The White Rhino Hotel
National Heritage Site
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, the establishment was named after a rhino, which was shot at the site during one of the numerous game-hunts conducted by the white settlers.
