Laikipia, it’s so wild and raw and offers so much freedom to walk, ride or game drive whilst on safari. 

The Laikipia Plateau stretches from Mount Kenya to the rim of the Great Rift Valley – it not only boasts one of the largest elephant population in Kenya, but also is a stronghold of the endangered black and white rhino. Many of the ranches are cattle farms, but for many years ranchers have also gone to great lengths to protect wildlife, and so the game here is abundant. Laikipia is the only part of Kenya in which wildlife numbers have actually increased in the last 20 years.


See the rhino on Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, which has pioneered rhino conservation in Kenya, before heading off into the wilderness on a riding safari – after this you can fish, track wild dog, bird shoot, or simply relax from the luxury of your lodge, Laikipia really does have a huge amount on offer, and all in the comfort of completely private ranches. Ol Pejeta Conservancy boasts excellent game viewing on the vast flat plains, with rhino and the cats making their presence felt.
