Add that to the amazing slopes breakfast and bush dining experience and you will see why Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club is the country’s most famous retreat.

Best of the Best

Movie idol William Holden founded the club so friends like Ernest Hemingway and Winston Churchill could escape their worldly cares. Escape yours on 100 landscaped acres with croquet lawns, stunning rose gardens and tranquil pools. Visit the animal orphanage next door, and explore the surrounding reserve on mountain bike or horseback. Expect to be lavished with attention, treated to elegant repasts and cosseted in your royally decorated guestroom with fireplace.
