WELCOME TO OL DONYO LODGE
“I sat on the logs that surround the hide at ol Donyo listening to the elephants rumbling nearby. It was almost a meditation and I thought, wait, maybe we should create a meditation and soundtrack that is like this, rather than that canned music you hear when you are having a Great Plains Lifestyle massage! That is when the elephant touched my leg with his trunk!” Dereck reflects on the origins of some of the Great Plains moments.
Wedged between Kenya’s Tsavo and Amboseli National Parks in the heart of the Chyulu Hills, the lodge, honed from the ancient lava rock that spewed out of Kilimanjaro 360,000 years ago, and creates a timelessness that touches everyone who visits us.
