Top choice historic hotel in Aberdare National Park

Treetops is sold through the Outspan Hotel in Nyeri, where check-in happens. From here guests must drive themselves to Treetops, where they dine, sleep and have breakfast, after which they leave at their leisure. Although the rooms are small, they are all kitted out with dark-wood floors, ochre feature walls and attractive prints.

The suites are better value than the standard rooms and you can request the Queen Elizabeth ‘suite’ (for the same price as the other two suites), where in 1952 the current British monarch learned of the death of her father, which led to her ascending the throne.
