Otherwise drive down the Magadi Road on your way to Ongata Rongai, turn first left off the tarmac (signboarded to Nazarene University & Masai Lodge). Then just keep going to the end of the murram road (6 km) until you reach Masai Lodge. The turn off to Silole Villa & Silole Cottage is on the right immediately before the Masai Lodge Gate. If coming by public transport, as soon as you get off the matatu/bus there are very nice and reasonable cab drivers and bodas who can get you to Silole
