  • Hi Michele. Just a quick note to say that we had a wonderful holiday, way ahead of our expectations, and constantly said to each other how grateful we were to you for taking so much trouble over it all. Many many thanks.

The Laikipia Region

This huge tract of wilderness, running from Mount Kenya & Samburu in the east to the Great Rift Valley in the west, is made up of a variety of private ranches, game sanctuaries, rhino sanctuaries, wildlife orphanages and community lands. The diverse landscape is dominated by rugged hills, lava plateaus and rocky escarpments that give way to the semi-arid savannahs of the north.

Some areas offer first-class game-viewing, such as the Ol Pejeta and Lewa Downs conservancies, whilst others offer much more of a wilderness experience. The scenery is stunning throughout, and a Laikipia safari will generally offer very exclusive experiences and high levels of personal hosting.

One great asset to the region is the variety of activities available, and across the Laikipia it is possible to undertake camel safaris and walking trails, horse-riding safaris, general game-viewing by vehicle including night drives, lion and wild dog radio tracking, scenic helicopter flights, as well as coming into contact with local Maasai and Samburu peoples, and their community projects (the Il’Ngwesi and Tassia lodges are fine examples of tourism benefitting the local communities). The Laikipia is a perfect destination for a family safari holiday.
