Kenya

Deloraine House

PLAN MY TRIP

Majestically set on the lower slopes of the Landlanl Mountains, Deloraine House offers not only luxury accommodations but a unique historical experience in this 1920s-colonial farmhouse.

Built in the 1920’s by Lord Francis Scott, the house is a prime example of charming colonial architecture in Kenya. Now owned by the Voorspuy family, elegant accommodations at the farm now consist of three large double rooms and two extra rooms for families with shared bathrooms in the beautiful, main stone house. Plus, there are three double rooms available in the cottage adjacent to the house. The double rooms come with their own en suite bathroom. The upper floor bedrooms in the main house enjoy their own private balconies overlooking the lawns and well-manicured gardens.

A farm house with a glamorous past, Deloraine House is situated on a 3.500-acre farm on the western edge of the Great Rift Valley. It sits on the lower slopes of Landlanl Mountain, an extinct volcano now covered in rich forest and bamboo fed by the fertile soil. It conveniently lays just forty-five minutes away from Lake Nakuru National Park. An area of diverse flora and fauna, it is most known for its flamingoes. Though it also is home to fifty-six different species of mammals including lion, leopard, white rhino, and buffaloes. With nearly 450 species of bird life, it’s an ideal spot for bird watchers.

There are many exciting activities offered at the house. But what the Voorspuy family and Offbeat Safaris is famous for are the horses. With over sixty horses at the farm, there are a variety of equestrian activities available from horse riding, hacking, cross country, and polo, the sport of kings, on a full-sized pitch. A ride around the farm or nearby mountains provides amazing views of the stunning Rift Valley. Whereas, an outing through the mountains, takes riders into the residence of adorable black and white colobus monkeys. In addition, guided day trips are conducted to Lake Nakuru, Lake Bogoria and/or Lake Baringo, allowing guests to take in the rich game life found around the water.

The main farmhouse is reminiscent of a Scottish Highlands manor house, a place where the royals came to visit. It houses a spacious drawing room and large dining room. Plus, there are two wide verandas that overlook the lush gardens. Meals can be served at any of these areas for either dining in an elegant setting indoors or under the divine beauty of the nature and the stars. A large swimming pool invites guests to cool off and relax after a stimulating horse ride or tour of the lakes. There is even a croquet lawn and a tennis court for a little competitive fun.
