Authentic Tented Camp

 

Laikipia Wilderness is an authentic, classic safari camp in the highlands of Kenya.

We offer a huge range of activities providing an adventurous experience for those who wish to do more than just look at Africa through a window. We would like to share one of the most beautiful corners of northern Kenya with you, and we welcome families as well as adults.

Abundance Of Wildlife

 

You will see wildlife on foot, by day and night, sleep under the stars, swim in rivers and eat beneath shady acacia trees after long mornings exploring. Afternoon drives and walks to beautiful places where you can stop and sit for a bit and wait for things to come to you.

The True Wilderness

 

The freedom of this area means you can discover Africa in a more connected way than just witnessing it out of a moving vehicle. Explore rocky outcrops, walk along the river that carves it way through this part of Laikipia with an experienced guide. Venture through valleys and on top of escarpments with endless views of wilderness. Stop and listen and watch for a while.

Wildlife

 

Laikipia is home to the highest diversity of mammals in Africa. It is wild, and so are they. It is not a national park, but a series of private conservancies and ranches and these are largely unfenced. The whole area spans nearly a million acres and Laikipia is beautiful, and very unique. It is also home to threatened species of mammals, and unique mammals only found in Northern Kenya. Grevy’s zebra, Reticulated giraffe, Beisa oryx, zorilla, striped hyena, aardwolf, wild dog, and even a melanistic black leopard are all some of the unusual species you can find in this corner of Laikipia.

We have large permanent herds of elephants all year round, lions, leopards, spotted hyena, common and Grevy’s zebra, warthog, hippo in the river, buffalo, and many different antelope species. Over 350 different species of birds have been recorded and our guides are highly trained in helping you spot and identify them.
