Your time at Olerai House is yours to do with absolutely as you please. On offer are gentle walks amongst the herds of wild animals in the sanctuary or energetic hikes in the nearby hills. We can arrange a boat trip across Lake Naivasha that ends with a gourmet picnic on an island full of wild animals. You could spend the day hiking up and around the crater of an extinct Rift Valley volcano, or relax in the drowsy afternoon heat by our swimming pool. The sanctuary is a bird watcher’s delight, and a charming opportunity for children to meet and pet the farm animals – the pigs love having their tummies scratched! Or you can simply curl up in the warm breeze beneath the shade of a widespread fig tree, and read to your heart’s content.

ORIA’S ORGANIC GARDEN
Nearly all of the food we use at Olerai House is grown or raised on a small section of land set aside on the Sanctuary, where Oria has established two large organic gardens that are now expertly managed by a staff of five. We really encourage you to come to have a look, to smell the fresh herbs, help pick some bitter oranges to make marmalade, crunch on a carrot fresh from the ground, or meet our ducks, pigs and red hens. We are deeply conscious of ensuring our livestock’s quality of life, so all animals are pasture-raised and free to roam.
