We had heard from others that this is a beautiful lodge and they were right!
The design captures both function and visual beauty that successfully blends tradition with contemporary touches. Our room was outstanding, spacious and magnificently equipped. Even so, nothing compared to the beauty of the surrounding view!
The team are excellent at what they do! Under the watchful and welcoming Annie (the temporary manager while we were there) everything was flawless. She and the team knew that I was not feeling well and saw to it that they did everything possible to ensure I had what I needed and made a speedy recovery. Everyone in the lodge asked how I was feeling – even though I had only told 2 people – so caring! The food was varied, well prepared and beautifully presented – among the top 1 or 2 of lodges we have stayed in in Africa.
The team of Guides at ol Donyo are excellent including James, the guide we had who was passionate about his country, culture and ensuring that we had an opportunity to experience it and grow to love it as he does.
