Ololo Lodge is a wonderful place to stay if you require an overnight at the start or end of your trip to Kenya. ‘Ololo’ is an Australian family owned safari lodge, which combines the atmosphere and style of bush living while offering all the convenience and amenities of a city hotel. Staying here is a smart way to maximise holiday time – rather than ‘wasting’ a night at an airport hotel, your transfer can be a safari through the park and you can enjoy wonderful views of the Ngong Hills from your lodge. Ololo is picturesquely positioned on the banks of the Mbagathe River on the southern border of the Nairobi National Park, Set on twenty acres with beautiful established old gardens.
Ololo’s partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service allows full park access. You can be transferred to both international and local airports, avoiding the notorious city traffic and at the same time can experience the delights of one of the worlds more unique national parks. Ololo Lodge is built around a traditional colonial farmhouse that has been carefully restored and extended by the owners. The lodge has become an iconic blend of classic old Africa with a slightly more modern eclectic twist.
