Lolldaiga House, Laikipia

Escape the noise and bustle of modern life at this secluded property in the Lolldaiga Hills. A tranquil spot where the views stretch across the African bush to the frosted peaks of Mt Kenya.

Once a private family home, Lolldaiga House has since opened its doors to visitors looking to explore the Lolldaiga Hills Ranch in Laikipia. The design of the property is reminiscent of an old settler home, complete with six elegantly furnished rooms with wide French windows. Staff, whilst friendly and efficient, are unobtrusive and allows for a real sense of privacy. Choose to be hosted or take the house entirely to yourself with a driver/guide on hand to organise any activities on the ranch.

The ranch itself is also a wildlife conservancy and consists of 50,000 acres of pristine wilderness where you’ll find cedar forests, rolling hills, archaeological sites and a thriving population of wildlife. Head out on foot, horseback and guided game drives in search of dik-diks, elephants, leopards, giraffes, buffalo and antelope. Return to Lolldaiga House for a swim in the pool or curl up with a book by the fireplace in the cosy sitting room.
