Aberdare Country Club


... is located close to the Aberdares National Reserve in central Kenya.

Upsides ...

+ impressive old country estate
+ perhaps suitable for Nairobi residents on the weekend
+ used as a lunch stop in combination with The Ark

This really is a country club ... a grand 1920's manor set on a large estate with animals wandering around the grounds, tennis courts and a swimming pool. The cottages set within the grounds are traditional but relatively simple. International guests tend to only come in for lunch before taking the shuttle-bus to sister hotel The Ark, higher up in the forests of the Aberdare Hills.

Downsides ...

- relatively unattractive location
- corporate atmosphere
- of peripheral interest to most international visitors

This place must have been quite something in its heyday, but these days the area is quite heavily populated and relatively unattractive, whilst the hotel has the feeling of somewhere which has been passed from one corporate owner to another, each time become more detached from its more illustrious past.
