Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge Activities & Wildlife
Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge rooms are so comfortable and the food so delicious (not to mention the extensive wine list) one might be tempted to just laze around the lodge and the swimming pool, however, the list of activities is so exciting that you won't want to miss a minute.

 

 
Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge - Bush Walks
Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge

 

Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge Day & Night Safaris

Over 7,000 wild animals make their home in and around the environs of Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge and guests can search for them in vehicles, on foot, or by horseback. Not only are the "BIG FIVE" here - rhino, elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo - but also cheetah, the rare fringe-eared oryx, the shy gerenuk, and the lordly giraffe among many others share this magical landscape.

 

It is out on a drive or walk or ride that the exclusivity of Ol Donyo Wuas becomes apparent: you and the few other privileged guests are alone with the animals - no other tourists; no fleets of noisy mini buses are there to disturb the magic of your experiences. Night drives are a feature for those who would like to better opportunity to view the shyer nocturnal wildlife.

 

Amboseli National Park Visits

Activities operate where possible on an all-inclusive tariff where everything at the lodge is included. The exceptions to this are the Amboseli excursion and the Amboseli Park entry fees; horse rides and massages. The Masai villagers will charge individuals for having their photos taken, but the cost of getting there is included in the tariff.

 

Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge Bush Picnics
Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge al fresco lunches on the verandas or candlelit dinners in the dining room are quite wonderful. The lodge also enjoy hosting "Bush Breakfasts" and dinners, not to mention surprise sundowner cocktails or classic English tea in the magnificent and romantic setting of the vast African landscape.

 

Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge Fly Camping
East Africa is classic safari country and it would be a shame for guests to visit Kenya without experiencing a night out under canvas with traditional camp amenities, drinks under the open sky by the fire followed by our superb campfire cuisine.

 

Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge campsites are chosen based on the season, so your camp may be out on the plains or up in the Chyulu hills, and you can choose to get to your fly camp on horseback, by vehicle or the way the explorer's did - on foot. Seduction Rock is a famous overnight spot (and we are led to believe that it always works!)

 

Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge and the Masai Culture
The Masai people are as natural as part of the Mbirikani landscape as the wild animals. A visit to a Masai traditional village is often one of the highlights of a guest's stay and it provides a wonderful insight into Masai culture and their way of life.

 

Day trips to Amboseli National Park
Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge offers full-day excursions to Amboseli National Park. Guests depart Ol Donyo Wuas after breakfast and take a leisurely drive across the plains to the Park. The lodge usually plans to arrive in Amboseli sometime in the mid-morning and aim to leave in the mid-afternoon.

 

This coincides with the time when the lodges are breakfasting and is the traditional safari siesta time when the park and the vehicle density is at its lowest. This also is the time of day when the elephants and wildlife densities around the waterways and marshes are generally at their highest.

 

If you want this activity guaranteed, please ensure that you book the excursions in advance with African Spice Safaris.

 

Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge Massages
Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge offers In-room massages.

 

Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge Mountain Biking
This is a new activity that is carried out on the plains around Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge. Guests bike across the savannahs with an armed guide and enjoy the freedom and exhilaration of these plains and their wildlife.
