Ololo Safari Lodge 5*
Situated on the banks of the Mbagathi River on the southern border of Nairobi National Park, Ololo Safari Lodge offers the comforts of home and superb service.
Although the lodge is only a 45-minute drive through the park from Nairobi airport, its secluded location belies the fact that it is in a capital city. It is set in a working 20-acre farm which means it offers wonderfully fresh produce which in turn means delicious meals.
Wildlife is right on the doorstep and you can enjoy breathtaking views over the national park, to the Ngong Hills with a sundowner in hand. You may wish to cool down and relax in the pool, enjoy a safari into the park, take a tour of the Ololo Farm, or perhaps one of the numerous excursions available in Nairobi.

There is a large lounge with an open fireplace and comfortable seating and a fully-stocked bar, plus a cozy library. The swimming pool with sun loungers is the perfect place to cool down or catch some sun, and you can even have a relaxing massage.
