Olomayiana is a private self-catering bush camp about 90 minutes from Nairobi Airport and 1.5 hours from Amboseli National Park. It's our home, but work means we often have to be in Nairobi, so we offer it out on Airbnb when we are not there. Bedrooms are either en-suite tents or en-suite cottages. There are staff at the camp to help you with cleaning and washing-up.

The space
Olomayiana is located in the Maparasha Hills 75 minutes drive from Nairobi airport and an 45 minutes from the border with Tanzania and 75 minutes from Amboseli National Park overlooked by Mount Kilimanjaro. The Maparasha hills are on a migration corridor for Amboseli National Park. During the dry season, there is insufficient grazing to support Amboseli's wildlife population. As a result, there is migration out of the park as far, and beyond Olomayiana. Take a look in our wildlife book to see what has passed through the farm, and please do add to it should you come across any game (large or small!) during your stay. Entries include porcupine, aardvark, leopard, lion, Zebra, Eland, buffalo, impala, monkeys, elephant and baboons as well as host of different birds.
Mercy will come each day to clean the rooms and wash-up. For extra cost, we can get someone to provide massage, manicures and pedicures at the spa area by the pool but we need a few days notice - you organize and pay them directly.
All power is solar (so no hairdryers or kettles!); the water is safe to drink coming from our own bore hole, and also heated by solar power for showers. We have good sunshine hours so it's generally hot, but late night showers mean it needs a couple of hours in the morning to heat up again.
The kitchen is fully equipped including a solar freezer - 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.
The pool is a short walk from the main camp site. 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 and view the 'cradle of mankind'.

Guest access
Set on 80 acres you can access all parts of the farm and camp - either on foot or on one of our horses (there are extra charges for horse riding at $12 for a 1 to 2 hour hack). Our neighbours are very friendly and you can walk across their land or up into the hills for views as far as Tanzania including Kilimanjaro.

Other things to note
Ideally you need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to access Olomayiana. It can be done in a saloon car but it is bumpy! There are wild animals on the farm and so the owners assume no liability for damage to person or property of visitors from wildlife or accidents. Having said that walking on the paths and around the farm is fairly safe - just be careful if you venture into denser bush. It is a good idea to ask what animals have been around in the previous 24 hours. Our horses sometimes wonder up to the campsite to see what's going on and to see if a carrot might be on offer. They are all friendly but if you're not familiar with horses, please don't walk close behind them where they can't see.

I have been traveller all my life and get itchy feet if I am in one place for too long. I am a married mother of 3 who works full time and likes to be busy. I love the outdoors and Africa is home but I also spend time in Ireland and UK
