Ol Malo is a privately-owned game sanctuary on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River in Kenya's wild and beautiful North Eastern Province - 5000 acres of spectacular bush country overlooked by Mount Kenya and teeming with the elusive antelope from which the land takes its name. In this majestic setting - on a rock escarpment on the edge of the Laikipia Plateau,bordering the tribal heartlands of the nomadic Samburu people – the Francombe family and their Samburu neighbours have created a home for themselves and a dream destination for the privileged few who seek a glimpse into the true heart of Africa. Near the original family home a comfortable sitting and dining room welcome guests to one of Kenya’s most breathtaking views. Ideal for honeymooners and couples, a maze of slated pathways wind down to four rock and olive wood cottages. Nestled in the cliffs each room has its own veranda and complete privacy, with ensuite bathrooms and the famous Francombe baths. Looking out from cosy cedar post beds, large picture windows frame Mt Kenya and the constantly changing landscape. An infinity pool adds to the beauty as well as the amenity of the lodge. Ice cold drinks and lunch, al fresco, is served at the pool and is a very informal affair, followed by an afternoon by the pool, relaxing or a visit to the Ol Malo shop. Horse riding, camel riding, nature walks, night drives, picnic breakfasts, lunches, river walks, sundowners on the rocks, barbeques in the bush, a visit to the Samburu workshop, the use of a helicopter to get a birds eye view are some of the many activities on-site and offers guests an experience of a life time.
