Ol Malo Nomad

Ol Malo Nomad is a selection of hand-picked camping and travelling adventures beginning or ending in the luxury of Ol Malo. Each trip is tailor made according to the guests’ adventurous spirit, and privately guided by Andrew or Chyulu Francombe.




Ol Malo is incredibly fortunate to have both ancient and modern Nomadic forms of transport available - camels, horses, our feet and (more recently) a helicopter!

Need to Know

The Francombe family are born and bred Kenyans with endless knowledge of the land both on the ground, in the air and on the back of a horse. Working closely with the Samburu Trust and our Samburu neighbours they have the knowledge of ancient wildlife and cattle routes and can travel with the blessings of the elders.


The options are endless but so far the following have been done; • Flown by Helicopter with a lightweight camp and slept in the middle of the Suguta valley at a full moon surrounded by flamingos. • Eco-Transfers; moving between camps to or from Ol Malo both on horseback, supported by a lightweight camp carried on camels, and on foot. • Dropped people in a remote and exciting area where their mobile camp is waiting. Guests have then walked or ridden their way back to Ol Malo over a few days, whilst exploring elephant migration routes and learning from the local Nomads of the area. • In February 2013 we had a group who acclimatized at Ol Malo and then half of them climbed Mt Kenya with Chyulu, while the others fished the Mountain with Andrew. • Endless Helicopter fishing trips - dam, lake and river fishing for Catfish and Tilapia, Turkana for Nile Perch, the Indian Ocean for deep sea fish. • Samburu Trust and Ol Malo Nomad - Horse & Camel treks. Ol Malo Nomad is offering our guests the opportunity to get more involved and support the Samburu eco-system through the Samburu Trust by walking with the Samburu people to secure their land, its wildlife and their shared future. These are the only Horse Safaris in Africa where you live life as a true Nomad in a camp moved entirely by camels.

Wildlife HighlightsWildlife Highlights

Ol Malo is famed for its magnificent heards of elephants, the chance to see the resident pack of wild dog and of course, its namesake, the beautiful Kudu antelope. Many guests enjoy watching the leopard from our specially built hide.


Accommodation can vary according to clients needs - a simple roll mat, a fly camping tent or more substantial mobile safari tents with camp beds, bucket showers and all the comforts for bush living!
