Ol Malo stands on the last frontier of Northern Kenya, an untamed playground in the heartland of the Samburu tribe that calls to those with wild hearts and adventure in their bones. We specialize in creating the authentic African moments you’ve been dreaming of, from wild helicopter expeditions into the Great Rift Valley to serene relaxation by our infinity pools. At Ol Malo, we have helicopters on our private airstrip, safari cars, mountain bikes, horses, and camels just waiting to take you on an adventure. The three lodging options on our privately-owned family ranch - The House, The Lodge, and Ol Malo Nomad - each offer equal parts comfort and style. The 6-bedroom Ol Malo House and 4-guestroom Ol Malo Lodge were designed as a luxury-style ranch, built by hand with materials of the land as one of the north’s original bush homes. Ol Malo Nomad offers families and groups the chance to engage with nature in a tailor-made way: from exploring by helicopter and fishing vast lakes to trekking on foot, horse or camel with mobile camps into the unknown. Life at Ol Malo is about experiences: soar alongside eagles over our private land and flamingos in Lake Logipi in our helicopters, dance in the dust with Samburu warriors as they singing tales of the past, ride on horseback to watch a family of elephant play in the watering hole, hear the crunch of rock under your camel's feet, and listen to stories of Africa under an Acacia tree whilst munching on food cooked on the flames of an open fire. As third generation Kenyans who have grown up and lived on the land, our family is deeply rooted and committed to our country, it's many cultures, and this beautiful way of life. Guests of the Francombe family have the opportunity to witness Kenya through the eyes and minds of those who know and love the land the most, and learn that there is more to life in Africa than the Big Five.
