Ol-Malo The Perfect Luxury African Safari Lodge In Laikipia Kenya

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

Ol-Malo or 'The Place of the Greater Kudu' the perfect Luxury African Safari Lodge is set in a 5000 acre ranch and game sanctuary along the Uaso Nyiro River, overlooked by the massive snow covered Mount Kenya in the background, and it overlooks the Mukagodo home of the nomadic Ndorobo people.

It consists of four very luxurious guest cottages built out of natural rock with thatched roofs, and a separate living area and dining room, both with fireplaces, necessary in this part of Kenya.

Each cottage has huge windows to enhance the truly wonderful views, as well as overlooking the water hole and salt lick, and the regular wildlife that comes to visit.

All around is the Bush, and there is a beautiful freeform swimming pool which has incredible views of the valley below.

Ol-Malo was built by the Francombes who were both born and raised in Kenya, and they both knew exactly what was required when they built it, and how they wanted it to be.

Game Drives, Bush breakfasts, escorted walks, night game drives, sundowners, hideouts all feature at lodges and camps, and everyone on an in Kenya Safari, and a luxry Africa Safari will have tried some if not all.

Ol-Malo moves to the beat of a different drum altogether because of the vision of the Francombes.

Without apparent effort you will move in Africa time, totally controlled by sunrise and sunset, it will be as if the real world doesn?t exist anymore, and you may find yourself viewing the abundant game from much closer than a safari vehicle. You could be high on a camel, on horseback, or on a mountain bike if you choose.

One thing is certain you will almost certainly see and get close to game that is so protected and undisturbed by human contact, they come to Ol-Malo as a place of security and safety. You will almost certainly view Elephant, Giraffe, Leopard, Lion, Hyena, Common Zebra, and the rare Grevy?s Zebra, more endangered than the Rhino.

At night you will return to perhaps a dusk swim, watching perhaps a herd of Elephant arriving at the waterhole, absolutely memorable cuisine, and perhaps a night in the game hide watching Leopards close up but in total safety.

Ole-Malo is different, very different, and an unmissable place to visit on your in Kenya Safari, and more than that very high on anyone?s list of Luxury African safari destinations..
