Ol Malo House

Ol Malo is a privately owned family ranch and game sanctuary in Kenya’s wild Northern Laikipia Province, the heartland of the Samburu tribe. Join the Francombe family at their beautiful home in the heart of the African bush for an intimate and highly personal experience of luxury ranch living.

In addition to safari game drives, Ol Malo offers unique activities like helicopter excursions, horseback riding, camel walks, ranch activities, and Samburu cultural interactions.

For accommodating exclusive groups or families, the Francombes have built the 6-bedroom Ol Malo House. The hub of the house is a large, beautiful sitting and dining room with open fireplaces encircled by 3 en-suite double bedrooms. Separate cottages create a further 3 double bedrooms: each private and comfortable cottage has arch windows and doors, en-suite bathrooms, and decor inspired by the area’s wild landscape, local flora, and the life and culture of the Samburu people. A flagstone path leads to a large open area overlooking the infinity pool, fringed by Drasina palms and this incredible land’s wide-open vistas – perfect for al fresco dining. A barbecue area creates a wonderful place in which to end the day under a star-studded African sky.
