Olohoro Onyore

Hi there, i trust you’ve been well and keeping safe during these difficult times. It’s really been a while since i last sat down and left you something here to read am not sure i remember how i used to do it but i’ ll give it a try, i can’t be that bad, can i? 😄

I don’t know about you but i had missed traveling big time and as we all know the sector has been hit hard by this Covid era, And as we try to adjust to the knew normal we all have our concerns. Personally if you had asked me back in March how soon i’ d travel when the cessation was lifted i’ d have told you as soon as the following day. That was a mind that so badly needed to escape the walls of a place it had been confided to for a long time. With time i developed some fears that have taken me quite sometime to shake off and indulge in what i love most. And funny enough my first trip wasn’t to any of the destinations i had in mind back in March, again, fears.

Stepping out last weekend really helped me a lot. You really can’t know what to expect with traveling now until you do it. It’s like a baby taking its first step. Is it a risk? Yes it is, but so is any other day am not in my house. I was able to a little bit face my fears and that’s a step am glad i took. It also helped that i traveled to a destination not so far away from my county of residence, that’s the much i was comfortable with for a start.

 This past weekend champagne ridge opened its doors for us to this luxury self-catering retreat that offered us a slice of its countryside sanctuary.  Olohoro Onyore is sublimely set on a cliff in Champagne ridge roughly 30kms south off Nairobi central business district, one of the regions finest holiday destinations, with unspoilt landscape views that extend as far as the eye can see. The property is along Magadi road via Rongai and Kiserian. From kiserian at Corner baridi take a left and around 12kms along this road you’ll find Olohoro Onyore.

Nothing beats a moment on these swing beds as you soak in the views.

Hugging a prime cliffside position overlooking the beautiful expanse of the riftvalley the property features: floor-to-ceiling glass pocket windows that blur the boundary between inside and out filling the living area and bedrooms with natural light,an open plan kitchen, a wraparound deck that serves as the dining area on one side and a barbecue and entertainment/ relaxing area on the other and not a soul to disturb the birds. Off the deck is the fire place.The house infuses simple settings with stylish, spacious interiors, promising an immersive break that’s so much more than just a holiday.

Ahead from the relaxation area is a pathway that leads to another room. I mentioned that the main house accomodates 6. There is a first unit that accommodates 2,in this unit there is another room that accommodates 2 and the pathway from here ahead leads to another room that still offers magnificent views from the bed. This happened to be my room of course😄. Opposite the relaxation area is the fire place that am realizing right now i didn’t capture on camera🤭

When i said the relaxation and barbecue area offered great views, this was it. The entire deck offers great views though.

Those games will come in handy as there aren’t much activities you can engage in if you aren’t staying long.
