Photographer's Note

Outspan Hotel is a history of upcountry colonial elegance and was built in 1927 facing Mt. Kenya.

Outspan is named to suggest how early travellers prepared to rest at journey's end, "out spanning" weary oxen from oxcarts.

The hotel stands solid, comfortable and elegant in well-tented rolling lawns accented with palms. Lush tropical gardens are laid out in English style to frame distant views of Mt. Kenya.

The hotel building itself has a certain graciousness of the past. Breakfast and lunch buffets are served on the open veranda with Chippendale chairs and white linen.

The dinning room has an elegance of mellow wood in the moldings, parquet floors and cathedral roof beams. Candlelight makes each table an intimate little island.

The main lounge, sherry bar and snooker room have paneling, fireplaces, brass fittings and overstuffed chairs and sofas in soft pastels and chintz.
