Ol Donyo Lodge

Chyulu Hills, Kenya


Ol Donyo Lodge is one of Kenya’s premier wildlife destinations conserving an incredible, forgotten paradise. 275,000 acres of immaculate, private wild Africa borders the Chyulu Hills National Park and blends contemporary design with the rich culture and history of the indomitable Maasai.


The area is rich in wildlife. Africa’s giant elephant bulls roam free, haunting calls of leopards interrupt the night and lion stalk prey. With views out to a distant Mount Kilimanjaro, each cottage merges outdoor and indoor living with eight of the ten private cottages offering their own swimming pool whilst all enjoy intimate roof terraces “star beds”, allowing you the thrill of sleeping in style under a canopy of endless African stars.
