The Outspan Hotel is in Nyeri, Kenya. It was built up from an old farm by Eric Sherbrooke Walker in the 1920s. Famous visitors include Robert Baden-Powell, 1st Baron Baden-Powell and his wife Olave Baden-Powell from 1938 until Baden-Powell's death in 1941. Jim Corbett also lived there.[1]

The hotel is linked with the Treetops Hotel, approximately 15 kilometres away in the Aberdare National Park, and with the Shimba Lodge in the Shimba Hills National Reserve.
