Ol Malo Lodge
Ol Malo is a privately-owned game sanctuary on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River in Kenya’s wild and beautiful North Eastern Province – 5000 acres of spectacular bush country overlooked by Mount Kenya and teeming with the elusive antelope from which the land takes its name. The major activity here is taking game drives in the vast sanctuary where most species of animals are found. The game drives are conducted by an experienced driver and guide to ensure that you see all there is to see. Guided nature walks are also conducted by experienced Samburu guides who will happily impart their knowledge of nature and animals as you walk. Horse riding, camel riding, mountain biking or running with a Samburu warrior are some of the other activities to be sampled here.
