Grand Laikipia Plateau

Nestled between the soaring heights of the snow-capped Mount Kenya and the rugged chasms of the Great Rift Valley, the high-lying plains of the Laikipia Plateau are abundant with game, including the Big Five, and offer a breathtakingly beautiful diorama. Stretching from the Great Rift Valley to the magnificent escarpments which descend into the Northern Frontier District, the 5,000 square mile plateau is regarded as one of Africa’s most remarkable conservation success stories. Once covered in cattle farms and ranches, the region has been transformed into an incredible natural wilderness that offers an unforgettable African experience.

Bisected by north-flowing rivers and streams that wind their way lazily into northern Kenya’s largest river, the great Ewaso Nyiro, vast, endless plains of swaying grasslands, strikingly deep gorges, and dense acacia- covered hills create an extraordinary terrain that is home to a plethora of wildlife.

Black rhino, elephant, wild dog, and half of the world’s Grevy’s zebras roam across a rugged patchwork of small-scale farms, private ranches, and wildlife conservancies, where exclusive and luxurious lodges or deluxe safari tented camps cater for wildlife-lovers and safari aficionados. Local Samburu, Ilaikipiak and Mokogodo Maasai communities welcome visitors into their unspoiled world where conservation is key and cool, temperate climes offer year-round comfort.
