Ride Overview

Ride like you are in “Out of Africa” with magic that is only found on the plains and in the foothills of the Serengeti. One of the most special rides offered and the epitome of the best of an African safari with all the comforts of a luxury lodge. Gallop the plains with the herds then enjoy sundowners on the veranda, truly a magical experience.

Our fully custom Ol Malo Nomad program offers riders and non riders an oasis for adventure, relaxation and privacy in abundance. Crafted for 2-4 riders, this tailor made expedition offers amazing exploration of mountains, lakes, painted valleys, deserts and some of Kenya’s best kept secrets – including the chance to fall asleep to the sounds of the native animals.

Ol Malo is a privately owned family ranch and game sanctuary in the wild Northern Laikipia district. It’s the heartland of the Samburu tribe. Our Ol Malo Nomad program is a tented safari that uses a helicopter, a team of camels and the sure-footed horses onsite along with ancient tribal knowledge to transport you even deeper into this magical country.

Fishing, hiking, helicopter rides are all available to non riders. Itineraries are bespoke for each reservation to individual interests. Safaris are arranged for a minimum of 2 riders and a maximum of 4 riders. Larger groups possible by request.
