The all new Olarro Eco Lodge
Olarro Lodge in Kenya is an eco luxury hotel created by the famous ethical designer Anthony Russell and takes in an interesting flair of contemporary style with tribal influences from the Maasai.
Olarro Lodge is a small, eco sanctuary in the Loita Hills Massif, South Western Kenya, designed by Anthony Russell – famed not only for his sensitive, ethical and ecological credentials, but also for his insightful ability to create a modern, luxury safari den that ties sophisticated elegance to nature and brings home the ethnic soul of the Savannah wilderness.
Olarro is situated within its own 7,000 acres private conservancy, surrounded by 150,000 acres of Maji Moto Group Ranch, which is owned by the local Maasai people. The Lodge offers a private wilderness, with rolling hills of bush-land, savannah valleys and spreading acacias trees.
The nature inspired, softly rounded white and ocher sand walls play host to a cosy, earthy palette of oatmeal, khaki and taupe. A generous peppering of exotic, handcrafted tribal sculptures and elementary symbols of the indigenous Maasai people, tie originality and cultural richness.
The accommodation faces westwards looking out over the rolling hills of the Mara ecosystem and consists of two zones, the main Olarro has seven cottages and the little Olarro offer complete privacy as a self contained lodge.
A conservational safari experience that is authentic, exhilarating, close to Mother Nature and rooted, perfect for adventure & chill aficionados alike seeking African soul.
Access to the Olarro Lodge is a a 35 minutes helicopter flight from Nairobi or alternatively a short flight via the Siana airstrip and then a 90 minutes transfer. The most picturesque is to take the wonderful 3 hours drive along the stunning Great Rift Valley.
