ABOUT TREETOPS LODGE NYERI, KENYA
Located in the expansive Aberdare National Park, the world-famous Treetops Lodge Nyeri, Kenya was first built in 1932 and rose to fame after the then Princess Elizabeth ascended the British throne, after King George VI died on 5th Feb 1952.
Treetops Lodge lies in the path of an ancient elephant migratory route between the Aberdare Ranges and Mt Kenya National Park and is strategically positioned in front of a natural watering hole making it a haven for lovers of elephants and buffaloes. Every evening, buffaloes and elephants make for a spectacular view while drinking at the waterhole. Every room at Treetops is fitted with a buzzer for the animal lovers who would want to be alerted when there is game at the watering hole.
The entire Lodge is fitted with large windows and visitors can view game from anywhere within the building. The view deck is strategically located in a semi-open area, and is the best place to view animals as visitors down their drinks. Built on stilts, access is through a gradual ramp to the top floor and has an indigenous tree growing right through the building. Upon arrival, the resident hunter escorts visitors to see the magnificent flora and fauna present around the Lodge.
With an altitude of 6450 ft above sea level, visitors are advised to carry warm clothing as the weather in Aberdare National Park can be chilly especially at night.
Through its CSR initiative, Return the Bush, the lodge has rehabilitated 16.5 ha of the area around the Salient by planting more than 37000 trees. Guests can participate in this initiative by planting a tree during their stay.
The epitome of luxurious style, the unique vintage of Treetops is enriched by mahogany and exquisite furnishings. Guests can enjoy this ambiance in the residents only Lounge.
