JUNGLE-TOP HOTEL (Sep, 1954)

The original Tree Tops Hotel pictured here was burned down by Mau Mau terrorists 27 May 1954.  It has since been rebuilt.

JUNGLE-TOP HOTEL

PERCHED 60 feet above the ground in the fork of a giant fig tree that overlooks a pool and a salt lick near Nyeri, Africa, is one of the most unique “hotels” in the world. Guests remain only one night and chances are that few of them will sleep for they usually stay awake to watch from their observation platform the wild animals—elephants, rhinoceros, buffalo, leopards, giant hogs, monkeys, etc., that come daily to lick the salt and quench their thirst in the pool.

THERE IS ONLY ONE “WALDORF” (Sep, 1938)

And yes, you can still get a Waldorf Salad at the Waldorf

THERE IS ONLY ONE “WALDORF”

Its towers, sharply etched against the sky, are modern as tomorrow… yet its tradition of hospitality goes back to a grand and spacious age.

Its glamorous restaurants, favorite gathering-places of metropolitan society, are vibrant with music and gaiety… while above, its rooms are star-quiet in the night, peaceful as the hills of home.

Its guests include the great ones of a busy world… and the quiet, unassuming people who make that world go ’round.
