resort located in the Tea zone in Kangema. It is less than two hours from Nairobi. The food is freshly prepared and the personnel are very attentive to detail. The environment is serene ,only the chirping of birds is to be heard. Its definitely a nice place to unwind over the weekend.

We spent the whole weekend there and ooh my...the place was beyond our expectations and my lady could not help shedding tears of joy. The staff was amazing planned everything to perfection and they even surprised me too. The hiking down river Mathioya... More

We had heard about Aberdare Cottages and Camping site and decided to check it out. This turned out to be one of the best decisions we made. Aberdare cottages is Zac and Zac is Aberdare Cottages. From the moment we drove to the compound on a wet afternoon, we were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. The atmosphere,... More

A few hours outside Nairobi, this was salad for the soul. Clean, cool mountain air, beautiful views across a valley and a magnificent river teeming with fish (apparently). It was the perfect antidote to Nairobi's traffic-choked charms. Food for the table, unfortunately, proved a bit harder to find. I'd hoped to catch supper in the river, but not so much... More

Along with another family, I took my children camping for two nights at the Aberdare Cottages & Campsite and had a wonderful experience. The service was excellent and the staff extremely helpful - I had barely taken taken my tent out of the car before two eager-to-help employees insisted on putting it up for me in a matter of minutes....

We stayed with our 4 year old son for a weekend away from Nairobi, and it was so lovely. Very peaceful, fresh air, great views. Good home cooked food, and cosy well furnished tents. Frank and the team were really helpful and friendly, and the river was lovely, just a shame we didn't have time for a swim in it!... More

Nice, comfortable and clean chalets and tents. Great location for hikes in the surrounding hills. A little bit far from Aberdare National Park, but it is possible to go to the Aberdares and come back to the cottages within the day. Zack and his team are very friendly, welcoming and professional. The food has nothing exceptional but is good. The... More
