Despite its scattered mosaic of farms and cattle ranches, it is essentially still a wildlife refuge supporting huge numbers of game. Stretching from the slopes of Mount Kenya to the rim of the Great Rift Valley, the Laikipia Plateau is an untouched natural haven where abundant wildlife wanders through spectacular scenery. Vast open plains in the shadow of the snow-capped silhouette of Mount Kenya create a tranquil and secluded setting, where game drives encounter abundant wildlife with not another vehicle in sight.
Two rivers, the Ewaso Ng’iro and Ewasa Narok run through the area, attracting the second largest population of elephant in Kenya. A wild yet romantic haven, Laikipia shelters not only the Big Five but a variety of rare and endangered species, including African wild dog, Grevy’s zebra and the semi-aquatic sitatunga antelope.
