Hermès china, Baccarat crystal, a French chef, an impressive wine cellar, linens from Paris and museum worthy art but rather than being on the Côte d’Azur you are at Ol Jogi, an ultra luxurious private wildlife conservancy in Kenya.

With the dramatic backdrop of Mount Kenya, the varied landscapes of Ol Jogi are lush with wildlife. Extremely rare black rhinos wander the plains, giraffes nibble leaves from tall trees, prides of lions bask in the sun as groups of zebras graze the grassy savanna. Here elephants, rhino, zebras, giraffes, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hippos, gazelle, primates and hundreds of bird species populate this magical eco-system that is Ol Jogi.

 

Originally conceived as a rarefied private estate for a globetrotting French family, Ol Jogi, which is probably the most luxurious safari lodge in all of Africa, has the  unexpected amenities of a resort sized pool, tennis court, a spa complex with gym and hammam, a media room, billiards room and multiple elegant living areas in the main house.

Best of all are the sprawling bedroom cottages with oversized beds, elaborate deluxe bathrooms, private living areas and verandas with scenic views.

 

Ol Jogi now strives to be the leading wildlife conservancy in Africa. Enormous efforts have been made to protect the highly endangered black rhino, the Grevy’s zebra and other endangered species which inhabit Ol Jogi’s 58,000 acres. A team of over 130 game wardens guard the property from poachers 24 hours a day. In addition they operate a large scale veterinary facility and have a program to rescue orphaned animals until they can be returned to the wild. All this along with land management to optimize conditions for the wildlife puts them at the forefront of conservation in Africa. For the guests it is rewarding to know that all income from the hospitality side of Ol Jogi goes toward the conservation efforts.

 

For the guests at Ol Jogi it is the ultimate African adventure. Offered as exclusive use, this is how Africa was meant to be experienced, no other tourists competing to view the animals, no minivans intruding on the serenity, just you and the amazing wildlife and the impressive landscapes. Guests can experience the vastness of Ol Jogi on private game drives, guided bush walks (even at night), on horseback, by small airplane and by helicopter. In the evening after sundowners on the veranda, guests can take a tunnel to a blind next to the watering hole for up close animal viewing followed by a sophisticated dinner in the formal dining room or by candlelight in the bush. These highly personalized experiences make Ol Jogi the world’s most unique safari destination.
