Olerai Dairy, Naivasha: 6 Guests
Olerai Dairy is situated on a 300-acre wildlife conservancy on the Naivasha North Lake road. This lovely country barn-house of pale pink bricks offers spacious rooms with big windows, high ceilings and wonderful woodwork. The large open main room of the Dairy is full of sunlight and fresh air, with a fabulous kitchen, dining table and comfortable armchairs by the fireplace, opening out on to a big veranda and garden.
The Dairy offers three lovely bedrooms; two with king-size beds and one twin rooms, and all have brightly coloured bathrooms with shower. An extra bed or baby cot can be added if needed. All bedrooms have lovely soft furnishings and plenty of linen, including feather pillows, as well as hot water bottles and drinking water, tissues, and insect repellent. All bathrooms are stocked with shampoos, conditioners and soaps.
Their wonderful farmhouse kitchen is fully stocked with basic larder supplies; fresh milk, tea, coffee, sugar, oils and vinegars, and detergents are also supplied. An electric heater is provided for the house, should it be needed. There is a housekeeper/cook, as well as an askari (night watchman) to look after you throughout your stay. The housekeeper will clean the house daily and is also available to do laundry, and the estate manager will be happy to help with anything else that you may need.
If you don’t know what happens in Naivasha, you’re missing one of Kenya’s highlights. On the south of Lake Naivasha, you can go horse riding or boating, or venture into Hells Gate National Park and go rock climbing, hiking and cycling. For the super fit, why not take on the climb up Mount Longonot or (for the less fit) go walking on the Crescent Island Conservancy? Alternatively, set the pace a little slower and take the family out to lunch under huge acacia trees at Carnelley’s or The Ranch House Bistro. On the north side of the lake, the Great Rift Valley Club provides golf, tennis and swimming facilities. Once you’re in the area, it’s a short run-up to Elementaita Conservancy and Nakuru National Park. Altogether, Naivasha offers a great collection of activities for everyone, and we have a great collection of houses to make your stay memorable.
