Why choose Ololo Safaris?
We are very different to your typical African safari company. Whilst many other companies act as an 'agent' between you and the destination, we have our own safari lodge, our own team of qualified guides, vehicles and a greater understanding of the reality on the ground, because we live here. This means that we are able to tailor your African experience to suit your unique travel preferences - if you dream something extraordinary, we can usually make it happen!
Upon arriving you'll be staying at our family owned and operated safari lodge, designed and converted by us from an original homestead. You'll meet our family who run the lodge. Joanna 'Mama' is the manager, designer and has helped create the recipes for most of the meals you'll enjoy. Much of the furniture at Ololo was also designed by Joanna, and built on site! Craig, her husband, who has a long standing background in agriculture in Australia, manages the farm at Ololo with George one of the three sons, who has studied Regenerative Agriculture in Australia and the UK. Most of the food on your plate comes from the now commercial farm, fresh from 'paddock to plate'.
After staying at Ololo, you will head off on safari to our favourite destinations around Kenya, usually off the beaten track. You will have the opportunity to stay at carefully handpicked lodges and camps, which actively contribute to the long-term sustainability of habitat restoration, wildlife conservation, and local development.
Ololo Safaris is committed to fostering positive social, economic and environmental impacts in our local community. To achieve this, Ololo Safaris contributes 5% of profits from each trip to support the work of The Ololo Foundation. Ensuring the positive impacts of your travel are maximized where it's needed most.
