Aberdares Country Club
The Aberdare Country Club, only a two and a half hour drive northeast from Nairobi, is nestled on a slope of Mweiga Hill in the Aberdare Highlands, part of the Great Rift Valley. This captivating site was the homestead of an English couple that decided to settle in Kenya. Almost a half century later, their home, "The Steep", was renamed the Aberdare Country Club and opened for guests. Considered a heritage property in Kenya, The Aberdare Country Club has retained the charm of a private home with the simple comforts of a country inn.
This is highlighted in Monty Brown's book, Haven Under the Hill, so aptly:
"Today, despite the fast-changing tempo of the outside world, the old home still retains that comfortable, solid feeling based on traditions from a time when life proceeded at a far more leisurely and gentle pace."
- The Lord Aberdare Restaurant was the original dining room for the Lyon family. Now expanded to accommodate over 100 guests, it still exudes that homey ambiance. Guests have several choices including alfresco dining on the lawns. The food is very fresh with organic vegetables and spices right from the club gardens and fruits brought in daily fresh from the village.
- Reminiscent of an old English pub, The Lord Aberdare Bar is a comfortable place to relax after a long journey or a round of golf. With a TV room and several fireplaces, this is the perfect place to enjoy your favorite cocktail.
