Rutundu Log Cabins Mount Kenya

Rutundu Log Cabins Mount Kenya is located on the rim of Lake Rutundu, overlooking the northeastern face of Mt Kenya. These simple but welcoming cabins, located on the edge of Lake Rutundu, are the perfect place to escape from the fast pace of modern life, unwind and experience nature at close range. 

Enjoy walking in the incredibly fresh mountain air or try your hand at trout fishing on Lake Rutundu or Lake Alice.  Bring your catch back to cook and enjoy from the veranda of the main cabin, with incredible views across the magical high-altitude heathland. 

Rutundu is perfect for fishermen, walkers, families, adventurers, and those simply wanting to experience the tranquility of the mountain.  Rutundu is also undeniably romantic for those on honeymoon.

There is an airstrip about 1.5 km from the cabins and a helicopter pad about 0.1 km from the cabins. Nanyuki is about 4.5 hours’ drive away from the camp.

Getting to Rutundu log Cabins by Road
Rutundu Log Cabins can be reached by turning off the main Nanyuki – Isiolo road up to the log cabins, a four-wheel drive vehicle is needed, and the drive should take about 1.5 hours.

The road deteriorates somewhat from the hollow trees onwards; the trees are a good half way mark in terms of time. The road ends at the Kizita gorge, where you leave your vehicle.

From here to the cabins is a 15-minute, challenging walk through the gorge. The staff will meet you where the road ends and will carry your luggage to the cabins.

Getting to Rutundu Log Cabins by Air
Rutundu Log Cabins by air can be reached through an airstrip about 1.5 km from the cabins and a heli pad about 100 meters from the cabins.

Overnight stays are a must in this case. Please be warned that the horses are well trained polo horses and you need to be an experienced rider.
