Challenging the Maasai Mara National Park as one of the best places to go in Kenya for a safari experience, Laikipia is fast becoming a must-do on an itinerary. With vast open plains and the silhouette of Mount Kenya in the near distance, Laikipia is an untouched natural haven. Laikipia also boasts numerous conservation projects, not only supporting endangered animals, but also local communities.
The area is rich in wildlife and not only is it home to one of the largest elephant populations in East Africa, it is also one of the last refuges for the highly endangered black rhino. Various conservancies in the region house lodges and camps which offer a wealth of activities of which visitors can enjoy during a stay. The largely flat scenery makes it possible for horse riding, camel trips, mountain biking and much more, offering an ideal stay for families and couples alike.
