Laikipia straddles the equator, lying between the ice-capped peaks of Mt. Kenya, the arid lowlands of Samburu and dazzling Lake Baringo. The region’s appeal is its startling contrasts; in wildlife, landscape, people, and climate. It is transversed by the Ewaso Nyiro and Ewaso Narok rivers.
The uniqueness of this region is not only due to its wildlife and spectacular scenery but also because of its unique partnerships.
Considered the gateway to Kenya’s wild Northern Frontier Country, Laikipia’s wild and sparsely populated land is mostly made up of privately owned ranches and community conservancies.
Laikipia is all about the variety of experiences it can offer; it’s not just about game drives and the stunning landscape!
The region offers a wealth of unusual activities.
The wildlife experience here is world–class, offering abundant daily sightings of the Big 4, incredible bird life, stunning landscapes to walk, drive, explore and sleep under the stars.
Camel safaris are an exotic way to explore the bush, and can be single day trips, or multi-day camping experiences.
Mountain biking and horse riding excursions are offered in many places.
Fishing, guided game and nature walks immerse you in the sheer vastness of Laikipia, winding your days with cocktail sundowners or exclusive spa treatments at one of the unique lodges.
