Ol Donyo Lodge offers guests exclusive access to 275 000 acres of one of the few remaining wilderness areas in East Africa: the Chyulu Hills Range runs between Amboseli and Tsavo national parks. At Ol Donyo Lodge you can go on day or night game drives, guided walks, mountain biking, or horseback safaris through the game-packed surrounding areas.

Visit a nearby Maasai village for a fascinating glimpse into the local culture, or head out to the Amboseli Game Reserve for some exceptional wildlife viewing. When you’re not out exploring, you can relax on your rooftop deck or laze beside the swimming pool.
