Journey Details

DAY 1-3 Ol Malo Conservancy

Fringing the northern edge of the Laikipia plateau, Ol Malo is a privately-owned game sanctuary in Kenya’s wild and beautiful northern reaches. Spanning over 200 hectares the Ol Malo Conservancy is home to a wide range of wildlife and borders the tribal heartlands of the nomadic Samburu people. This wild playground offers visitors an exclusive experience in a remote and unspoilt natural setting. Visitors can look forward to exploring the pristine wilderness, view an awe-inspiring sunrise, soak up landscapes crowned by the snow-capped peak of Mt. Kenya – the highest mountain in Kenya and the second-highest in Africa. Other highlights include journeying to the Suguta Valley by helicopter, Samburu Village visits, a Samburu Market visit, bird watching, fishing, horse riding, as well as camel and jeep safaris.

Where you will stay: Ol Malo Lodge

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.

Mutuma and the team at Designer Safari could not have made the planning of this safari easier for us. The pricing and included aspects of the trip were clear and presented upfront; the communication was transparent and continous; and the chosen safari spot, &Beyond Kichwa Tembo was perfect. I couldn't recommend this team enough!
