Ol Donyo Lodge Ol

Donyo Lodge consists of ten expansive guest suites in six stand-alone villas. No two are the same design – each suite and villa is designed and positioned slightly differently but all have a dramatic view of the plains and Mt. Kilimanjaro in the distance.

The décor is luxurious and opulent, while still retaining the atmosphere and sense of place that is an essential ingredient of an outstanding bush lodge. The design is contemporary and yet traditional.

Each suite has a rooftop “star-bed” accessed from the verandah via a winding stone staircase. The “star-beds” are a fabulous sleep-out option, with utter privacy and all the amenities of the suite just below.

Each suite has a lounge, verandah, indoor and outdoor showers, double washbasins, flush toilet and bath. All but two of the suites have have their own private pool(s).

Also of note:

  • Sensibly, morning game activities do not normally commence until after breakfast (say leave the lodge at 07.15) which makes for more of a holiday than the endurance test of the seemingly obligatory 05.30 rise and on the road at 06.00. Why? Do you really see so much more in that hour between 06.00 and 07.00?
  • Off road game viewing.
  • Optional sleep outs on the roof.
