Explore Africa with Ololo

authentic | sustainable | tailor made 

Our Story 

In 2007, the Chapman family went on the African Safari of a lifetime. Little did they know that two years later they would uproot their lives in Australia to purchase and convert an old family home into a safari lodge on the edge of Nairobi National Park, Kenya. Over the years the family has fallen in love with the people, culture and wildlife of this beautiful continent. Ololo Safaris is their way of sharing this passion with you, using travel to have a positive impact on the people and environment that we hope to enjoy for generations to come. Most safaris start and finish at the family lodge, where you will then explore some of the most unique and untouched places of the continent. 

Ololo Safaris is their dream of creating the most sustainable, most personalised safari company in the world.

Travel done very, very differently. 


Family Owned & Operated

When you first arrive you'll stay at our family lodge, run by Joanna & Craig Chapman. You'll feel welcomed into our little piece of paradise.

Eco Lodges

You stay at boutique lodges and camps handpicked by us, that care for the planet. 


Tree Planting

We plant trees with our partner schools to both offset the emissions from your trip, and to educate youth on the importance of protecting our planet. 


Personalised Safaris

Because you'll be staying with us and those we've formed long-standing relationships with also, you'll end up paying the same - or even less - than if you organised the trip yourself. A true win-win.
