Once a working colonial era farm, Ololo Lodge has a very peaceful location on the southern edge of Nairobi National Park, just 30 minutes drive from Kenya’s main international airport.
There is a variety of rooms at Ololo Lodge, Stable Rooms, Cottages and Suites, all of which are converted farm buildings. Although the rooms have varying outlooks and amounts of space, they all have en-suite bathrooms, wi-fi, hairdryers, and very comfortable beds with high quality linen. The main building was once the farmhouse, and has a lovely lounge with a huge fireplace, a peaceful and well stocked library, a wine cellar and a bar. The restaurant is open fronted, and has views across the plains into the national park. Meals are prepared with produce grown on the property, and the emphasis is on fresh seasonal menus.
Wildlife & Activities
Ololo is an excellent choice for an overnight stay when connecting with an international flight, and it also makes a good base for a few nights of relaxation as well as wildlife viewing inside Nairobi National Park. Numerous excursions can be arranged at the lodge, including visits to the Sheldrick orphanage, Karen Blixen Museum, and Kitengela Glass workshops.
