This was the most beautiful start to our safari, we arrived late in drizzling mist, The walk to our room was very arduous up many wet stairs in the dark, our room was at the very top, suitcases carried by the porters, we were very much out of breath, & were offered the use of a golf buggy which we...

This was an amazing place set in the middle of a park with giraffes, all sorts of deer, bush pigs, (which we thought were warthogs until we saw real ones later!) and exotic birds we had not seen before. The food was excellent and the staff all very friendly and helpful. The rooms were all set in lodges through the... More

Interesting place with lovely grounds. The food was good and the rooms very clean and nicely laid out with views over the reserve. We went on a nature walk into the reserve with a guide which was very interesting walking past zebras and baboons! It's at altitude so cold in the evenings. There is no heating in the rooms but...

Our group stayed at the Aberdare Country Club for one night while travelling to the Maasai Marathon races. Our rooms were up the hill at the top of many steep steps which was useful for marathon training. The cabin style rooms, which were set in peaceful gardens, were large and comfortable. Meals were typical African buffet style and were definitely... More

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
