The farm is set on the lower slopes of Londiani Mountain, which is a forest and bamboo shrouded extinct volcano, on the western edge of the Great Rift Valley. It is 45 minutes away from Lake Nakuru National Park in Kenya. The park has plenty of wildlife including lion, leopard and buffalo, but the lakes are particularly famed for its bird diversity including flamingos (greater and lesser).
Deloraine House comprises of 3 large double bedrooms, a large dining room, a drawing room, a hall and veranda. There is also a cottage adjacent to the the house which homes another 3 double bedrooms so there is plenty of space. The grounds are tropical and spacious, with a swimming pool, tennis courts, croquet lawn and well-kept gardens.
The house was built in the 1920’s by a prominent early settler in Kenya, named Lord Francis Scott, so the architecture is colonial and the décor is grand. The rooms are very large and well-appointment, with dark furniture and light fabrics.
Deloraine House offers a huge variety of activities so you could easily spend a couple of nights here. The house is run by the Voorspuy family who are well known for their Offbeat Riding Safaris so of course, horse riding is top of the list (hacking, cross country and polo). Day trips to the lakes (Nakuru, Bogoria and Baringo) are offered and for those who want to spend a morning or afternoon relaxing, there is a swimming pool, tennis court, gardens and a croquet lawn.
