Laikipia Wildlife Area

Laikipia, Kenya
Laikipia lies in the northern part of Kenya and is a wild sparsely populated area with a number of large private ranches. The ranches manage the wildlife and have created their own private reserves under the umbrella of the Laikipia Wildlife forum. Laikipia has become a major wildlife conservation programme and breeding sanctuary for Rhinoceros. Laikipia hosts the highest diversity of large mammals in Kenya and the big five will be found. The area is vast, quiet and a contrast to the busier national parks with a number of luxury lodges to stay in.

Being privately managed there is more freedom for tourism operators to offer adventure based activities along with game viewing. The main entry towns are Nanyuki, Baringo, Eldoret or Isiolo but most guest fly direct into the ranches on private charters or on scheduled flights to Lewa Downs. Accommodation is available in Laikipia at the ranches
and many luxurious lodges.
