Best Places To Stay In The Chyulu Hills; Safari Lodges

Chyulu Hills is a stunning park which feels very remote and wild which means you can enjoy the scenery without seeing a vehicle all day. Although very picturesque, it is not a big game area. The lions, elephants, giraffes and zebras who roam here are few and far between, but they are undisturbed. Therefore, this park is a destination for those who appreciate wilderness over big game spotting and predator action. 

Ol Donyo

Set in the Chyulu Hills, to the west of Tsavo, Ol Donya Wuas has long featured in Kenyan safari itineraries as a stunning location and lodge. However, as with plenty of Kenyan lodges they started to trade on their name rather than the overall experience provided and so really dropped off the map for us. With their joining of the Great Plains Conservation Group in 2008, the lodge has now had a full re-fit and is very much back to its best. The private concession that stretches as far as the eye can see is the ultimate place to spend a few days horse riding or game viewing…or even relaxing!
