Deloraine House

Ride Overview

Deloraine House is set in the middle of the 5,000 acre commercial farm at 6,000 ft. on the lower slopes of Londiani Mountain. It has a forest and bamboo shrouded volcano, on the western edge of the Great Rift Valley. The home was built in 1920 by Lord Francis Scott, a prominent early settler, and has to be one of the grandest examples of colonial architecture in the country. The house is run by the family who offer the Masai Mara safaris and serves their home and base. They welcome guests with wonderful hospitality, and it’s a fantastic way to experience more of Kenya following a 7 or 8 night safari. From Deloraine, more riding including polo can be arranged, and day visits to Lake Nakuru or Lake Bogoria.

Accommodations

There are 3 large double rooms with their own bathrooms in the main house with 2 extra rooms for families with shared bathrooms. There are also 3 double rooms with their own bathrooms in the cottage adjacent to the house.
