Kenya Laikipia Ol Malo Lodge family safari
Ol Malo Lodge
This memorable lodge is set right on the edge of the Laikipia Plateau, on a rock escarpment.

Ol Malo was set up by the Francombe family in partnership with the local Samburu people, and their lives intertwine to this day. The Francombes are pleased to share their family home with visitors and you can either stay in the main house, or in a separate family house in the grounds of the lodge – Ol Malo House.

The House has 6 double rooms, and is only offered to two groups, or, exclusively to one family/group. As Ol Malo is a family-run operation with children of their own, they are in an exceptionally good position to be able to make your holiday exactly what you want it to be. There is no shortage of wonders to discover here.

The decor is understated and in complete harmony with the surrounding environment – tones of rust, copper, orange and charcoal blend in with the local wood used for much of the furniture, and the large rocks amongst which the lodge sits. 

There is a wealth of activities to take part in, such as game drives, walks by the river or further afield, mountain bike trips, camel treks, and much else besides. Alternatively, just laze by the infinity pool and soak up some sunshine and the expansive views.

There are no timetables – you set the pace. As such, Ol Malo truly is an oasis for family bonding, and we can’t recommend it highly enough if this is one of the aims for your time in Kenya.
