The Nairobi Safari Club has signed a management partnership deal with global hotel operator Swiss-Belhotel International to manage the iconic all-suite hotel in the heart of Nairobi, Kenya.

The management partnership with Nairobi Safari Club is part of Swiss-Belhotel International’s Africa portfolio expansion strategy for the Hong Kong-based global hotel management group that focuses on the unique fusion of Swiss hospitality professionalism with Asian passion for service.

Located at the 16-storey Lilian Towers, Nairobi Safari Club by Swiss-Belhotel owned by local hospitality investment firm Mukawa (Hotels) Holdings Ltd, is Nairobi’s only all-suite hotel and stands out as a landmark in the Central Business District (CBD) area, thanks to its award-winning architectural design.

As part of the strategic partnership, the four-star hotel established in 1984 by the late Kenyan Businessman and Member of Parliament, Stanley Munga Githunguri, will be rebranded as Nairobi Safari Club by Swiss-Belhotel.

Speaking when they jointly confirmed the partnership, Directors of Mukawa (Hotels) Holdings Ltd, Ms Clare Njeri Githunguri and Ms Lilian Joy Nyagaki Githunguri, said plans are underway to revamp the facilities and service offering.

While paying tribute to their father’s legacy, Clare and Lilian Githunguri said the partnership with Swiss-Belhotel has been undertaken in keeping with Stanley Githunguri’s vision that Nairobi Safari Club be a premier hotel in Nairobi, Kenya.
