Ol Donyo Wuass
Arguably the country’s most upsale safari lodge, this property (run by superstar guide Richard Bonham) has the beautiful Chyulu Hills for a backdrop. The cottages are designed with huge bedroom windows to show off the panorama of the plains, and each also has a very comfortable lounge area. If you’re struggling to think of a novel place to eat dinner, the staff are happy to take you on an adventure, and the menu of activities is extensive.
A recent development in geological terms, these green slopes form one of the country’s least known National Parks, and house Leviathan – the world’s longest lava tube. Fast flowing underground rivers pop up to form springs and the surrounds are among the most scenic in Kenya.
