About Our Hotel

The iconic Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club is a luxury 5-star resort located in the Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy in Nanyuki, Kenya. The hotel is rooted in history and has evolved from the vision of its founding members in the early 1930s as a hunting ground to a beautiful story today as a hotel within a conservancy. The organization plays a crucial role in its host community through conservation and sustainability initiatives. As part of the conservation work, the property has a goal to rehabilitate and release the antelope species called the “Mountain Bongo’s” who were heading towards extinction and hence continues to make historic strides for future generations.
