The Sarova Panafric is celebrating its Jubilee year together with Kenya as it was officially opened in 1963. The hotel has a rich and fascinating history as it hosted many patriots and African heroes such H.E. Jomo Kenyatta, Julius Nyerere (Tanzania), Kwame Nkuruma (Ghana) and Milton Obote (Uganda).
These founding fathers of Africa’s independent states were hosted at the hotel in the 60’s under the umbrella of Pan Africanism and that is how the hotel got its’ name; Panafric.
The Flame Tree Restaurant found in the hotel was once a watering hole for Kenya’s freedom fighters, the Mau Mau as well as spies and foreign correspondents.
The Panafric as it seems, is deeply gifted with rich Kenyan history.
The Sarova Panafric 50 year of existence celebration is taking place this whole month of October with a special program lined up to immerse visitors and guests in the country’s magnificent and unrivaled heritage.
