Luxury Holidays At Ol Donyo Lodge

Ol Donyo Lodge is a welcoming luxury camp nestled within the heart of the beautiful Chyulu Hills National Park in south-eastern Kenya. A member of Relais & Chateaux and National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, Ol Donyo Lodge is part of a 275,000-acre ranch, owned by the Maasai and leased by Great Plains Conservation. Delicious, homecooked and locally-inspired meals are served in the dining room or out in the bush, accompanied by the sounds and sights of the surrounding nature.
Against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro, safaris are conducted in open four-wheel drive game vehicles, on foot, by horseback or mountain bike. Due to the partnership with the Maasai and the emphasis on conservation here, the area is gloriously biodiverse. As well as giraffe, zebra, lion and leopard, the region is known for some of the largest elephants in Africa

Property Highlights:expand_more

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.

Hotel Experiences

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.
