Ol Malo Lodge and Ol Malo House

Ol Malo, ‘place of the Greater Kudu’, is a privately-owned game sanctuary on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River in Kenya's wild and beautiful Liakipia district. The Lodge and House boast a spectacular and dramatic position nestled into a rugged escarpment overlooking beautiful bush country.




Built, owned and managed by the Francombe family, with the help of the Samburu people, Ol Malo has established a reputation for first class service and tireless attention to detail.
