Olerai Studio, Naivasha
On the shores of Lake Naivasha in a private 300-acre wildlife sanctuary, Olerai Studio is a colourful and cosy private house that sits under the canopy of towering acacia trees, with emerald green lawns stretching down to the lakeshore. Combining nature, adventure and relaxation, Olerai studio makes for a perfect getaway for a family or group of friends. The wildlife sanctuary is teaming with gazelle, giraffe, waterbuck, colobus monkeys and impala and over 150 bird species. At night you can see as many as twenty hippos grazing on the lakeshore.
Olerai Studio accommodates up to 4 guests in two bedrooms, one double and one twin (an extra bed can be added for a child under 16) with a shared bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, fridge, freezer, cutlery and crockery. As well as dining and sitting rooms, the house has a lovely veranda with seating, two garden sunbeds and a barbecue grill, and use of the shared swimming pool located at the main Olerai House Lodge, 3 minutes’ walk from the studio over lush lawns.
Homemade ready cooked meals can be ordered directly from the booking office, together with fresh milk, a basket of organic vegetables, freshly baked bread, scones, brioches and other cakes, produced by the farm. Or if you feel like a delicious lunch with your swim you can book a table at Olerai House Lodge. Clients have called Olerai Studio amazing, and we are sure you’ll agree.
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.
