NAIROBI, Kenya—Bush and Beyond, specialists in East African safaris, is announcing that one of their premier properties, ol Donyo Lodge in Kenya, was the first property in Kenya ever to be accredited as Relais & Châteaux member. The acceptance into this prestigious association was announced at a spectacular ceremony in Italy this week.
This Relais & Châteaux membership highlights the quality and mutual ethos of the lodge. The Relais & Châteaux 5C’s ethos of Calm, Charm, Character, Courtesy and Cuisine personifies the experiences at ol Donyo Lodge. In addition, this Bush and Beyond property adds a further two C’s into the mix in the form of their underlying Conservation and Community ethics.
The epitome of working with communities to their benefit from conservation tourism is ol Donyo Lodge.
Ol Donyo Lodge has 7 cottages, 5 that have their own swimming pools, that are located on the slopes of the Chyulu Hills in 275,000 acres of Maasai-owned land in southern Kenya.
This is quintessential Africa with Mount Kilimanjaro as an ever-present backdrop, wildlife-studded plains and acacia forests below offering the opportunity for numerous low-impact activities including day and night game drives, horseback safaris, mountain biking and guided walking safaris.
Guests at ol Donyo Lodge can also meet with authentic Maasai villagers, or spend the day in an open air hide watching some of the world’s largest tusker elephants up close, or sleep under the stars from their rooftop star-bed waking to see Kilimanjaro illuminated at dawn.
