Overview

Rutundu log cabins are set off the beaten traack on the northern slopes of Mount Kenya in an area of pure wilderness and breathtaking beauty. These cosy cabins are the perfect destination for an adventurous rough-luxe getaway. Enjoy hiking in the incredibly fresh mountain air or try your hand at trout fishing in the well stocked nearby Lake Rutundu, or at Lake Alice an hours hike away. You can bring your catch back to cook and enjoy the tranquility of this exclusive and remote destination. From your balcony you have an incredible view of the open tundra with some unique local flora and fauna. Bigger game like buffalo, leopard and zebra can also be seen.

Rutundu has two log cabins each with open log fires and en-suite bathrooms. The main cabin has a sitting and dining room, a verandah (which is perfect for breakfasts), a kitchen and an en-suite bathroom. The other cabin is detached from the main building and has a bedroom and bathroom. All bedding, towels, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils are provided.

Rutundu accommodates four people comfortably, and has another four beds available if guests are willing to share rooms. The cabins have been built along the principles of the Alaskan log cabin using large cedar logs found in the forests around the mountain. Moss fills the cracks between the logs to keep the cabins warm and cosy.
