Attractions

The ultimate Equator Experience

Experience luxury at the heart of Kenya.

Nestled in the lush foothills of Mount Kenya, Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club is strategically located along the equator allowing guests to experience both the Northern and Southern hemispheres within the resort. The Equator brings a unique experience commonly known as the ‘Coriolis’ effect’ which according to scientists, is the apparent deflection of moving objects when the motion is described relative to a rotating reference frame.

The Equator ceremony is a memorable experience and a must do while at the Club. Our expert guides will demonstrate the Coriolis effect using a large basin that shows how draining water swirls clockwise or anticlockwise depending on whether one is on the northern or southern hemisphere. The demonstration is followed by a ceremony where all guests are awarded certificates while dancing to the drum beats accompanied by traditional dancers from the region.
