Schedule flights from Nairobi Wilson to Nanyuki Airstrip take about 35 minutes followed by 30 minutes transfer to Olepangi Farm.

Olepangi Farm is located at the foothills of Mount Kenya, an authentic farmstead in Timau.

Speke Cottage Olepangi Farm

The Speke Cottage has two beautiful wrought iron single beds with charming linen carefully selected for each bed. A lovely antique chest of draws sits in the room along with original paintings by Kenya-based artist Lavinia Grant whose “naive” style of painting wildlife is well-known in Kenya and beyond.

The bathroom is fitted with a shower and comes with beautiful organic soap, shampoo, and conditioner handmade in Kenya. This cottage shares a balcony with the Burton cottage, it is a lovely spot to take in the views and enjoy the birdlife.

Olepangi Farm has a beautiful new pool and pool house with two spa treatment rooms, a gym, a huge sunken fireplace, an eating and bar area, and sunbathing deck. The guests have the run of the farm – in particular the ‘Party House’, with its soaring makuti-thatched ceiling, which houses our dining room and bar, drawing room, and library.

In the evenings, guests gather on the terrace to watch the sun go down – it’s a lovely place to make new friends – or just put your feet up, relax, reflect and enjoy the view. The farm has been known to have the odd pajama party or even cocktail-making competition

Olepangi Farmstead Activities Include Swimming, massages, horse riding, community walks, cow milking, yoga, gathering fresh organic produce from our garden, bread making, village visits croquet, gin tastings, and the favorite option “do nothing.” Further afield, the beautiful Laikipia region is ideal for hiking, horse riding, and game viewing.
