Positives: Property - at first sight: a really lovely property. Each room comes with a star bed (so you can sleep under the stars), and a nice plunge pool which a number of birds, baboons, monkeys, squirrels, etc, use as their watering source. You can...More

If you rate this lodge less than excellent, your standards are too damn high. The staff cared for our family group of 15 as though we were their own. The guides are excellent, knowledgeable, skilled and kind. The meals were wonderful, but the settings were...More

Everything about our days and nights there was special, starting with the small plane landing circling the dirt landing strip to clear away the wildlife to delicious food and wine and a huge, palapa-roofed suite. We are extra happy with the fact that our shower...More

About
Description
Imagine...275,000 Acres of scenic Africa, where the wildlife can be found free and roaming, without tourists in mini buses or a set schedule. Imagine...Travelling across the archetypal savannahs More of East Africa in an open 4x4 game drive vehicle without limitation, feeling the rhythm of Africa beneath your feet as you walk with expert trackers, or horseback riding with Mount Kilimanjaro as a backdrop. Imagine...Exploring this paradise, and then coming home to one of the most luxurious small lodges in Kenya where a hot bath, in or outdoor shower, or private swimming pool await - all with inspiring views across the expansive plains, plus delicious food, charming hosts and world-class service.Ol Donyo Lodge is in the heart of the 275,000 acre Mbirikani Group Ranch, located on the slopes of the Chyulu Hills National Park between the Amboseli and Tsavo West National Parks in southeast Kenya. Its location is unrivalled with full views of Mount Kilimanjaro and in the path of seasonal elephant migrations. It is a lodge rich in history, passion and conservation. Less
