Lush green lawns, quaint but beautiful one storey buildings with red brick roofs, hilly but pristine locations and grandeur furnishings are some of the outstanding features of clubs and country lodges in Kenya.  Most Kenyan country lodges and clubs have rooms with private balconies overlooking a garden, an exotic forest or rolling hills.

Guests wine and dine in a variety of spots, all spots hand-picked to offer the perfect ambiance to enjoy sumptuous meals.  For instance, in some lodges, guests dine on the veranda looking over the garden or in a dining room with ceiling to floor windows. Elegantly furnished living rooms, spacious bedrooms with en-suite facilities and a range of recreational activities on-site are other highlights of most clubs and country lodges in Kenya.

Here are five of the most outstanding country lodges and clubs in Kenya.
