Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club Mt. Kenya, Kenya
Elegance on the equator
The sacred peak of a long-extinct volcano, Mount Kenya has drawn visitors for decades.
Nestled in the lush foothills of this spectacular mountain, straddling the equator and with a history as rich and evocative as the surrounding landscape, Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club offers a snapshot of Africa from a bygone era.
Under the watchful eye of the mountain, guests can stroll throughout the hotel’s tranquil grounds and relax in the refined elegance of the club-like interior. And, of course, our enviable location adjacent to Mount Kenya National Park, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as close to Aberdare National Park, ensures that an unforgettable African safari experience is at your doorstep.
