A LITTLE MORE ABOUT LAIKIPIA
Boasting more endangered mammals than anywhere else in East Africa, the vast Laikipia plateau extends from the lush foothills of snow-capped Mount Kenya to the walls of the Rift Valley. Healthy big cat populations thrive alongside 1000’s of elephants and the unique northern species here including Grevy’s zebra and Sitatunga antelope graze alongside black and white rhinos.
The wildlife is only the start of the adventure as the appeal of Laikipia lies in the opportunity to get out of the vehicle and head out on foot, horse, bike or camel to explore a wildlife reserve the size of Wales. The land itself is divided into exclusive wildlife conservancies, that practice high-yield, low impact tourism so numbers of guests are kept small, allowing the wildlife to thrive in a genuine wilderness, whilst you can enjoy some of the highest levels of service and guiding in the country.
Given the sheer diversity of game, the mix of habitat and the incredible sense of adventure, it is no wonder that the region is incredibly popular for photography safaris and family safaris and those looking for a much more rounded wilderness experience, with the some of the best guides in the country.
