Castle Forest Lodge is located deep in the thick forest on the slopes to the south of Mount Kenya. It is set in a natural surrounding of rainforest, fresh water rivers with falls, a fabulous view of the valley on one side of the lodge, and the impressive peaks of Mount Kenya on the other. “High altitude (~10000ft 3000m) with low humidity outside the rainy seasons, and far from urban areas. When you’re not skywatching, you can go on forest hikes, but avoid becoming footwear for elephants and buffalo!”
