Fairmont Hotels and Resorts Kenya presents a three stop destination with the potential for leisure and business guests to experience the best of East Africa. The resorts offer unrivalled luxury and adventure in three iconic properties; The Norfolk in Nairobi, Mount Kenya Safari Club near the base of Mount Kenya and Mara Safari Club within the plains of the Masai Mara.

Guillaume Durand, Group Director Sales & Marketing, Fairmont Hotels and Resorts Kenya said: “We successfully launched a campaign to position our Kenyan properties as a three stop destination. Drawing on the unique characteristics, location, history and heritage of each hotel, we highlight the benefits of experiencing all our properties and locations to both leisure and business travellers for a 360 experience that includes the lively city, the tranquillity of Mount Kenya and the call of the wild with safari adventure in the Mara. This year we are enriching this three stop experience with art, design, gastronomy, CSR and conservation beyond Safari initiatives.”

The unforgettable three stop experience begins at the celebrated Fairmont The Norfolk in Nairobi – a landmark hotel steeped in history. The optimal city base to explore the city and Nairobi’s best attractions including the home of Karen Blixen represented in the Academy Award winning film “Out of Africa”, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust famed for its elephant orphanage, the Giraffe Centre – home to the endangered Rothschild species, the National Museum of Kenya and Nairobi National Park. Nearby championship golf courses Karen Country Club and Muthaiga Golf Club offer premium grounds for play. Meeting and conference facilities cater to business needs, while award-winning restaurants serve excellent Kenyan and international cuisine.

Axel Hauser, General Manager, Fairmont The Norfolk and Fairmont Mara Safari Club said of The Norfolk: “The hotel retains its charm as one of the most beloved landmarks in the city attracting both locals and international travellers. The bleisure trend is a growth area for us and the business hub of Nairobi offers the ideal base to extend the stay onward to our other properties, Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club and Fairmont Mara Safari Club.”

 Next on the circuit is Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club; the exclusive former home of actor William Holden which has played host to Hollywood’s elite. The exclusive retreat not only straddles the equator but is also nestled in the foothills of Africa’s second highest peak (Mount Kenya). The property retains all of its silver screen allure providing a snapshot of the glamorous bygone era. The recently opened culinary offering at Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club is the restaurant: Colobus Grill which provides haute cuisine dining for those seeking an exceptional culinary experience. There’s plenty for travellers to do on property including a visit the onsite animal orphanage and The Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy notable for the breeding of the endangered Mount Kenya antelope – the bongo.

Laurent Chaudet, General Manager, Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club said: “The hotel marks its 60th anniversary this year. To celebrate this milestone a new gourmet restaurant has recently opened and in the pipeline are; two new villas, a new spa and wellness offering, CSR activities and conservation project. Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club is a special property which provides guests with a unique blend of relaxation and adventure. Activities on offer include; game watching, mountain climbing, horse riding excursions, golf or R&R.” 

The itinerary concludes at Fairmont Mara Safari Club where the thrill of safari awaits. Combining a traditional camping experience with the comfort of a luxury resort hotel including four poster beds and en-suite bathrooms, the resort is the perfect base for leisure and guided safari game drives. In a prime spot in the Ol-Choro Oiroua Conservation area that borders the Masai Mara Game Reserve, the resort offers one of the best locations to spot the big five and see herds of wildebeest crossing at the National Reserve in season (July – October).
