Camel Rides

There is also the chance to learn about hunting with spears and you can try your hand at spear throwing.

Guided Walks

Africa is not only about the Big Five – it's about the Little Five too. The guides are experts in finding the smaller things of interest – spiders, insects, harvester ants, flowers and plants which makes for a Kenya safari with a twist.

Camping Under the Stars

For the more adventurous and those who wish to leave the comfort of Ol Malo, why not spend the night under the stars? Listen to local stories by a roaring campfire, learn about the stars in the African sky and fall asleep to the sounds of the wild – this is an opportunity not to be missed.

Camel Rides

This fantastic hut lies just by a waterhole which is visited by different types of animals. Dinner and drinks will be served under the stars. Fitted with cosy beds it can be an exciting place to spend the night and you never know who could wake you up in the morning.

Mountain Biking

The hilly terrain around Ol Malo is perfect for mountain bike lovers. Bikes are available for use on a daily basis and guests will be shown the best routes depending on their mountain bike experience.

Game Spotting

Game is wild and unused to human company, which makes it all the more exciting when tracking the animals by foot, 4WD vehicle, camel or horse while on your Kenya safari.

Childrens Safari

Upon arrival at Ol Malo Lodge, each child will receive a gift pack. This will include a safari journal, small gift and postcards to friends. The safari journal can be used to identify the animals and birds, insects and plants, seen on their Kenya safari.
