Laikipia

Located between Mount Kenya and the Great Rift Valley, Laikipia is home to more than half of Kenya’s black rhinos. The area is an exciting success story of humans and wildlife thriving side by side. Located between Mount Kenya and the Great Rift Valley, Laikipia is home to more than half of Kenya’s black rhinos. The area is an exciting success story of humans and wildlife thriving side by side.
Why Laikipia?
Recent decades have seen wildlife conservancies formed on Laikipia’s tribal land and ranches creating unique partnerships among safari lodges, local communities and the government. The result is a thriving tourism industry which supports the protection of wildlife through anti-poaching initiatives and increased opportunities for cultural connections.

A safari in Laikipia can take many forms – from open vehicle drives both day and night to walking, horseback and even quadbike safaris through the rugged landscapes. On a clear day, you’ll see majestic Mount Kenya dominating the skyline, surrounded by Laikipia’s river-crossed grasslands on which elephants, buffalo, antelope and hyena roam. Rare animal sightings in this special region can include the African wild dog, black leopard, rhino and Grevy’s zebra.
  • See conservation in action as lodges partner with tribal communities.
  • Exclusive, small-scale lodges offering a variety of safari activities.
  • Choose from open vehicles, quad bikes, walking, horse or even camel riding safaris.
  • Home to rare species including rhino and wild dogs.
  • Mountainous landscape of rivers, hills and bush.
  • Cultural experiences with local residents.
