Perched on the cliffs of the Laikipia Plateau and overlooking a panoramic skyline of untouched valley, Ol Malo is Northern Kenya’s original luxury bush home. The rooms are safari-inspired and made with wood and natural materials from the land, with added Samburu beading flare. The high-ceilings are constructed with woven thatch and natural stone walls.

Ol Malo NOMAD
OVERNIGHT IN THE BUSH
Take your Kenya expedition one step further with an unforgettable Ol Malo Nomad trek to explore painted valleys, deserts and mountains. Accessing areas by helicopter, a team of camels, sure-footed horses, and Samburu guides with the knowledge of ancient tribes – we invite you to experience some of Kenya’s most untouched wilderness and smile with the wildest of faces. Nomad expeditions can accommodate two to eight people for a minimum of two nights.
Watch the ground fall away as you take flight, becoming a part of the African sky. When you lose your gravity you find your soul. Up here, following your fancy is the only thing to do. See something interesting? You’re in charge, let’s go take a look. For a day (or two or three), let your curiosity guide you through vast wildernesses. Fly through the Great Rift Valley, called the cradle of mankind, and feel your senses tingle. This is what going home feels like; this is what discovering your life all over again feels like. A word of caution: Once you have seen the world from above, it will never feel the same again. This is an exclusive experience and tailored to your wishes.
nomad bush walk
Ol Malo’s Nomad Bush Walks take you into the wild, perhaps further into untamed nature than you have ever been. Escorted by Samburu Warriors and supported by a camel train porting everything needed for camping in comfort, you will forge new paths in the bush every time you go. This fully supported experience is exclusive to Ol Malo guests. Whether you are looking to get your feet wet for just two nights or string together a journey spanning multiple days, Nomad Bush Walk gives “take a walk on the wild side” a whole new meaning.
As sunlight splashes across your face and your heart drums along to the beat of your horses hooves, it will hit that you are living the “Out of Africa” moment you’ve been dreaming of. On a Nomad Horse Safari you will depart from everyday existence and spring headfirst into pure Africa. Canter alongside giraffe and weave between zebra by the sun, and dance by the crackling fire at your private camp by the moon. With camels carrying your mobile camp from valley riverbed to mountain peak, this is the only horse safari of its kind in Africa.
Imagine this: your feet are propped up on the side of a fishing boat, cold beer in hand, line dangling in the water, and not a soul in sight. The helicopter you arrived in is framed in the backdrop, as are the untouched lands of Kenya’s wild North. Perfect serenity. Nomad Fishing brings you face-to-face with your fishing daydreams and, if luck is on your side, with the legendary Jade Sea Giants of Lake Turkana – enormous Nile Perch that can easily weigh over 100 pounds.
“A bit of old-fashioned charm that’s rare in the modern world of glamping and mega-lodges.”
