Treetops started as a 2-room tree house in 1929. It aroused international interest in February 1952 when a young British visitor climbed into the tree as Princess Elizabeth and climbed down the following morning as Queen Elizabeth II.
The lodge is now raised on stilts and has 4 decks and a rooftop viewing platform. The rooms, small ship-like cabins overlooking two floodlit waterholes, are made up of 43 standard rooms, 5 triples and 2 suites. Guests check in at the Outspan Hotel, 17km away, where they eat lunch before transferring to Treetops for afternoon tea and dinner. Malkia Bar on the top deck is open for sundowners while the Main Bar is open until midnight.
Treetops is located at the Salient, the area with the highest concentration of wildlife in the Aberdare National Park. Rare animals include black rhino, the elusive bongo, the giant forest hog and civet and serval cats. 290 bird species have been recorded. Treetops offers a full day tour during which guests ascend through bamboo forest first to Chania falls, then Magura falls and finally the spectacular 300m Karuru falls.
Treetops is engaged in a 4-year conservation initiative Restore the Bush with KWS involving the rehabilitation of 125 hectares of the Aberdare National Park.
