Enasoit is a luxurious home from home in the wildlife-rich Laikipia Plateau in Kenya. It's ideal for multi-generational family groups, or a group of friends looking for a stylish private safari camp with its own staff and safari guides.
Explore the private Enasoit Game Sanctuary's 4500 acres all to yourselves, staying at the beautifully appointed Enasoit. The camp is booked on an exclusive basis, accommodates between six and sixteen guests, ideal for families or groups of friends traveling together, looking for an entirely secluded safari experience. Situated on the Laikipia Plateau, with Mount Kenya nearby, you can expect vast sweeping landscapes, rewarding wildlife and thrilling activities, from bush walks to horse riding. Enasoit was originally a family home and still very much retains this atmosphere, with charming hosts Pete and Karen Glover ensuring your every need is attended to.
There are six spacious tented rooms, each with a wide wooden deck, fireplace, lounge chairs and spectacular views. For larger groups, there are two cottages at the pool house, a five minute drive away, which can also be used as rooms.
The lounge area is the heart of the camp, with cosy armchairs to sink in and watch the wildlife roam past, a large deck, dining area and fireplace for cooler evenings. There are family photos here telling the story of real life at Enasoit, and its history. And a collection of books about African wildlife and history to read by the campfire. There's a waterhole and salt-lick in view of the deck, lit at night, providing endless live entertainment!
Other facilities include a heated swimming pool, a massage room overlooking the waterhole, and a media room at the main camp offering broadband internet, mobile phone reception, satellite TV and DVDs.
Six tented rooms at the main Enasoit, and a further two detached cottages at the pool house to accommodate larger groups. Each of the tented rooms are vast and stylish, with a mix of canvas walls and roofs, thatch roof and wooden floors. These rooms have a fireplace with comfy armchairs, a private veranda, comfy beds and en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and hot pressure showers.
Children of all ages are welcome, and children under the age of 5 years stay free. There are no specific child facilities here (play room, kids pool etc.) but the team are very accommodating to families with youngsters of all ages. Parents should be aware that the camp is not fenced, and wildlife can and does roam through the property.
As you'll be the only guests here, each day is very much planned around your group's interests and time frames. Take your pick from game drives and night drives, bush walks with knowledgeable rangers, bush picnics and sundowners in the most scenic locations and bird-watching drives in the cedar forests. Horse-riding is also possible and is a wonderful way to experience Laikipia's wild terrain and wildlife. And if this all sounds too energetic, you can simply unwind at the pool watching the world go by, or indulge in a spa treatment or massage if you prefer.
At an additional cost and subject to availability (we suggest pre booking if these are of interest), Enasoit also offers helicopter flights for a scenic tour to wherever you choose - perhaps over the flamingos on the Rift Valley lakes, or a trip fly-fishing on one of Mount Kenya's lakes. Another wonderful option which guests find really rewarding is the "Thinking Man's Safari", where the Enasoit team invites a local expert speaker to spend a day or just an evening with your group - whether it's a zoologist, rock art specialist, local financier, politician or elephant behavioural scientist - whatever your interests are, the camp can source a local expert to discuss and debate with, offering a unique insight into their specialist topic.
