Location
Nestled between Kenya’s Tsavo West and Amboseli National Parks, and in the impressive shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro, sits Ol Donyo Lodge. This is one of East Africa’s most fascinating wildlife destinations, and the imaginative design of the lodge is a unique addition to the landscape.

Accommodation
No two villas or suites at Ol Donyo Lodge are the same, but they all emerge - seemingly organically - from the landscape either side of the palatial main lodge area. Each room has its own roof terrace and plunge pool on the deck, as well as rustic chic interiors and star beds that can be wheeled outside for a night of romantic stargazing.

  • While away some time in the sunken hide - set right by a waterhole, this is the perfect place for wildlife viewing. You can even stay out overnight, if you wish.
