This is a truly unique property that sets the standards for outrageous design and opulent luxury whilst matching the majestic splendour of the natural surroundings. The stone built individually designed cottages play host to 14 guests with seven double rooms whilst the main house serves are a base for mealtimes and socialising, equipped with spa and gym facilities as well as a cinema room and multiple lounges. Constructed from timber, stone and thatch, all of the buildings blend beautifully into the landscape and the décor reflects Africa with beautifully hand-crafted furniture with incredibly authentic antique treasures.
The dining experience at Ol Jogi is exquisite with the resident French chef having worked at the property for decades with his own private gardens growing fresh ingredients. Lunches are an informal affair with inventive salads and meats whilst dinner is more sophisticated in grandeur. Surprise bush lunch and dinners will be put on throughout your stay where you can feast on gourmet meals overlooking the breath-taking landscapes.
This private conservancy is home to impressive wildlife, including the Big Five and the endangered African wild dogs and black rhinos. During your stay you will be free to explore the great plains whenever and however you so please via foot, jeep, or horseback accompanied by expert guides and rangers. Between game excursions to your own private landscape head down to the glorious pool hidden in tropical jungle plants to cool off and relax or if you fancy a more energetic activity, head to the tennis or squash court or use the gym facilities.
