Ol Malo is the place where guests can experience pure Africa. This privately owned ranch and game sanctuary is situated on the northern edge of the Laikipia plateau, giving unrivalled access to the heartland of the African bush and the Samburu tribe.
This stunning and expansive 5000 acre property borders the Waso Nyiro River to the East and Africa’s savannah plains to the West. It is one of Kenya’s most pristine areas of conservation, and guests love being in the middle of it within the comfortable surroundings of stone cottages.
The lodge can be reached by Ol Malo airstrip from Nairobi or Nanyuki. This otherworldly and family friendly place has a reputation for exceeding guests’ expectations. Fly in a helicopter, sleep under the stars, or learn about Samburu life; at Ol Malo, the world is your oyster.
Guests can enjoy a wealth of outdoor activities during their stay. Helicopter rides are a highlight for many guests, while game drives are popular for first timers.
Other wonderfully guided activities, such as horse riding, camel walks, fishing, mountain biking, and ranch work are loved by adults and kids alike.
For a unique experience, guests can learn about Samburu survival skills, try Samburu beading, go on a mobile safari, or sleep under the stars, to name just a few of the activities on offer.
Ol Malo is the birthplace of the Samburu Trust, and guests are invited to explore the efforts of this vital programme which covers over one million acres of Samburuland.
