Olepangi Farm, home to GoWild Africa

Olepangi Farm is where we live and host our friends, family and guests. We are a 35 minute drive from Nanyuki, the Equator town. The farm is in the foothills of Mt Kenya, the second largest mountain in Africa at more than 17,000 feet and the perfect location for exploring Laikipia and all it has to offer.

“It’s a home . . . not a commercial lodge and one tangibly senses that warmth and personal care for the guests”

A birds-eye view of Olepangi Farm

We straddle that unique ecozone where most of the finest roses in the world are supplied to markets of Europe, grown in the wild hinterland of Northern Kenya.  Five charming cottages are perched on our northern boundary, looking over the stunning 36,000-acre Ole Naishu Ranch, a working cattle ranch full of wildlife. This ranch connects with millions of acres of bushland including Lolldaiga Hills, Borana, Ol Jogi, Mpala Ranch and so on and so forth.

As you sip a morning coffee or evening sundowner, the wildlife often wander over the hills just across the valley. Our property is protected by a low-lying elephant fence.

Herds of zebra and impala, eland and kongoni, elephant and giraffe… Night falls to the sound of hyena hunting and periodically lion or leopard tell us they’re around as well!

Look north on our farm for stunning, uninterrupted long views to the Lolldaiga Hills and south for sublime views of Kenya’s iconic mountain. On clear days you can even see the full Aberdare mountain range and the Laikipia plains.

We are avid polo players and have a bush polo pitch for afternoon chukkas or lessons. If you’ve never done it, why not give it a try?

The farm has its own organic vegetable garden and we supplement it with vegetables from our local farming neighbours. We also have a nursery for indigenous trees, part of our environmental effort to regenerate the ecology of the area.

Our 120 Acre Farm is blessed with views, a river and some spectacular neighbouring properties.
