A large plateau made up of tribal lands and private conservancies, Laikipia is one of the few areas in Africa where wildlife numbers are actually increasing. Located on the equator in the Rift Valley Province most of the land is privately owned.

Some great partnerships have been formed between the local communities and private owners and the area is firmly on the tourism map.  The Big 5 are protected here and the area has a huge elephant population and is home to half of Kenya’s Black Rhino population. There are some beautiful lodges run by Cheli and Peacock, one of our preferred suppliers.
