Ol Jogi: On the Other End of the World but Still, Just Like Home

There’s nothing more mysterious and exciting than a website – nay, a destination – that offers little to no details about its purpose, its premise and its promise. In place of wordy descriptions and maps that point directly to its latitude and longitude, Ol Jogi allows a running photo stream to do all its talking. And if you look closely enough, you can hear it, loud and clear.

Sensationalized as your own “private Kenyan bush retreat”, the Ol Jogi retreat is just 45 minutes outside Nairobi, but you’ve got to enlist the help of a private jet to get you there. The locale is as elusive as the Loch Ness Monsters: look away and poof, it’s gone.

Tucked away on 58,000 acres of pristine and private nature, with unbelievable views of Mt. Kenya, the ranch-like bungalows are all yours – that is, of course, if you don’t mind waking up to the sounds of lions wailing or jaguars yelping at the taste of freshly killed prey. But once you’ve gotten past all that nature, the possibilities and the amenities of the gorgeous retreat are hard to say no to: massages at any hour, morning horseback rides through the lush greenery, belaying down centuries-old caves and mountains, lounging by shared and private pools. The estate comes with everything you could ever want or even think of: shared spaces when you want to connect with others and ample room for meditation and privacy when you need to disconnect from the world around you.

It’s like walking into a dream you didn’t yet know you were having. Except at Ol Joli, dreams come true… every time.
