Founded by actor William Holden and set in over 100 acres of landscaped gardens in the shadow of majestic Mount Kenya, Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club is something of a legend. Its illustrious members have included Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, Bob Hope, the Aga Kahn, Lyndon Johnson and Lord Louis Mountbatten. Virtually everything that one could ever wish for can be found at this exclusive retreat. All luxuriously appointed guest rooms have fireplaces as well as an array of amenities appreciated by today’s modern explorers. The resort offers an array of genteel leisure pursuits to fill your day, including (but certainly not limited to) trout fishing, golf, tennis and horseback riding (all available at an additional charge). No matter which dining venue you choose, dinners are an elegant affair at Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club. To get a feel for the Africa experienced by travelers years ago, be sure to visit the Trophy Lounge.
