Laikipia

Overview

It is practically difficult to talk about Laikipia without mentioning the 2.5 million-acre Laikipia Plateau. Made famous by Kuki Gallman’s ‘I Dreamed of Africa’, this extensive savannah grassland is set against the backdrop of Mount Kenya. Here, you will feast your eyes on a concentration of wildlife only rivalled by the Maasai Mara. You will experience the feeling of seeing the last of a species fighting hard to beat extinction and you will walk where royalty has walked.
