Olepangi Farm Guesthouse



Olepangi Farm is a 35 minute drive from Nanyuki which lies on the equator and in the foothills of Mt Kenya, the second largest mountain in Africa at more than 17,000 feet.

The farm is “on the edge” in the sense that it straddles that unique eco-zone where most of the finest roses in the world are supplied to markets of Europe, grown in the wild hinterland of Northern Kenya.  On the farm's northern boundary are guesthouses which look out onto the stunning 36,000-acre Ole Naishu Ranch, a working cattle ranch full of wildlife.  This ranch then in turns connects with millions of acres of bushland including Lolldaiga Hills, Borana, Ol Jogi, Mpala Ranch and so on and so forth.  The property is protected by a low-lying elephant fence.
