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, situated 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 a honeymoon.
