Description: Up the hill along Valley road and at the furthest foot of Kenyatta Avenue lies one of Kenya’s most sought-after tourism properties, Sarova Panafric. It is here where colonialism met pan-Africanism creating an exceptional meeting spot for varied world cultures. Sarova Panafric Hotel, boosts of rich & unrivalled history amassed over four decades since inception in 1965. When quests for Africa’s Independence raged in 1960’s, the Sarova Panafric hosted many of Africa nationalists. Sarova Panafric was the center of liberalism. That’s how the befitting name came into being, in the spirits of the Pan African movement. Even Kenya’s first president, H.E, the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta had a soft spot for the hotel! He inaugurated it on 5th January 1965. Since then; the hotel has continued to resonate with the best of Africa’s repertoire.
