The white Rhino Hotel

“A heritage of warm hospitality”

In 1910, three Europeans – Berkely Cole, Lord Cranworth and Sandy Herd – founded the White Rhino Hotel in what was then, British East Africa. According to various historical accounts, they name the establishment after a rhino. It was shot at the site during one of the numerous game-hunts conducted by the white settlers. The White Rhino Hotel was well-known across the region as the first segregated exclusive pub. This was to keep off attacks on whites and local Africans by guard dogs. These would pounce on them if spotted in the vicinity. In 1965 after independence, the hotel was sold off to an Asian businessman. It has only 27 rooms – most of which were not self-contained – at the time.

The hotel offered mainly single rooms and lodging facilities and a bar and restaurant for guests. The bar section was then converted into a seminar hall and the hotel began to allow in the first African patrons. Five years after in 1970, the hotel was sold again. It was at this point that the “whites-only” sign, which had been put at the entrance, was removed, ushering in a new era for the hotel. The White Rhino Hotel was gazetted as a National Heritage site on 9th March, 2001.
