Ol Donyo Lodge is in the heart of the Mbirikani Maasai Group Ranch, located on the slopes of the Chyulu Hills National Park between Amboseli and Tsavo West National Parks in southeast Kenya. Its location is unrivaled - full views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and in the path of traditional wildlife migration routes. It is a lodge rich in history, passion and conservation.The 20-bed lodge inclusive of the four bed private bush home was rebuilt and redesigned in 2008. Perched on a hillside, every view looks out across the vast savannah, and onward to Mt. Kilimanjaro. No two suites or villas are the same, but what is consistent is the attention to detail, the comfortable yet utterly luxurious décor and the tradition of greatness. Regarded as one of the most attractive lodges in East Africa, Ol Donyo Wuas is a place to call home for as long as possible.
