A Laikipia Safari For the Free-Spirited & Unconventional
scroll down to explore
Running from the rugged slopes of Mount Kenya is the dramatic Laikipia region. Comprised mostly of privately-owned ranches which have been combined by local communities to form vast conservancies, here you’ll find free ranging wildlife including lion, leopards and elephants. Renowned among them is Lewa Conservancy, part of the Mount Kenya World Heritage Site, which plays a critical role in sustaining endangered rhino, Grevy’s zebra, and Sitatunga.
Laikipia’s sparsely populated and wide open terrain lends itself perfectly to a remote and unconventional safari experience and is the perfect playground for visitors looking to feel the ground beneath their feet, walk in the wild, and spend time with the Samburu and Maasai people who call it home.
Top 5 Things to do in Liakipia
1. Visit the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, home to the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, for a chance to pet and feed these incredible and endangered animals.
2. Hike to the world famous Thomson’s Falls a 243 foot scenic waterfall on the Ewaso Ng’iro river.
3. Mountain Biking is an excellent choice for the free-spirited adventurer, offering a unique way to explore Laikipia’s varied terrain and stunning flora and fauna.
4. River Rafting, for those who dare, allows visitors to experience rafting sections of the Ewaso Ng’iro and Ng’are Narok Rivers in an inflatable raft.
