Ol Donyo Lodge - Kenya

Ol Donyo Lodge

5 star rating   28 February 2024

Debbie who has been on 16 In The Saddle rides. Cantering in Vast African Spaces | Although I was a repeat rider at Ol Donyo, stable managers change and Laura was new to me. Despite her youth I was impressed with her knowledge of each and every horse and after chatting with me she found my dream horse - Narok. As a "senior" rider, sporting two brand new hips, I wanted security but not boredom and Narok, at 20, delivered. Laura got it just right and I forgot I was so ancient!

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

I missed the usual buffet type lunch that I have enjoyed over previous years, I always thought it added some token socialising, I went with a friend but a solo traveller might feel a little isolated.
