Olepangi farm is yours to explore and make your own. Whether you are with us to completely relax and unwind or to enjoy each day to the full on horseback, safari or exploring the neighbouring community, our team are here to delight and enhance your stay at every stage. Find your favourite spaces for different times of day.
The Pool and Pool House
Our latest addition to the farm is our spectacular Pool and Pool House with open spaces to relax, looking across to the endless views of the wildlife conservancy opposite. Perfect for a quiet breakfast, then soaking up the sun around the pool before gathering around the bar or the big green egg bbq for lunch. In the early evening, the fire is lit and guests enjoy Chef Jospeh’s bitings with evening cocktails before joining a communal table for dinner or a more private, fine dining experience. The choices are all yours.
The Party House
Our guests have the run of the farm and our ‘Party House’ is a sensational space with soaring makuti-thatched ceiling, again furnished with our personal collection of antique furniture, tribal textiles, oriental rugs and all kinds of interesting objets d’art collected from our travels around the world. Guests find a quiet escape in the sitting room with a book from our eclectic library or to enjoy afternoon tea or even join afternoon yoga on the deck. In the evening, the fire is lit and guests gather to enjoy drinks before dinner in the dining room.
Down by the River
In the heat of the day, there are plenty of spots to find a shady corner. One of our favourites, is under the ancient Strangler Fig tree (Ficus Thiongi, a sacred tree in Kikuyu culture) down by the Ngishishi river that runs along the north boundary of the farm. This is a lovely spot for afternoon tea in dappled light or a quiet drink whilst nestled in to a bean bag chair listening to sounds of river and the wind in the trees. Or why not take up a game of croquet. Old fashioned fun at its best.
In the Garden
Kenya is well known for it's incredible flower and vegetable production. The Laikipia is at the heart of this production as the soil is so rich and climate perfectly temperate for growing flowers and vegetables. Join our team in the vegetable and flower garden or simply explore by yourself. The bees will be busy collecting pollen for our honey and you are welcome to pick what you like, fresh from the soil.
