Ol Malo offers luxury accommodation situated on the northern edge of the Laikipia Plateau. The lodge offers full board accommodation, ideal for family vacations in the Place of the Great Kudud.

Accommodation consists of four exclusive cottages, all individually decorated and with their own private veranda. The lodge itself features a dining room and a large sitting room with a fireplace where guests are welcome to relax and warm up after a game drive in one of our 4X4 vehicles.

The horizon swimming pool provides superb views over the valley, and the lodge also offers a laundry service, gift shop, Internet access and credit card facilities. Electricity is provided by a 240 V generator and runs in the mornings and evening hours.

Horse riding is also one of the best ways to enjoy the wildlife. Here at Ol Malo we have our own horses, and these small, Somali-type ponies are strong and good for trekking. We cater for all riding levels and provide riding hats, riding jodhpurs or chaps, as well as riding boots with mainly Argentinian saddles on the horses.

Other activities at the lodge includes game drives, game walks with experienced guides, camel rides across the plains, mountain biking, cultural visits and swimming. A masseuse can also be arranged on request.

The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille is perched on the flanks of a wooded rock koppie, in the heart of a private conservation area comprising 20,000 acres of grassy hills and deep valleys, heavily wooded with many acacia species and African olives. It is named for Ol Lentille, a huge hill from the top of which an astonishing panorama of Northern Kenya unfolds. The Ol Lentille Conservancy is home to the endangered African wild dog, greater kudu, leopard, striped and spotted hyena and klipspringer, as well as many elephant.

The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille is a collection of four private, full-service, fully staffed houses for the discerning few.

All the houses at Ol Lentille have access to a spectacular horizon swimming pool with lounging ‘pods’ and a library where you may read, write, relax, or chat with fellow guests and hosts. Atop the library is the viewing deck, which features an open fire, a bar and a GPS-controlled telescope to bring the heavens even closer. In addition, great food is tailored to your tastes and served wherever and whenever you want by our chef.

Activities at The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille include day and night game drives, bush walks, horse riding, camel treks, mountain biking, quad bikes, fly camping, spa treatments, boules and croquet, as well as a Maasai craft village.

Lewa House is located in the very heart of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. This small, owner-run lodge offers unique access to all corners of this world-renowned conservation area. Perched on the crest of a hill, Lewa House looks out over a range of ecosystems that make up the protected area and offers excellent access to all aspects of this rich wildlife arena. Through a range of authentic activities, guests are able to unlock and understand what is being achieved here.

The cottage-style rooms are spread out along the hillside, all looking to the expanse of wilderness to the north. There are three family-style rustic cottages, each comprising of two elegantly furnished en-suite rooms and a large shared verandah. The cottages are built with sustainable, ecological principles in mind whilst being exceptionally comfortable and spacious, with wonderful views across the surrounding landscape.

The central area is a large elegant building with an open fireplace at one end where guests can relax during the day and mingle with a drink before dinner, and at the other end is a large family dining table where evening meals are served. There is also a large shaded veranda extending away from the main lodge with a comfortable seating area from which you can enjoy a cool afternoon drink and soak in the very special atmosphere of Lewa House.

Beautiful shaded gardens surround the lodge and breakfast or lunch is often served on the lawn. The lodge also has a large swimming pool which overlooks a waterhole, often providing some of the best game-viewing on Lewa.

Lewa House offers a diverse range of activities, including game drives, game walks, horse riding, camel rides, cultural trips to the local Ngwesi Village, and scenic biplane flights.

Borana is one of East Africa's original fully hosted, family-owned eco-lodge and is located within the vast area of the Ewaso ecosystem on the Laikipia Plateau. With snow-tipped peaks and the glaciers of Mount Kenya to the south and a panorama of mountains and desert to the north, Borana provides an idyllic setting for any African experience. Laikipia is an area of exceptional beauty, enjoying some of Kenya's most prolific wildlife, as well as the highest populations of endangered species in the country.

Accommodation is offered in eight cottages, each unique in style but all comfortable and cosy, with fireplaces and private verandahs. Guests will enjoy views over the Samangua Valley and lake, where elephants love to swim. The sitting and dining rooms are within the main lodge with log fires, rosewood tables and snug sofas, creating the atmosphere for entertaining evenings, while a stunning horizon swimming pool is ideal for relaxing.

Borana is famous for its horse riding adventures, but exploring the surrounding bush in Land Rovers is equally exciting with our intrepid and experienced guides. Sam and Amory lead walks on the ranch, and for the more active, mountain bike rides down the escarpment offer an adrenalin rush. The ranch is also perfect for picnics, sundowners on Pride Rock, the original inspiration for Disney's Lion King, and bush dinners.

Alternatively, a day with Michael Dyer offers the chance to understand the challenge of establishing a balance between wildlife management and cattle ranching. We also recommend a visit to Kisima, where Michael's brothers Martin and Charlie farm roses, sheep and wheat. On your return to the lodge, a relaxing massage is on offer in the comfort and privacy of your room.

Sosian is a 24,000 acre private wildlife conservancy. We pride ourselves on managing a unique blend of tourism, conservation and traditional cattle ranching in Laikipia’s highlands. Sosian’s original ranch house was built in the 1940s by Italian artisans and beautifully restored in recent years to accommodate up to 14 people, while maintaining the welcoming atmosphere of a private home, known now as Sosian Lodge. The lodge features a beautiful rock swimming pool, set beside a soaring open sided thatched roof house spaced with hammocks and comfy day beds, a tennis court, riding manege, and organic vegetable garden. The ranch lies at high altitude, which makes for a perfect climate with no record of malaria.

Seven cottages are dotted throughout the garden, a wonderful haven dominated by verdant greenery and flowers all set against a back drop of Mount Kenya with views for miles over the Laikipia Plateau and true unspoilt Africa. Each cottage lies with its own private verandah and en-suite fully plumbed bathroom.

Sosian's speciality is in providing a totally private game-viewing experience, away from the restrictions of National Park rules. This sense of freedom and exploration means that we can offer action-packed adventures in the surrounding Laikipia wilderness. Trekking, bush walks, riding, camel safaris, game drives, and night-drives all offer a multitude of unique ways to seeing game. The guiding is of the highest standards and complement the huge range of activities available. Sosian also offers specialized walking safaris; exploring the bush and tracking animals during the day on foot and sleeping in a mobile tented camp each night which moves daily to a new location, often based on the course of a perennial or seasonal river.

As well as looking for wildlife, other activities include fishing, archery, tennis, rafting, tubing down the river, and swimming in the rivers after jumping off waterfalls. A visit to a nearby Samburu settlement should not be missed and provides a fascinating insight into traditional pastoral life which has not changed appreciably in hundreds of years. Sosian has an expanding herd of over 600 Boran cattle, including a pedigree breeding herd and small dairy. A tour of the ranching side of Sosian is another fascinating activity not to be missed. Guests can lend a hand with dipping, weighing and vaccinating, and learn about the trials of keeping unfenced cattle in this wild environment full of large predators.

Sosian is well-known for its delicious home cooking, using fresh ingredients from the garden, and its warm and friendly hospitality. There are a variety of wonderful places to eat, including picnics by the river, lunches by the swimming pool and bush dinners around an open fire followed by camping under the stars for the more adventurous.

As well as big herds of elephant, zebra, buffalo, numerous species of antelope, giraffe and hippo, lion, leopard, cheetah and spotted hyenas are also regularly spotted. Sosian is home to some rare and endangered mammal species such as Jackson’s hartebeest, Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, striped hyena and aardwolf. The birdlife is spectacular and large raptors such as Martial eagle, African hawk eagle, and bateleur are resident and often seen.
