Accessibility & Contact Us
Rutundu is open all year round however weather conditions on Mount Kenya can be unpredictable, with bright sunny days changing into cloud, rain or hailstorms. Therefore bookings must be made upon the understanding that the weather may adjust your travel plans at the last moment. If it is raining it is not usually possible to drive up. If this is the case you may have to change your dates without any additional booking charge, or can be refunded.
By Road: From the turning on the main Nanyuki-Isiolo road up to the log cabins a 4 x 4 vehicle with good clearance is essential. The drive takes approximately three and a half hours from this turning (so from Nanyuki to the cabins takes about four hours and twenty minutes). The road deteriorates somewhere from the hollow trees (Hargenia) onwards - these trees are a good half-way mark. The road ends at the Kizita/Kithita gorge, where there is a parking area to leave your vehicle. From here the cabins are a challenging fifteen minutes walk though the gorge. The Rutundu team will meet you where the road ends and carry your luggage up to the log cabins.
By Air: There is an airstrip about 1.5kms from the cabins and a helicopter-landing site about 100m from the cabins.
