Overview of Deloraine House

A family-owned and -run lodge, Deloraine House lies in a rugged Rift Valley landscape less than an hour’s drive from Lake Nakuru, one of Kenya’s famous soda lakes and home on occasion to hundreds of thousands of flamingos.

Built in the 1920s on the slopes of an extinct volcano, the lodge has a fascinating history and enjoys a reputation as a leading equestrian centre. For keen and experienced riders, Deloraine offers multi-day horseback safaris in various parks and reserves around Kenya as well as local day rides for both experts and beginners where you enjoy panoramic views of the Rift Valley. A Deloraine highlight is a ride through a protected forest where you will be on the lookout for the rare black-and-white colobus monkey.

With only five en suite bedrooms in the main house and a further three in the adjoining cottage, Deloraine is a small and intimate lodge that welcomes honeymooners and couples as well as families. It has a swimming pool, tennis court, polo field and croquet lawn as well as two family rooms with shared bathrooms. It is a perfect destination to kick off your shoes and relax ‘in-house’ for a day or two before a rewarding a trip to Lake Nakuru National Park. If the flamingos are present, the views are spectacular. There are buffalo, hippo and giraffe as well as elusive leopards and rhinos plus an amazing bird count of around 400 species – more than enough to compensate for an absence of flamingos!
