There are a wealth of incredible wildlife encounters to be experienced amongst the verdant and dramatic landscapes of Chyulu Hills National Park. The wooded areas are great for bird watchers, whilst the open plains are home to herds of elephants. Giraffe, zebra, reedbuck, lion and leopard can also often be seen. With Mount Kilimanjaro as a backdrop, the park also makes for some wonderful wildlife photography.
Explore the hills with an energetic mountain bike ride through the striking landscape. Chyulu Hills are formed from ancient volcanoes, so there are plenty of peaks to test those leg muscles. Another great way to explore the ranch is on horseback. No matter what your skill level, enjoy a horse ride like no other!
Children over the age of five years are welcome at Ol Donyo Lodge and there is a dedicated two-bedroom Family Unit available. As well as unforgettable wildlife encounters, it’s a great place for children to learn more about the fascinating culture of the Maasai.
