ol Donyo Lodge
ol Donyo Lodge is located on the slopes of the Chyulu Hills National Park between the Amboseli and Tsavo West National Parks in south east Kenya. From here you have a full view of Mount Kilimanjaro and are in the path of seasonal elephant migrations.
This contemporary and yet traditionally designed lodge consists of 10 guest suites in 6 stand-alone villas. No 2 spaces are of the same design yet all have a dramatic view of the African savannah and its flat top acacia trees.
Each suite has a lounge, verandah, indoor and outdoor showers, double washbasins, flush toilet and bath, and “star-bed”. The rooftop “star-bed” is accessed from the verandah via a winding stone staircase. This marvellous sleep-out option under the African sky offers utter privacy while including all the necessary amenities.
All but 2 of the suites have their own private pools and are 4-bedded private villas, ideal for families or small groups of friends.
Just below the main area, but also on the hillside, is an infinity pool complete with a private lounge and dining area. With luxurious furnishings and views of the lodge’s waterhole, it is the perfect place to while away the afternoon.
Activities include early morning and late afternoon/early evening 4x4 open game drives, guided bushwalks, night drives, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, tracking, conservation and community out-reach programs, and wildlife viewing from an open-air hide.
Al fresco lunches on the verandah and candlelit dinners in the main dining room are provided as well as breakfasts in the plains and dinners under the African sky. You can also enjoy surprise sundowners and classic English tea in a bush setting.
Optional day trips present visits to Amboseli National Park, Chyulu East National Park, cultural visits to Masai villages, a scenic flight around Mt. Kilimanjaro, and in-room massage service. These activities should be requested at the time of reservation and are at an additional cost.
