ol Donyo Lodge

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.

ol-donyo-lodge-accommodation

Ol Donyo Lodge’s founder Richard Bonham had often flown over this spectacular landscape but one day in the 1980s, he was moved to land his Cessna on the open plains and meet the local Maasai. That was only the first of many meetings, before the birth of a pioneering community conservation tourism project. The concept was simple: Richard brings guests to this remote group ranch to participate in safaris, and the Maasai share the benefits. But nothing in Africa is that simple, really. And so began a life-long relationship with the Maasai, the wildlife and the game ranch.

 

Lewa Wilderness Camp

Lewa Wilderness is located in Lewa Downs at the foot of Mt.Kenya and is one of Kenya’smost successful private conservation areas. It has been the Craig family home since 1924 when the Craig grandparents came from England and began raising cattle here, and is still the home of Will and Emma Craig. Accommodation is in 9 comfortable cottages with en-suite bathrooms and the food is wholesome, ranch style and organically grown. Lewa Wilderness offers an exclusive hideaway from which to explore the African bush with a diverse array of wildlife in some of Kenya’s most spectacular scenery. Activities include day and night game viewing drives, bush walks, horse riding, camel rides, farm visits and cultural visits. There is also the opportunity to visit the on-going conservation projects and also the craft centre run by the local community. For those wishing to relax, there is a swimming pool which seems to flow right over the escarpment.
