At a height of 7,200 ft on the slopes of Mt. Kenya ringed by a dense forest which comes alive at dusk with the myriad sounds of Animals is the Mountain Lodge.
It is the closest "Tree Lodge" to Nairobi - only two and half-hours by car. It can be reached by a good road passing through coffee, sisal and pineapple plantation. Each of the Lodge's rooms has private showers and toilets.
Once in the snug surroundings of the lodge with its spacious public verandahs, or from one of the bedroom balconies, the visitor looks beyond the branches of the tall trees to witness the endless parade of game animals.
A specially constructed viewing bunker, connected to the lodge by a short tunnel, affords a spectacular close up view of the game at the waterhole. Constantly towering over the scene, at their clearest in the early morning or late afternoon are the rocky peaks of Mount Kenya with half a dozen glaciers.
