The legendary Treetops Lodge may not retain the grandeur of days gone by, but remains a unique and atmospheric wildlife experience. The lodge is built on stilts and rooms surround a floodlit watering hole that is a magnet for wildlife.
Located in Aberdare National Park, this rustic Treehouse on its 80th anniversary has recently been renovated with all rooms now en-suite. This game viewing lodge was originally built in 1932 and is famous as the place where the then-Princess Elizabeth ascended to the British Throne. The father King George VI died on 5th Feb 1952 the night she spent at Treetops Lodge Nyeri while on honeymoon. Despite its royal associations, it is important to understand that the accommodation is rustic and relatively basic.
Treetops Lodge Nyeri lies in the path of an Elephant migratory route between the Aberdare Ranges and Mt Kenya National park, and is strategically sited right in front of a natural watering hole and salt lick.
With large windows fitted in all guest rooms, restaurant and lounge guests can watch Elephants, Buffalos, Rhinos and more from all areas including the viewing deck on top floor of the building. There is even an optional buzzer in the rooms that alerts guests when a spectacle is unfolding at the waterhole.
This lodge-on-stilts is accessed through a gradual ramp to the top floor and a Tree grows right through the building. There are 36 en-suite guest rooms that include 3 spacious suites and 33 twin rooms that can be converted into double rooms. A disabled friendly room is located on the first floor.
Guests are advised to bring warm clothing as nights can get chilly at this lodge, which is 6,450ft above sea level.

Dear Lisa, We are now back home and had a fantastic time. All the arrangements went seamlessly, transport and hotels were great. Laikipia was amazing, a very personal experience and they did all they could to accommodate everything we wanted to do. The river location was fantastic and ideal for the children as they got to swim in it. It is somewhere we would all like to return to. There might not have been the numbers that you get on the Masai Mara however we got to see lions with cubs, two black leopards, a golden leopard and the wild dogs as well as a huge number of other animals and birds. Thank you for suggesting to stay for 4 nights, it was just the right amount of time. The tamarin Hotel was a good choice as we were able to eat at the Carnivore restaurant which was an experience. Mauritius was lovely and relaxing, just what we needed after a very active time in Laikipia. Accommodation and service was great. Weather was good for most of the time, a few showers over the last couple of days. Thank you once again for organising it all. Sally

It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
Kind regards, John

I had just the most incredible time on the climb.
The team were incredible and just so accommodating. I really only have good things to say as it was such a great experience.
George was as good as a guide as it gets, very articulate and made sure I was comfortable the whole way up with frequent briefings.
