Marasa Africa appoints new general manager for the Aberdare Country Club in Kenya

Marasa Africa Kenya is delighted to announce the appointment of Richard Hodgson as the new general manager of the Aberdare Country Club.  After working in the Casino industry in the UK and later in Africa, Richard returned to the UK to be trained in the Hotel industry. He returned to Africa with his new found skills and started working for Southern Sun and moved between South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania before he started at Marasa Africa in Uganda in 1999 when they opened Mweya in “Queen Elizabeth National Park”.

Richard moved to different properties of the Marasa Africa group in Uganda and will now be applying his considerable knowledge of the industry and the group’s workings in Kenya . The Aberdare Country Club, only a two and a half hour drive northeast from Nairobi, is nestled on a slope of Mweiga Hill in the Aberdare Highlands, part of the Great Rift Valley. Considered a heritage property in Kenya, The Aberdare Country Club has retained the charm of a private home with the simple comforts of a country inn.

All the rooms at The Aberdare Country Club are in the form of cottages and one standard suite. There is 21 cottages available and one standard Suite, with two, three and five bedroom options for the cottages. Take an early morning walk in the wildlife sanctuary or a drive to the Solio Game ranch where you will find both white and black rhino or visit the Aberdare National park.  Or you can just relax by the pool or play a round of golf.
