About Rhino Watch Safari Lodge
Rhino Watch Safari Lodge offers maximum comfort in a friendly atmosphere and provides an ideal base for safari game drives in various parks and protected areas that surround the lodge. These areas are some of the best places in Africa to see the rhino.
The Lodge is situated in Kenya´s central highlands nestled between Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains. The magnificent view of Mt Kenya is only one of the reasons to choose for a safari holiday here. The complex offers a number of different accommodation styles, including luxury safari tents, comfortable chalets, and cozy family homes.
Their experienced staff and complete kitchen allow us to offer virtually any type of food. The menu includes vegetarian dishes, a children´s menu, fresh fish from the Indian Ocean or the mountain streams of the Aberdares, the best quality beef from the pastures of the central highlands, and Indian rice dishes. You name it, we can prepare it. Every day we also serve a delicious selection of fresh fruits and vegetables from the fertile gardens of the surrounding area.
The Rhino Watch Safari Lodge is located in the vast plains between Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains. It is our concern that all our guests feel comfortable with us. That is why there are different accommodations for different requirements. In the upper area of the complex, there are 5 double chalets and 2 family chalets. These are pure feel-good accommodations where you also like to stay, relax, and enjoy. In the lower area, there are 9 exclusive safari tents that were lovingly built in a bush forest. Since September 2013 there has also been the new, exclusive honeymoon chalet, which is located slightly outside the complex.
Drinks are served in our cozy bush bar. The hotel complex is only accessible to guests of the Rhino Watch Lodge and is closed to the public. So all guests are among themselves. The bush restaurant, completed in September 2012, offers maximum comfort in a warm atmosphere. Here we serve delicacies from our bush kitchen. Also new is the outside terrace directly in front of the restaurant.
In the middle of the lodge, there is a pond where weaver birds like to nest. Right next to it we built a library with a small sunset bar. Here is a TV with a cable connection available to learn the latest from all over the world. On the roof, you have a great view and you can watch birds on the roofs of the trees. A birdwatching veranda at the pond has also been open since December 2014.
The veranda is surrounded by blooming flowers and bushes. The ideal place to take tea. Next to the Sunset Bar, there is a pavilion that we use for demonstrations. Small seminar groups can also be accommodated here. Special interest groups can also make excellent use of this space, such as yoga or meditation.
There has been a small spa section since December 2014. This is equipped with a sauna, a relaxing jacuzzi, and a massage room. Here we offer various relaxing massages, a real relaxation after an exhausting safari day. We are constantly striving to further align the lodge to the needs of our guests and thus create the highest standard for your well-being. Visit us on Rhino Watch, experience pure wilderness in the surrounding protected areas and relax in a family atmosphere, and enjoy the friendly, professional service. Caribou tena.
