The Aberdare Country Club is a top class escape into the country. From the moment you arrive the service from Richard and his staff is second to none. Beautiful grounds with many animals wandering freely, such as Zebra, Bush Buck, Water Buck and Wart Hogs. Ask for the Giraffe Walk, the very knowledgable Jeremiah will show you more of the...

The place is serene and has a lot of harmless wildlife that saunter the massive lawns on the property. These range from warthog to peacock it has fantastic views witnessed from the restaurant deck and is an ideal location for a weekend getaway. the rooms are clean and give an aura of a log cabin type of place.

The gardens and views are fantastic here. When we sat down for lunch, the food was bland and really not worth the money charged. We ordered a number of dishes vegetarian, beef, chicken fish and pasta. None of it was impressive. A few of us ordered fresh fruit as dessert and it was not fresh. The fruit was dry and...

We booked the Country Club and Ark . Reached the Country Club to be received with a welcome drink. Immediate attention and we were informed of the facilities and the time of the shuttle to Ark. Children enjoyed the pool and tennis. Buffet lunch was good sure the INDIAN Vegetarians would probably have a issue. The Dal Makhani was just...

Aberdares Country Club is only a 2.5 hour drive from Nairobi on great roads. The property is itself is very picturesque and there is an air of colonial past as you enjoy the view over the Aberdare mountain range. The rooms are basic but clean. The resident price for bed and breakfast are expensive but not excessive, do however be...

We had lunch here on the penultimate day of our trip to Kenya before travelling to stay at the Ark Lodge. The surroundings are breath-taking and the food fantastic. I'd certainly recommend spending a couple of hours here to relax before moving onto the Ark

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Aberdare Country Club, only a three-hour drive northeast from Nairobi, is nestled on a slope of Mweiga Hill in the Aberdare Highlands, part of the Great Rift Valley. This captivating site was selected by an English couple who had decided to settle in the land of their choosing - Kenya. It all happened many years ago; their children grew up there, but then moved on to different places. After almost half a century, their home, "The Steep", was sold and re-named "The Aberdare Country Club". Even though the property was developed beyond the imaginings of the original owners, they would be pleased with how carefully it has been nurtured and the grandeur it has maintained. This is highlighted in Monty Brown's book, "Haven Under the Hill" which says: "Today, despite the fast-changing tempo of the outside world, the old home still retains that comfortable, solid feeling based on traditions from a time when life proceeded at a far more leisurely and gentle pace". The Club's 1,300 acre wildlife sanctuary is teeming with eland, impalas, zebras, giraffes and the more reclusive leopards. It is a haven of unhurried charm set in a garden bursting with a profusion of colour, and with peacocks living within the lush green lawns. Walking through this unspoiled terrain is paradise. Play a round of golf, watched by a family of warthog, or fish for trout, play tennis or just relax by the pool within the beautiful gardens. From here you can see the sunset with the stunning Aberdare Mountains as a backdrop. ... more   less
