ol Donyo Lodge

Chyulu Hills, Kenya

Part of the Kenya Safari & African Safari Collection

ol Donyo Lodge is in the heart of the 275,000 acre Mbirikani Group Ranch, located on the slopes of the Chyulu Hills National Park between the Amboseli and Tsavo West National Parks in south east Kenya.

Its location is unrivalled with full views of Mount Kilimanjaro and in the path of seasonal elephant migrations. It is a lodge rich in history, passion and conservation. ol Donyo Lodge’s founder Richard Bonham had often flown over this spectacular landscape but one day in the 1980s he was moved to land his Cessna on the open plains and meet the local Maasai.

That was only the first of many meetings, before the birth of a pioneering community conservation tourism project. The concept was simple: Richard brings guests to this remote group ranch to participate in safaris, and the Maasai shares the benefits. But nothing in Africa is that simple, really. And so began a life-long relationship with the Maasai, the wildlife and the game ranch.
