On the Farm
Only 45 minutes from the bustling town of Nanyuki in the heart of the Laikipia Plateau, Olepangi provides a beautiful, tranquil space for our guests to re-connect with nature. Surrounded by giants of wildlife conservation our little farm offers a break from the Big Five and introduces our guests to the natural beat of our farm. Bursting with flowers, one of the latest additions to the farm, our bees, are busy-ing away producing the best honey we have ever taster - so simple, natural and wholesome. Perhaps we are biased!
Our vision from the start was to create a sustainable, organic farm and each year we cannot believe it's natural maturity. Our guests enjoy watching the relaxed daily routine with many guests joining in and giving our team a helping hand. A welcome retreat from busy home lives, picking flowers, milking cows, learning about growing herbs.
Our daily farm life looks a little like this, but, as with most things on a farm in Kenya, it is forever changing! And this is why we all love it and our guests come back time and time again - they are part of our extended family.
MILKING THE COWS
