Villa Gorilla - Self Catered Book

Villa Gorilla is a private two double-bedroom cottage set within Olepangi Farm. Self catered (full board available) with a lovely terrace and sitting room overlooking a 36,000-acre wildlife conservancy - spot the elephants!! Perfectly situated for day trips, to ride a horse or to relax in nature after a massage, curl up with a good book by the river or an afternoon putting pen to paper at our writer's perch.

"Heaven on earth!"
Tastefully decorated, yet fun and quirky . . . perfect for a short get-away and ideal for long-term stays to escape dull and grey weather in others parts of the world.

Two equally sized double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a kitchen and sitting room overlooking the terrace with sun beds and little cosy corners for your morning coffee listening to the sounds of the river below. And, at many times of the year take time to spot the wildlife, including elephants and all the plains game across the valley.

Villa Gorilla is available on a catered or self-catered basis. Prices quoted are self-catered and include daily house keeping. Please enquire about catered rates.

Set in the stunning Laikipia plateau region of northern Kenya, home to 80% of Kenya's wildlife outside the national parks and reserves. Villa Gorilla borders millions of acres of wildlife conservancies with beautiful views in all directions. This area is considered by many to be the most beautiful in the whole of Kenya, with breath-taking scenery and abundant wildlife and best of all, very few tourists due to its historic isolation. The farm is the perfect base from which to explore the whole region. Climb Mt Kenya, take a day trip into Samburu National Park or over to Ol Pejeta, visit the canopy walk in Ngare Ndare Forest and swim in the blue mountain pools. We also offer day rides (at additional charge) from the farm on one of our well-schooled and responsive safari horses, some suitable for nervous riders and some with a bit more bounce ready for the odd jump on the farm. 3-4 hour rides available in to the adjacent conservancy for experienced riders. An extraordinary experience to ride amongst the elephants and plain's game.

Villa Gorilla is a sanctuary of peace and sophistication, ideal for honeymooners and where many in the past have come to reconnect with their own creative impulses due to the quiet charm of the property. The terrain, atmosphere and activities do not suit every age.

Please also talk to us about long-term stays in other accommodation on the farm. We frequently have guests from around the world who come and stay for weeks and months . . . writers, painters, world travellers . . . we are an easy place "to be" . . . peaceful and quiet, yet there is always something happening on the farm that everyone can partake in . . . learn to ride a horse, get involved in the community, teach at the local school, plant trees, interacting with our international artists-in-residence . . . endless opportunities. Come as a guest and leave as a friend.

Guest access
You will be able to access the 120 acres of Olepangi Farm. The only area that will be off limits is the Party House of the main lodge and the river area just below it. If you are a guest of Villa Gorilla, it is possible to have one-off meals in the main lodge at extra, but reasonable rates.

Other things to note
Olepangi Farm is famous for its horses. If you're a keen rider, let us know. We've got some great community rides and access to the neighbouring conservancy for experienced riders. We also offer a community walk with our neighbour Mr Kariuki who will give insight to social history of the area. He's a bit of legend and very popular with guests.
