Set on the foothills of Mt Kenya, Olepangi provides a beautiful, tranquil space for our guests to re-connect with nature, with themselves and the special people in their life. The Olepangi community is one of warmth; an embrace into a world where the day-to-day busy-ness of life can be forgotten. Rural and remote: the perfect place to be right now.
The farm is the result of a deep-rooted desire of Elizabeth Loker and her late husband Clinton Lucy, to turn an area of dry, unfertile land into a sustainable farm. Using only organic practices (helped by our horses!) Olepangi opened in 2014 with what is now an ever changing garden, highly productive 1.5-acre vegetable patch and a small but efficient dairy herd. Food makes a house a home and every meal at Olepangi consists of our own produce whilst ensuring all our other ingredients are of the best quality, sourced from our local community.
Totalling 120-acres, the farm has astonishing views of Mt Kenya, the second highest mountain in Africa at more than 17,000 feet. With so much space to enjoy we have developed a number of activities on the farm for our guests including horse riding, croquet, a variety of walking trails through the area's natural beauty and into the community where our very own Mr Kariuki will introduce you to the culture and traditional ways of life. Back in The Party House, there is a roaring fire in the evenings with books and game for our guests to enjoy. Our Gin Tasting seems to go down well too!
Whilst being in our own beautiful remote area, we are only 45 minutes from Nanuyki and are surrounded by some of Kenyas most celebrated areas of natural beauty and diverse wildlife reserves. A stay at Olepangi is not the same if you do not build in time to visit some of them! From the game rich Ol Pejeta Game Reserve to the blue pools and waterfalls of the Ngare Ndare forest reserve, you'll be spoiled for choice. Though, it's true, the favourite activity by far . . . is the sit back, relax and "do nothing" option.
Elizabeth is thrilled to share this piece of paradise with you and, for those that knew him, to help keep Clinton's spark alive.
