Olerai House is set amidst a green oasis on the shores of Lake Naivasha; it's a welcoming change from the dusty plains for weary travellers during or after their safaris. Olerai House offers relaxing Lake Naivasha accommodation all year round.
The property is owned by Oria and Iain Douglas Hamilton, well known for their work with Africa's Elephant. While staying at Olerai House you may wander through the sanctuary to Sirocco House, their home, to share some of their stories. Here you will experience true Kenyan hospitality in elegant surroundings.
Olerai House lies in the heart of a private game sanctuary. The surrounding plains and woodlands abound with wild animals and birds. Guests will be able to observe the Zebra and antelope gathering to drink at a central waterhole near the house with Giraffe nibbling leaves from trees.
The view of the grass plains from the terracotta patio at this Lake Naivasha accommodation is striking. The red terracotta of the patio, the green of the lawn, and the amber of the plains show the beauty and harmony of the African palette.
Lined with an archway of Jacaranda Trees, planted by Oria's father in the 1930s, the Jacaranda Boulevard is the perfect place to take a leisurely stroll. When in bloom in April and October, the brilliant blue-violet flowers of the trees create a spectacular site.
