Set at the foothills of Mount Kenya, Olepangi Farm is an authentic farmstead in Timau. Set on 120 acres, this family-run lodge offers amazing views over the natural surroundings and has a bar, and includes all meals, wine, beer and evening sundowners. The lodge is hosted by the owners, Elizabeth and Clinton who have developed the farm as a lifelong dream to live in such a paradise on earth.
The beautifully appointed cottages are decorated with rich antique carpets and beds. Each one has a private bathroom and is fitted with a shower and comes with beautiful organic soap, shampoo and conditioner handmade in Kenya. At the farm, guests can enjoy massages, horse riding, community walks, croquet, gin tastings and the favourite option "do nothing." Further afield, the beautiful Laikipia region is ideal for hiking, horse riding and game viewing. Guests can take day trips into the many neighbouring wildlife reserves including Samburu National Park, Ol Pejeta, Lolldaigas, Solio and into Ngare Ndare Forest.
Olepangi Farm wouldn't be possible without the dedication and support from an amazing team. From the staff in the kitchen who make food with care and love, to the housekeepers who make sure your rooms are cozy and comfortable, to the syces who manage and exercise our horses, to student volunteers who help host your stay . . . they all add that little bit of magic that makes the farm a little piece of paradise. And let's not forget the famous dogs, Colonel Lawrence, Zsa Zsa, Ginger and Freddie . . . the farm would simply not be the same without them.
