Photographer's Note

TREETOPS / OUTSPAN?The famous Treetops Hotel started off very meekly - a tiny two roomed dwelling lofted into a fig tree as early as the 1930's.
In the 1950's Treetops became for a while the centre of the world stage - albeit a sad one. For in an evening of one day young Elizabeth Windsor slept quietly as a Princess and woke the following day to realise she had become Queen - her father, King George VI having died during the night.

Thereafter, Treetops reputation had spread far and wide; for the globetrotter, the rich, the famous, and the fashionable, no visit to Africa - Kenya was regarded complete without experiencing the Treetops adventure.
Even today, with all the exciting safari lodges, and camps Kenya has to offer, 50 room Treetops heads the list for many of our customers. Treetops is sited in the heart of the dense lichen hung forest of the Aberdares National Park, and overlooks two waterholes, and the magnificent snowy peaks of Mount Kenya.

For the safety and comfort of several observation lounges, guests can photograph at close quarters the territorial charge of short sighted rhino, a protective elephant matriarch chaperoning her calf, the graceful bounding of a bushbuck doe. A family of lions, have on more than one occasion, made a meal of some poor unfortunate warthog to the fascinated horror of Treetops diners.
For those guests who value their sleep as much as the nocturnal entertainment, everyone is allocated a comfortable bed in either a single or twin room with plentiful shared bathroom facilities, or on request, suites with its own bathroom. If you wish to do your game viewing the 'lazy way', the professional hunter can wake you up each time one of the big five visits the tree house! Make sure you do not miss out an experience of a lifetime.
