It has perhaps the most spectacular view in all of Kenya: From Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge, a casual viewer can see Kilimanjaro, the continent's loftiest peak, stretching a full 100 miles from end to end. Beneath it, elephants lumber through the grasslands; in the other direction, tropical mist forests lie beyond the Chyolo Hills, lava outcroppings studded with succulents.

In business for over 20 years, the lodge was completely revamped in 2008. As part of a new initiative by Great Plains

Ol Donyo Wuas Lodge is in the heart of the Mbirikani Maasai Group Ranch, located on the slopes of the Chyulu Hills National Park between Amboseli and Tsavo West National Parks in southeast Kenya. Its location is unrivaled—full views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and in the path of traditional wildlife migration routes. It is a lodge rich in history, passion and conservation.

The 20-bed lodge (inclusive of the four bed private bush home) was rebuilt and redesigned in 2008. Perched on a hillside, every view looks out across the vast savannah, and onward to Mt. Kilimanjaro. No two suites or villas are the same, but what is consistent is the attention to detail, the comfortable yet utterly luxurious décor and the tradition of greatness. Regarded as one of the most attractive lodges in East Africa, Ol Donyo Wuas is a place to call home for as long as possible.

Special care has been taken in every aspect of the lodge. There is no dearth of activities—from culture to wildlife to tracking to horseback riding to mountain biking—Ol Donyo Wuas is a holistic experience.
