At Loldia House you’ll experience the life of Kenya’s early settlers. Loldia House is an ideal spot to relax, taste the pleasures of Kenyan country life and explore the Great Rift Valley.
Loldia House offers a choice of accommodation either in the old family house or in cottages in the grounds. In the main house, there is one en-suite double room, furnished in the original settler style. Close by is an original guest cottage surrounded by lush flowers, with a further two en-suite rooms. Then there are a further two separate cottages each with two en-suite rooms – both have wonderful views of the gardens and the lake. Up on the hill is the specially built ‘Top Cottage’, which has its own sitting room with open log fire and panoramic views across the lake and two double rooms (both en-suite). The Top Cottage also has a loft room (with separate bathroom). The Top Cottage is only ideal for close friends or family groups traveling together. There is also a newly built infinity pool, set on an outcrop between two age old fig trees with stunning views across the lake.
There are also beautiful views of the dormant volcano, Mount Longonot. Wild animals roam free on the farm and in the evenings hippo munch quietly by the waterside. Loldia House is only a two hour drive from Nairobi and within easy reach of Nairobi’s International Airport. It is a perfect place from which to begin your safari holiday around Kenya. It is also conveniently located for day trips to the famous Lake Nakuru National Park. There are now also daily flights on Governors Aviation direct from Loldia House to the Masai Mara.
