The Adventure begins the moment you arrive at the Grand Burnham Hut. All you need to do is sit back and feel at Home as you enjoy the African bush with us! 

LOCATION

The Grand Burnham Hut sits within the Aberdares Ranges which covers a 160 km (100 mile) long mountain range of upland, north of Kenya's capital Nairobi with an average elevation of 4,001 metres (13,130 ft). It is home to a wide variety of wildlife. There are multitudes of elephant, buffalo, giant forest hog, hyena as well as the endangered black rhino and bongo. A variety of cats including leopards, servals, civet, genet and the rare African golden cat. Other threatened species including the Jackson mongoose, the black and white colobus monkey and Sykes' monkey are plentiful, as are waterbuck, reedbuck, duikers, and bushbuck

There are endless opportunities for game viewing, so all you need to do is sit back and let the wildlife come to you.

Volunteer Opportunities

The vital work of the Grand Burnham Hut is made possible by people like you who contribute their unique backgrounds, talents and skill levels. Our needs change based on current events, adding flexibility to get you involved in an area that inspires you! We work closely with neighbouring communities to ensure that the our presence goes hand in hand with community development. We recognise that education is the keystone to development, and thus our quest to provide education to our neighbouring communities. We believe that in order for the local people to live in thrive efforts must bring tangible benefits to their communities. Every year, the Grand Burnham Hut engages in community development projects/schemes which are extensive and make a considerable difference to communities. We direct a percentage of funds raised to the neighbouring communities, and through this program we have helped alleviate poverty and create enthusiasm for education amongst these communities.
