Activities and Excursions at Olerai House
During your stay at Olerai House you will learn about the uses of different plants, go on wildlife excursions, relax or partake in the many activities on offer.
Each day of your Kenya vacation opens with a new adventure. Early morning or evening bush walks along well-travelled Elephant paths, collecting medicinal plants and honey with a Samburu warrior is a must on your Kenya safari. At times one can witness the great river crossings of camels and cattle, fire making and Samburu ceremonies.
Guests can choose to be as active or relaxed as they like on their Kenya safari tour. There are lovely spots in the garden to curl up with a good book or relax on the huge day bed under the flame tree or flop down by the cushioned logs.
Excursions can be organised by car or plane to Lake Nakuru National Park with its Rhino, the spectacular Wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara or the Chyulu Hills with Mount Kilimanjaro in sight, can also be organised. Trips to Hell's Gate National Park will offer possible sightings of Coke's Hartebeest, Leopard, Giraffe and eagles and vultures that breed on the cliffs.
A delightful boat trip to Crescent Island Sanctuary stops en route at a Hippo pool where hundreds of Buffalo and Hippo wallow in the mud. At Crescent Island, guests spend the morning walking with Zebra, Waterbuck, Giraffe and all kinds of gazelle. A gourmet picnic is served on the lake edge where Giraffe turn to stare as you sip a chilled Chardonnay.
Climb aboard the colourful Musical African Gondola. All you need to do is lean back against plush pillows, relax, and experience the brilliance of Lake Naivasha. The Olerai House musician will play haunting tunes on his flute or strum romantic songs on a 'chomonge,' a hand-made lyre. Surrounding you is peace, a cool breeze, and gigantic clouds streaked red by the setting sun.
This Kenyan lodge is the ideal destination for an intimate wedding function, in the freedom of the wildlife sanctuary. Culinary delight and friendly staff will make your special function unforgettable, whether it's a wedding, birthday party or a corporate function.
