Ol Malo House, Laikipia, Kenya

You could see wildlife in abundance, without even leaving the luxury of Ol Malo House. But that would missing the point.

From the shaded terrace of your traditionally-thatched rondavel you could watch eagles soaring in circles high above the Uaso Nyiro River. Or you could saunter to the edge of the plateau and watch the wildlife – Ol Malo means ‘place of greater kudu’ – visiting the watering hole and salt lick spread out before you. 

It’s a tempting idea – Ol Malo does hold all the creature comforts and provide fantastic views over the countryside towards Mount Kenya – but you’d miss the overnight leopard watches, the game drives, the night camps, the camel safaris, the bush breakfasts…
