Buckle up for a Bush Breakfast at ol Donyo Lodge, Kenya
Serenely located in the Chyulu Hills, in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, privacy is guaranteed at ol Donyo Lodge in Kenya.

The most exhilarating way to start one’s day at ol Donyo is with breakfast in the bush by horseback! Here, guests will ride through the bush – spotting giraffes and cheetah as they go – before arriving at a delicious breakfast set up, accompanied by birdsong, under the shade of an acacia tree. This breakfast may be far from camp but the team doesn’t leave anything behind, with freshly baked goods, a hot breakfast, and fresh fruit-a-plenty making for a morning to remember!
