Mt Kenya Safari Clubs - Finest Africa Mountain Vacation Lodge
The Mount Kenya safari clubs, with its mix of love, history, and surroundings has become a Kenyan custom. Constructed right at the equator on a ridge facing Mt Kenya the website is magnificent-well worth a see just for the view alone. The grand primary building gleam white versus the green sweep of surrounding yards and there are remarkable views of the foothill forest increasing to the peaks of Mt Kenya
The original building was created as a dream home by Rhoda Prudhomme for her spouse. As a rich New York matron of 50 Rhoda fell for the young French pilot who took her huge game searching on her safari in Kenya.she quit all to wed and cope with him in Njoro amongst the Happy Valley set of the 1930s. The land had been owned by a Mrs. Wheelers who accepted sell it to them as "only fans would live there." The Prudhommes called your home they developed Mawingu, Swahili for the clouds masking the slopes of Mt Kenya
The Sense of history stays strong in the primary building and the original William Holden homes. There is an odd mix of colonial Kenya and the glamour and appeal of the Hollywood set. In the Trophy lounge huge leather seats and the walls sports antlers and installed heads- the space exude "searching' and "gentleman." In the neighboring Mountain View lounge zebra skins area with shiny images of movie stars. It is not hard to envision these spaces peopled with movie and stars of earlier days.
