The Aberdare Country Club, only a three-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 selected by an English couple who had decided to settle in the land of their choosing - Kenya. It all happened many years ago; their children grew up there, but then moved on to different places. After almost half a century, their home, "The Steep", was sold and re-named "The Aberdare Country Club". Even though the property was developed beyond the imaginings of the original owners, they would be pleased with how carefully it has been nurtured and the grandeur it has maintained. This is highlighted in Monty Brown's book, "Haven Under the Hill" which says: "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 Club's 1,300 acre wildlife sanctuary is teeming with eland, impalas, zebras, giraffes and the more reclusive leopards. It is a haven of unhurried charm set in a garden bursting with a profusion of colour, and with peacocks living within the lush green lawns. Walking through this unspoiled terrain is paradise. Play a round of golf, watched by a family of warthog, or fish for trout, play tennis or just relax by the pool within the beautiful gardens. From here you can see the sunset with the stunning Aberdare Mountains as a backdrop.

A wonderful experience of being at Aberdare Country Club. The beautiful abundance of Nature's bounty that surrounds this club is very meditative and therapeutic. I loved the peacocks, impalas and the Jacarandas along with the the picturesque greens with splashes of purples, reds and pinks...More
Stunning setting. However it's overpriced and a bit dated. Furniture is from the early 80's and we paid out off our ears for a standard dinner. Very dissapointed to think how little value for money we got.
The starting point for our Somak's 7 day Cheetah safari. A great start too. Not 5 star in looks but certainly is in terms of staff friendliness and treating you as someone special.Set in the most pleasing of grounds its a picturesque location with excellent...More
We stopped for lunch here on our drive between parks. It is a sea of lush and green that seems quite off the beaten track. After hours bumping along on dirt roads the fabulous lunch in the shade of flowering trees and in sight of...More
