GUIDE ON OL DONYO LODGE IN KENYA
Ol Donyo Lodge is a premier, boutique accommodation for escapaders who want a glamorous and distinct safari in Kenya with AfricanMecca. Set within the 275,000-acre Mbirikani Group Ranch in the western foothills of Chyulu Hills, the lodge offers you a luxurious base for all of your game activities in Chyulu National Park and its private conservancy. With no set schedule, you simply tell your guide how you would like to spend your days, and they graciously exceed your travel expectations. A flexible, exploratory tour of Chyulu Hills means that you see the fauna that interest you the most, and you also have excellent opportunities to photograph the scenery to your liking, such as the quintessential image of elephant set against a backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro. The wilderness of the park and conservancy is unrivaled, and remnants of a rich volcanic history slice into the earth. Giraffes, buffalos, zebras, wildebeests and other grazing mammals are always within sight, and tucked within the grasses, lions, cheetahs, leopards and other carnivores await their favorite prey. The lodge is beautifully designed to blend perfectly with nature, and every chic convenience is tastefully integrated into the guest accommodations. Romance and adventure abound, from the moment you first walk up the wild stone steps of the lodge until you drift off into the tranquility of sleep amidst the sounds of the African bush. Your authentic holiday in East Africa at Ol Donyo helps support the Great Plains Conservation program that diligently works to protect Africa's most majestic animal -- the lion.
Guest numbers are small at Ol Donyo Lodge, as only 10 spacious suites in six distinct villas are available. Each is individually appointed with thatch, native wood, African art and other organic materials. Your guest room is absolutely heavenly, featuring a lounge, "star bed" and full bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers (read more on where else to stay in Chyulu Hills). A private veranda and rooftop terrace give you an intimate space to gaze at the stars or watch the activity on the plains, and most of the suites have private pools (except two). The comforts of the four-bed private villas are excellent options for families and small groups, and your optional private chef prepares delectable meals to fuel your high-energy trip in the Chyulu Hills. Imagine having splendid breakfasts on the plains in the shade of an acacia tree before joining your guide for a morning game drive. Lunch awaits on the outdoor veranda, and once your belly is filled with the many edible delights, you return to your room for a rejuvenating nap or take a swim in the infinity pool. Aromatic tea or coffee in the afternoon awakens your body, and your guide stands ready for a second game drive or nature walk in the conservancy. Mingling with other AfricanMecca guests over sunset cocktails is a very special way to make new, lifelong friends that share your passion for phenomenal vacations in Kenya, and the delightful conversations continue during dinner and well into the night. Other services and activities that may interest you are guided mountain bike and horseback safaris, cultural visits to Maasai villages, guided tracking excursions, visits to the open-air hide for wildlife viewing and optional in-room massages.

Jambo Altaf, Many thanks for a brilliant holiday. Your choice of tented accommodation at the two Tsavos and Amboseli was superb, we didn't have a favourite. We would recommend AfricanMecca to anyone.
