Just a 45 minute flight from Nairobi, Ol Jogi is located on the Laikipia Plateau and occupies a stunning 58,000 acre private wildlife conservancy. The diverse landscape comprises open savannah, mountains, rocky hills and acacia scrubland and is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including many endangered and rare species such as eastern black and southern white rhinos, lions, cheetahs and African wild dogs. Ol Jogi strives to provide a protected and secure habitat for all wildlife through conservation programmes and monitoring as well as its own rescue centre and veterinary clinic.
The ultimate luxury bush retreat, Ol Jogi offers sweeping views of Mt. Kenya and private accommodation for up to 22 guests in 7 elaborately furnished and individually designed cottages containing 13 suites in total. The very definition of understated luxury, the cottages feature bespoke furniture, individual dressing rooms, spacious sitting rooms, wood-burning fireplaces, lavish bathrooms and shared verandas overlooking the watering hole below.
The main lodge is a mixture of refined elegance with an array of fine art and sculpture, antiques, tribal art and Eastern African inspired decor. The main communal area is centred around a cosy living room and an expansive terrace where guests can enjoy spectacular views and delicious meals al fresco. A secret tunnel extending from the bar out to a hide by the watering hole allows guests to view wildlife at close proximity.
For those that can tear themselves away from the wildlife, there is a pool complete with cascading waterfall and adjoining spa and steam room. Guests can also relax in the TV room which is equipped with satellite TV and a fully stocked film library. Other facilities include a tennis court, fitness centre, yoga room, Jacuzzi and sauna. A billiards table, table tennis and various board games are also available. Should guests need to catch up on work there is a state-of-the-art office with wireless internet.
At Ol Jogi, guests are encouraged to partake in a range of activities, from game drives and bush walks to horse riding and off-roading. It is also possible to explore Northern Kenya by helicopter for an additional cost.
