Feel at home in the African wilderness at the exclusive Ol Malo Lodge. This safari property sits on the northern edge of the Laikipia plateau with a rugged escarpment as its neighbor.

Property Details

Mixing the comforts of home with natural elements is what makes Ol Malo a wonderful choice. In this untamed wilderness the rhythms of nature dictate the daily pace. Welcomed by little comforts, it won’t take long for guests to settle in to the slower life.

Each of the four cottages include en-suite bathrooms and private verandas. Natural materials are used to create a cozy home that honors the wild surrounds. Slated pathways link the wood cottages. The snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya glisten in the distance. Large windows bring the outside in, framing the ever-changing landscape. Brooding clouds announce an impending rain, rainbows are a welcome sight, and the sun casts a gentle glow on the plains as it settles in for the evening.

Duck into the dining and sitting rooms to cool off, while a fireplace keeps you toasty on chillier evenings. Take a look down below to the watering hole to see the elephants that have come by to drink, as impalas and giraffes wander past. Make your own splash in the infinity pool at Ol Malo.

Samburu guides lead you on a nature walk and point out the smaller inhabitants like the leopard tortoise, elephant shrew, rhino beetle, and buffalo weaver. The flora in the area is also a source of food and medicine, nature’s remedies that the guides will point out as you explore.

Beyond the wilds near Ol Malo, visit with the locals to see how the Samburu women craft their beading, or visit young students in the school. The people welcome guests with open arms and want to share the magic of their Kenyan wilderness.

Experience the night life of the wilderness and thrilling nocturnal game drives. Star gaze in the tree house or go fly camping at Ol Malo Nomad for a sleep out under the stars.
