We had one night here. I recommend going on the optional safari, for me this was the only lodge we stayed at where we had a different experience of a more jungle type safari which I really enjoyed! If you love elephants you will love it here, we saw a herd of 26 elephants and it was absolutely amazing to... More

Wow, what a place. This is truly a different kind of place to stay and a brilliant first place to spot wildlife as we started our tour. Sylvia, the host, was brilliant. Extremely friendly, very helpful and a genuine personality. Sylvia clearly wants to give her guests the best possible experience whilst at Treetops. The room was huge with a... More

Beautiful view of the Mount Kenya at the observation tower. A lot of animal enjoy the salt especially the buffaloes, baboons etc... They kept coming to lick the salt on the ground provided by the workers. Saw one male elephant & a hyena to enjoy the salt at night. It's just a relaxing place to stay overnight with the water...

we got a room facing the watering hole and it was fantastic. We got to see elephants, Buffaloes and a rhino, which is pretty rare, up close in their natural environment. Really great to see elephants interact up close from your room or the viewing area.

Treetops is a legendary hotel- the history keeps it going. The herds of elephants coming to the hotel every evening is spectacular !!!!but there is a lot that needs to improve in regards to room service, food and activities in the hotel- game drives, drinks (including dinner drinks) not included in the package. Well, I was in the best company... More

We were looking for somewhere not too far from Nairobi for a 2 night safari. Kichikani Sunset Safaris suggested Treetops and it was ideal. Interesting drive, lunch and rest at Outspan Hotel (including check-in which saved time once we were at Treetops) - Nyeri has interesting history including the last home and resting place of Baden-Powell. We had a game... More

The lodge was redone thus do expect some spruced up rooms and facilities, very quiet, serene and awesome for a peaceful RnR getaway on a good weekend. Lots of Elaphants, buffalo, warthogs, visit the watering hole all day and night thus you shall be well entertained.

We were looking forward to this very famous lodge. It has been expanded over time and curves around a man made water hole. The area is floodlit and very open in terms of cleared vegetation. We did see lots of wart hogs & a herd of elephants. We took a game drive (extra charge) out & it was excellent. Good... More

I visited Treetops 12 years ago so was excited to return..... But was sadly a little disappointed. The thing I loved about the place was it's unique nature. Climbing a rope ladder to get in, teeny tiny rooms where you could take only a back pack, shared bathrooms (to be fair most only stay one night so can go without... More

it looked to me like a garden shed on acid but once inside you appreciate the build.The open deck for watching the water hole was great, even better if you are not in the company of very chatty Spanish guests!! The whole point is the animals and the staff really try to make the whole thing work.I must say the... More
