In 1884, Scottish Geologist and Explorer, Joseph Thomson, discovered the Aberdare Ranges, called the “Nyandarua Ranges” by the local people. He also discovered the falls at the end of the Aberdare National Park and the falls were named after him him. In 1951, the 300 square mile Aberdare Range was officially made into a National Park and is one of Kenya’s major watersheds, supplying Nairobi’s water. It is a water catchment area as it is an undestroyed virgin forest and most of the rivers in Kenya start from the Aberdare National Park. It is the source of water that services the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.
Built within it’s own 1300 acre wildlife sanctuary on the slopes of Kamatongu Hill in Mweiga, Nyeri, the Aberdare Country Club is an ideal getaway destination in a beautiful setting. Our staff is very hospitable and will do all they can to make your stay memorable.
The sanctuary abounds with Zebra, Giraffe, Impala, Warthog, Duikers and the more elusive Leopard. It is a home to many species of East African birds.
All rooms are Cottages and have spectacular views to the North, over looking the Solio Game Sanctuary the home of the black and white rhinos. The Aberdare Mountains to the west and Mount Kenya to the East provide a stunning backdrop to the beautiful ACC grounds.
Aberdare Country Club serves as a check in point for its sister establishment, The Ark.
