3 Day Kenya Fly-in Safari Rutundu Log Cabin Retreat

3 Day Kenya Fly-in Safari Rutundu Log Cabin Retreat begins in Nairobi and end in Nairobi. Our luxury flying package to Rutundu is perfect for fishermen, walkers, families, adventurers and those simple wanting to experience the tranquility of the mountain. 

Rutundu is also undeniably romantic for those on honeymoon. Popular activities walking, hiking, fishing, bird watching and Horse riding.

One of Kenya’s best-kept secrets, the two log cabins at Rutundu (Rutundu Log Cabins) on the lower slopes of Mount Kenya offer a remote wilderness retreat. Guests spend their days soaking up the spectacular mountain views, watching for birdlife and fauna with a pair of binoculars from the cabin porch, and enjoying rewarding hikes and excellent fishing.

There is no phone signal at the cabins or Wi-Fi, so you can truly escape civilization for a few days. For couples and honeymooners, this is the ultimate romantic escape. The cabins are not easily accessible (something many of the most beautiful spots in the world have in common!) and are self-catering, so rarely included in a typical safari itinerary to Kenya as a result.

We’ve taken the hard work off your hands — providing delicious food supplies for the Rutundu cook to rustle up into delicious meals, wood for the fire, and can arrange everything from start to finish to ensure a magical stay.

The two Rutundu cabins are usually self-catering, but we provide all of the food and drink you’ll need. In addition, there are staff who will cook for you.

The cabins are simple and rustic but very comfortable, each with a main bedroom, small twin/ bunk bedroom and bathroom. There is no electricity and lights are in the form of solar lamps. A fireplace keeps the cabins cozy in the cooler months.

The staff are available if you need anything but typically leave you to enjoy this remote mountain location with minimal interruption. Due to the mountainous location, weather can be unpredictable, so we recommend packing for all conditions – sun, rain, hail and anything in between.
