Located at Nairobi National Park, Ololo Lodge boutique hotel is the perfect start for your safari in Kenya. Here you will experience wildlife right on your doorstep while enjoying breathtaking views over the Park.
When you get to go on an amazing Game Drive in the first hour after landing in Kenya you know you have made the right safari choice. Here are 3 other reasons why we will take you to Ololo Lodge when you are in Nairobi!
1 | Your bridge to Wilder Kenya
This is not just any suspension bridge. It is right over the Mbagathi River, at the southern border of the unique Nairobi National Park, in Kenya. Crossing it is giving your first steps into a world away from bustle even while being in one of the world’s busiest cities, 30 minutes away from the centre.
Kenya is magical for many reasons. It hosts the second highest mountain of Africa, beautiful scenic landscapes and wildlife, one of the most important Swahili settlements in East Africa, more than 40 tribes, a beautiful coastline and archipelago, and the world’s only Wildlife Capital. We are talking about Nairobi National Park, home to more than 550 species of birds, lions, leopards, buffaloes and rhinos, among many other animals.
The privileged location of Ololo Lodge at the southern bank of Nairobi National Park allows you to experience wildlife right on your doorstep from your first day in Kenya.
When you are coming to Africa from a long flight you don’t want to spend hours in traffic to get to a city hotel, unless that hotel is in a Nairobi National Park. Because then you get to enjoy your very first Game Drive en-route to the lodge less than an hour after landing!
2 | Uniquely designed rooms
There is nothing like having choices and knowing that no matter what you decide you will get the same level of comfort and deep rest! Ololo Lodge was once a colonial family homestead. The original part of the house now hosts a spacious Terrace Suite with a living area, fireplace and a private terrace; along with a Tower Suite with access to a private rooftop with panoramic views over Nairobi National Park.
Three safari-style tented cottages are privately located along Ololo’s spacious garden, perfect for those who want to jump right away into the real safari experience. All of them have king-size beds and unique decoration.
There are also seven old original stable rooms offering a unique historical insight to the property. Originally built as horse stables, they have been converted to guest rooms and are ideal for largest travelling groups who want to be located closer together. All rooms include egyptian pure cotton bedding linen and towels and are furnished with unique pieces made by Ololo’s long time carpenter.
3 | Panoramic views over Nairobi National Park
With wide open grass plains, the beauty of Nairobi National Park is not to be missed. Ololo Lodge is one of the few places in Nairobi that offer panoramic views over the park and to the famed Ngong Hills in the west. Sit on the terrace next to the swimming pool and relax next to the stunning african wilderness, or enjoy the views from the dinning area or the lounge.
BONUS | Having an incredible restaurant
