Ol Malo Lodge

Ol Malo Kenya

Feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your back as you get close to wildlife in the pristine bush on horseback safaris at surreal Ol Malo Lodge in the lovely Laikipia Central Highlands of Kenya. Enjoy the thrills of camel rides as you trudge the wilderness on these gentle creatures, offered by a lodge that stands apart as a truly unique Kenya experience, Ol Malo Lodge. 

Combine your camel safari with a stop at a local village for an insight into the Samburu culture then end the day with a helicopter flip over the gorgeous landscape you have chosen for your trip into East Africa. Ol Mayo is the perfect place for an adventure into Laikipia where breath-taking scenery, world-class accommodation, high volumes of wildlife and few visitors enhance its attraction. Seek out half of Kenya’s black and white rhino populations, the second largest elephant concentration in the country, African wild dogs and lions too. 

Take time to enjoy the best of Ol Malo and you will not be disappointed. The magical formula of world-class facilities, personal service and great food will see you coming back time and again. It’s a comfortable ranch style homestead with large rooms decorated with a Samburu flair and crated from natural materials in the area – add to this ranch the Ol Malo Treehouse and Leopard Hide, the Ol Malo Nomad fly camp and you have the winning combination of solid accommodation and delightful tents in nature for the adventurers at heart who want to eat off the fire and be part of nocturnal nature too. 

Ol Malo owners believe in the future of the region – people and wildlife – and have invested their lives to improving conditions for the land and the surrounding communities, the colourful and traditional Samburu. All surrounding landowners work together to conserve the region into prosperity in northern Kenya’s Samburuland

Ol Malo is a sanctuary for both wildlife and livestock, a working farm that shows that domestic and wild animals can thrive in one large habitat – tourists become part of the farm lifestyle, enjoying adventures to see wildlife, livestock management, a real dairy where they get milk and make dairy products, grass fed meat of course, organic vegetables from the earth as well as pure honey from their hives! The ideal escape for children in nature who can run down to the dairy to get their daily milk.



Find the gracious and homely Ol Mayo Lodge in northern Kenya, on the edge of the Laikipia Plateau, on a 5 000 acre ranch and game sanctuary, lovingly managed by the original family and their Samburu colleagues. Ol Malo Lodge is a picture of tranquillity and exceptional beauty, the views going into infinity, in purples, mauves and indigoes as the sun moves across the sky. This stunning lodge in the Central Highlands is nestled into a rugged escarpment on the banks of the UasoNyiro River with commanding vistas across the long-standing lands of Kenya’s northern frontier district. 

Ol Malo Lodge is set in an area teeming with wildlife which include Lion, Cheetah, Gerenuk, Thompson’s gazelle, Elephant, Wild dog, Grevy and Burchell Zebra, Leopard, Giraffe among other game species. A real birder’s paradise, there are over 280 birds found in the area. And the location overlooking a watering hole ensures you all-day game viewing in the comfort of your room. 

Constructed from stone, olive wood, thatch and other local materials and set among the natural curves of the rocky hillside, your Kenya accommodation will be in 1 of 4 well-appointed chalets or in the sole-use 3-Bedroomed Ol Malo House.
