Ololo Safari Lodge
Ololo’ is an Australian-owned safari lodge that combines the atmosphere of bush-style living with the full service, amenities and comfort of a luxury city hotel. Our attention to detail, combined with home-style warmth and a high standard of comfort are all hallmarks of the Ololo experience. With our convenient location on the edge of Nairobi National Park, the only national park in the world that borders a busy capital city, we are close to all the main airports yet are a haven situated away from the city’s hustle and bustle.
Perfectly situated on the banks of the Mbagathi River, the southern boundary of Nairobi National Park, Ololo is approximately 45 minutes from Kenya’s international airport and Wilson domestic airport. Guests are able to avoid the notorious Nairobi traffic while being transferred through the unique park setting.
Ololo’s beautiful, established gardens host many of the 500 species of bird life common to the park and four of the ‘Big Five’ are often seen from the lodge’s main terrace and pool deck.
The main house is a traditional colonial farmhouse, tastefully decorated with furniture crafted on site by Ololo’s own skilled carpenters and boasting a large fireplace, wine cellar and adjoining library. The guest rooms offer an eclectic mix of original house suites to tents under thatch and uniquely refurbished horse stables. Guests will enjoy Ololo’s authentic home-style cooking featuring garden greens fresh from our own ‘shambas’ and paddock-to-plate cuisine.
We access the park from our own suspension footbridge. Guests are given 24-hour admission to the park after entering, and Ololo offers game drives as well as excursions to surrounding local attractions.
