We've stayed at a lot of places in Kenya and nowhere else do you get such a perfect 'away-from-it-all' feeling. The scenery is incredible. The air is so fresh. All you hear is the wind and the birds, and the occasional animal call at night. Fishing at Lake Rutundu is great and the strenuous 2-hour climb up to Lake Alice... More

If you are looking for a unique, unforgettable experience in Kenya, Rutundu Log Cabins are a great bet. They are set on the northern slopes of Mount Kenya, and offer stunning views of Mount Kenya, access to pristine alpine lakes, and great fishing for trout. The cabins are cozy and rustic, the service there is impeccable. Check out pictures and... More

I stayed at Rutundu back in July and had a wonderful time. Everywhere else I have been in Kenya, you are never truly alone in peace and quiet. However, at Rutundu, you are definitely away from it all. During the 3 nights we were there, we didn't see a single person outside of our group and the Rutundu staff. There... More

Rutundu cabins are always a delight- They are about two hours by road from the main Nanyuki road, you will need a 4x4 car to get to them, especially if it has rained. The drive is beautiful taking you up through cedar forests and heather moorlands. When you arrive you are welcomed by one of the staff and your bags... More

What an amazing place , we were very lucky to share on a recent trip to Kenya. It takes approx 1hr 30m just to get there from the main road via a track only accessible to a 4x4. This means you will see nobody else on your stay, except the house staff Cosmas and James. These 2 guys really look... More

Rutundu is one of the most unique experiences one can have in a country which has a plethora of unique experiences on offer. It's no wonder Prince William chose this tiny outcropping of log cabins at 10,000+ on the northeastern slope of Mt. Kenya as the place to propose to the then Kate Middleton. Nestled just above and just below... More
