Olerai House was originally an old farmhouse and the land surrounding was hard by the owner farmers. Now Olerai has revamped itself into a stunning escape and the land has been re-wilded to create a 400-acre sanctuary for local wildlife.
It’s a two-hour drive from Nairobi to reach Olerai House and Wildlife Sanctuary, along excellent roads. You’ll be greeted by soaring acacias on arrival, as well as towers of giraffe, expansive buffalo herds and grazing zebra. Being so close to wildlife means you don’t need to wander far to feel immersed in nature; the animals here are comfortable with their visitors exploring near by on foot. Walks of all lengths and fitness levels are encouraged and there really is no better way to feel connected with Africa than traversing the land as our ancestors have done for millennia before us.
If you can tear yourself away from the sprawling grounds, you can also enjoy a boat trip to Crescent Island with a picnic, a sunrise horseback ride, a hike up Mt Longonot or a day trip to the Northern lakes of Boringo and Bogoria to see the huge flocks of flamingos that this region of Kenya is most famous for.
