This weekend, I drove over to Ololo Lodge via the Tuala back route. Ololo is a quiet intimate lodge located on a working farm that brings to life the true meaning of ‘from farm to fork.’ It’s quite an interesting setup really, that has everything from the biggest sweet potatoes I’ve ever seen to organic herbs and vegetables, chicken, geese and a friendly cow named Rejoice. The beef fillet was tender and succulent, while the salads were out of this world! I was transported into tranquility during an evening walk along the pedestrian bridge suspended over the Mbagathi River. I then watched the sun dip into the Ngong Hills from the Tower Room, aptly named for having 360 views of the national park. I waited until the Upperhill skyline came to life, twinkling away in colourful lights. Lazily, I sipped my afternoon tea while watching the buffalo, giraffe, eland, and zebra go by, while the hyrax played on the deck below my feet. I watched a Maasai herds boy shake his fist at a buffalo, sending it on its way. But I suppose what really stood out for me as most memorable was the warmth of the staff. The team comprising of Richard, Stephen, Virginia, Joanna (the owner) and her son, epitomised hospitality. They go over and above to accomodate the wishes of all their guests. I’ll remember this little hideaway for a long time to come.

My stay at Ololo Safari Lodge with my friend was nothing short of amazing! The food was very well cooked, and I particularly loved the farm tour that we had done earlier in the day. Noticing a few things from the organic farm on my dinner plate like the baby lettuce was a nice surprise. Joanna is very warm and welcoming and created an atmosphere of a lovely home, away from home. Her beautiful mood is also felt throughout all her staff who are equally warm, friendly and always ready to help. I foresee myself holding several personal events, day trips and more nights at Ololo Safari Lodge. Everyone deserves the oasis that is Ololo, a welcome break from the normal life routine. Thanks for the pleasant stay Ololo Safari Lodge!

Ololo staff and food are amazing. They use fresh produce grown on their own farm. The outlook is tranquil and perfect for lunch or a stay. It is a short drive from the main NNP gate. Our safari guide was excellent. Despite being surrounded by nature it is unfortunately under the flight path.

We travelled to Kenya from the Toronto area of Ontario, Canada, and it is a long trip. To get our feet under us, we stayed at Ololo for a night before heading into the bush. It is just what we needed! We did the same thing in 2016, and this time it was just as good, even better. Getting game drives from and to the airport is a bonus. Lammie and the staff were only too happy to meet our needs, with grace and humour. The food and drinks were first class, service was exceptional, so we have nothing but good things to say. It was a lovely spot to catch our breath before heading out. Thanks to everyone at Ololo for making our short stay memorable.
