ol Donyo Lodge - A place of untamed beauty


Couples & Families

Nestled between Kenya’s Tsavo East and Amboseli National Parks in the heart of the Chyulu Hills, ol Donyo Lodge is a place of untamed beauty that neighbours the great Mount Kilimanjaro.

Set on the Mbirikani Group Ranch, this lodge offers 275,000 acres of private land which is home to an enormous variety of wildlife, including some of Africa’s last giant elephant bulls. Owned by 4,000 Maasai, the lodge actively helps the local community and conservation efforts of the local area.

Rebuilt in 2008, and nestled within thick woodland on a hillside, guests enjoy phenomenal surroundings and views over expansive plains that reach out to Kilimanjaro.

16 guests can stay at oL Donyo Lodge at any one time, meaning that your stay always remains quiet and peaceful. All suites and villas have their own unique layout, and benefit from luxury modern amenities including private plunge pools.

Being a luxury safari destination, at ol Donyo Lodge there is a wide offering of outdoor activities, such as game drives, guided bush walks, horse riding, conservation and community out-reach programmes, night camping on private ‘star beds’, plus much more.

There are plenty of ways to unwind too, through activities such as massages and bush dinners. If you stay for a longer period of time, experience fly camping, where you can embark on a longer safari adventure.

The lodge

Designed to merge the outdoors with the indoors, ol Donyo’s accommodation is constructed out of natural, sustainable materials that blend into the surrounding environment. The suites and villas offer plenty of space, natural light, and living areas to make your stay comfortable and luxurious.

No two spaces are the same, but every one benefits from a lounge, dining area, and plunge pool. Roof terraces are fantastic for late evenings star gazing, and natural fireplaces make the spaces cosy and inviting.

The family villa is perfect for larger groups, benefiting from two spacious bedrooms and high ceilings. A short walk away from the villas and suites is a fantastic hide, where you can stay to watch animals who visit the watering hole. 

You can relax having dinner served in your private living room, and you can also enjoy outdoor dining behind the wine cellar in a private or shared set up. Spend some time wine tasting, or have dinner in the dining area that looks out on to the plains.


Suites and villas have modern amenities, and guests can go on a range of day and night activities.


Enjoy sustainable international food that is served in a variety of locations with unique surroundings. 

Why Wayfairer

ol Donyo Lodge is constructed from natural materials, while energy is generated from solar power, and recycling initiatives are in place. The land is leased from the local Maasai community, and money the lodge generates goes back to conservation. Guests can help with the development of local schools and Black Rhino initiatives.
