Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Olomayiana is a private self-catering bush camp. It was set up as our second home and so has great unlimited internet for those that want to work away as well as peace and tranquillity if you're looking for an escape from the City. The five bedrooms are either en-suite tents or en-suite cottages and are spread out throughout the camp. There is a pool, horses, game watching. You won't be bored. Our friendly staff will do all the cleaning, food prep/re-heating and washing-up.

The space
Olomayiana is located in the Maparasha Hills on the way to Amboseli National Park. The Maparasha hills are on a migration corridor as, during the dry season, there is insufficient grazing to support Amboseli's wildlife population. Take a look in our wildlife book to see what has passed through the farm, and please do add the game you come across during your stay. Entries include porcupine, aardvark, leopard, kudu, lion, zebra, eland, buffalo, impala, monkeys, wild dogs, elephant and baboons as well as a host of different birds.

Mary and Emily will come each day to clean the rooms and wash-up. The kitchen is large and well-equipped and a social space. There are two solar fridge/freezers (ice made by the sun!), a gas oven and hob. There is also a gas bbq, safari oven, and a charcoal pizza oven in the outdoor kitchen - with a seating area and 'Big Bertha' our large chiminea. There is a large charcoal cooler which is perfect for vegetables and other foods you want to keep cool (if you don't have enough fridge space). We have a lot of cheeky monkeys so please don't leave food out as they will help themselves!!!

We have invested in great internet which supports several people on video calls at the same time and its unlimited. We are popular with those that want to work remotely. All power is solar (so no hairdryers or electric kettles!); the water is safe to drink coming from our own borehole, and water is also heated by solar power. We have good sunshine hours so it's generally hot, but late night showers can mean it needs a couple of hours in the morning to heat up again. We can heat water by fire for a bath (in the Glass Cottage).

The pool is a short walk from the main campsite. The 2 cottage bedrooms and 3 tent bedrooms are spread out to allow privacy. There is a 5-minute walk to a purpose-built sundowner spot with views of the whole valley or you can take a 20-minute walk to pride rock. There are a lot of cut paths for walks on our property. Alternatively, take a ride through the Bush on one of our horses.

Where you’ll be

Bisil, Kajiado, Kenya

Sit and watch the wildlife, go for walks, groom the horses and donkeys, collect eggs from our chickens, go horse riding, have a badminton match, play ping pong, take a swim, enjoy the stunning views. As well as the wildlife, and nearby trips to Amboseli National Park, you can walk further afield - our neighbours are very welcoming but please be respectful, and seek permission to go on their land.

You can buy vegetables and basics in Bisel, the nearest supermarket is in Kajiado which is a 35-minute drive. There should be some eggs and veggies available for you to use.

I have been traveller all my life and get itchy feet if I am in one place for too long. I love the outdoors and enjoy splitting my time between Ireland and Kenya.

If you think the staff did a good job, please leave them a tip, it helps them feel appreciated for their hard work.
