Weekend retreat on the Equator

May 8, 2017

We spent the last weekend at one of the most beautiful properties in Kenya, The Mount Kenya Safari Club, Nanyuki. This property belongs to Fairmont Hotels and lies on about 150 acres on the foothills on the magnificent Mount Kenya.

The fact that the hotel passes through the Equator line makes it even more special. Originally the retreat of movie star and Club founder, William Holden, this property has beautifully landscaped gardens and a small orphanage for wild animals. Its a perfect place to get away for the weekend. About 3 hours drive from Nairobi with beautiful views of the Kenyan Countryside on the way.
