The Ol Malo Difference

Ol Malo is  so much more than a safari lodge. At Ol Malo, they specialize in achieving your wildest dreams. Whether this is your first taste of Kenya or your dozenth journey back, they  tailor-make each experience so no two trips are alike. They offer you the reins to live out your own adventure, and will leave flexibility in your itinerary to flow with the rhythm of the day.

The Ol Malo Adventure-Take the Reins

Life at Ol Malo is about experiences. There are no pre-timed game drives or regimented schedules here. They have helicopters, safari cars, mountain bikes, horses, and camels just waiting to take you on an adventure. All activities are tailored to pursue your every whim; whether that be riding alongside zebra and giraffe on horseback, dancing in the dust with Samburu warriors, camping out on the open plains, exploring the Suguta Valley in a doors-off helicopter, or flying alongside flamingos in Lake Logipi.

Accommodation-Lodge,House,Nomad,Hide& Tree House

Perched on the cliffs of the Laikipia Plateau and overlooking a panoramic skyline of untouched valley, Ol Malo is Northern Kenya’s original luxury bush home. The rooms are safari-inspired and made with wood and natural materials from the land, with added Samburu beading flare. The high-ceilings are constructed with woven thatch and natural stone walls. Ol Malo was designed in a luxury ranch style, built by hand with materials of the land as one of the north’s original bush homes. The spacious rooms are safari-inspired with added Samburu beading flare. Ol Malo Nomad, our small lightweight mobile camp, offers private groups the chance to explore the wild on foot, horseback, camel, or in a helicopter. The Ol Malo Treehouse and Leopard Hide are complimentary overnight activities for guests.
