Ol Malo Lodge

Location: Laikipia, Kenya Safaris

Ol Malo perches atop the edge of an escarpment that drops 600 meters down to the Laikipia Plateau. The camp is accordingly afforded spectacular views and a swim in the infinity pool feels like swimming on a cloud. Each of the rooms has been carefully pieced together from local stone and wood and the focus is dedicated to the view which can be seen throughout. The communal areas are well organized with meals and afternoon tea served in the main rooms at the top of the lodge.
