Ol Malo Lodge Highlights

Ol Malo is a beautiful lodge set in the heart of the Laikipia Plateau, which runs from the foothills of Mt Kenya to the edge of the Great Rift Valley. The main lodge has breath-taking views and has four wonderful cottages, each with a separate bathroom, living area and private veranda.

The 5,000-acre ranch and game sanctuary lies along the Ewaso Nyiro River on the edge of the Laikipia Plateau.
