Ol Donyo Lodge Review

This camp is perched on a hillside, so every suite has great views of the plains, Mt. Kilimanjaro, and the watering holes. No two of the ten large suites in six stand-alone villas are the same. They all have rooftop "star beds," which are accessed from the veranda by a winding stone staircase. They allow you the option of sleeping under the stars but with all the comforts of your suite just below. All but two of the suites have private pools, too. Some villas have four beds each and private sitting rooms and are ideal for families or small groups of friends. Excellent food and friendly, attentive service are the norm. Meals are taken in the centrally positioned dining room with a big open fireplace for those chilly nights. You have the option of camping out for two or three days, with support crew and a mobile tented camp, by foot or horseback.
