Some of Kenya's finest attractions lie at the Mount Kenya Safari Club's doorstep. The 19,000 acre Sweetwaters Game Reserve is teeming with a wide variety of wildlife and there is an enormous range of other sightseeing activities for visitors. These include bird walks, half or full day game viewing safaris and half or full day trips to challenge Mount Kenya's rugged slopes.

High on the slopes of Africa's second highest mountain, The Mount Kenya Safari Club straddles the Equator in a glory of luxurious cottages and elegant buildings set amid manicured lawns and decorative ponds.
Ever since the Club was founded in 1959 by the late film star William Holden, eccentric American Ray Ryan, and Swiss financier Carl Hirschmann, it has been a Mecca for the international jet set - its list of members reads like a Who's Who of royalty, aristocracy, and the rich and famous.
