Laikipia National Park Safaris

Discover Laikipia

Kenya’s Hidden Safari Gem

Located in the central highlands of Kenya, the vast Laikipia Plateau extends from Mount Kenya in the east to the Rift Valley in the west. Second in size only to Tsavo National Park, Laikipia covers an area of around 9,500 square kilometers of truly wild country.

Laikipia Plateau is fast gaining recognition as a top Kenya safari destination. Its incredible density of wildlife is second only to that found in the Masai Mara, and the plateau is home to a number of rare and endangered species, including black rhino, Grevy’s zebra, wild dog, and sitatunga. The appeal of Laikipia safaris lies in the absence of large crowds of tourists and the lack of the usual stringent national park rules and regulations. This means visitors can enjoy a wider range of exceptional wildlife-viewing activities, such as walking safaris, camel rides, and horse riding.

Originally made up of privately owned cattle ranches, Laikipia is now a patchwork of land that is almost entirely privately or communally owned, either by farmers/ranchers or by the local Maasai and Samburu communities. The landowners have come together to create a sprawling conservation area, with most of the private ranches operating as private game reserves.

Because Laikipia is largely privately owned, the usual National Park regulations do not apply here, allowing visitors to experience safari activities that offer a far more intimate encounter with the Kenyan wilderness. Venture into the heart of Kenya’s central highlands where the vast Laikipia Plateau unfolds from the shadows of Mount Kenya to the edges of the Great Rift Valley. This expansive wilderness, second only in size to Tsavo, is a sanctuary for an incredible density of wildlife, including rare and endangered species like the black rhino and Grevy’s zebra.

Laikipia’s unique landscape, a mosaic of private and communal lands, forms a pioneering conservation area that offers an authentic safari experience, far removed from the crowds. Here, the adventure goes beyond the game drive, with Laikipia safaris offering walking safaris, camel treks, and horseback excursions that plunge you into the heart of Kenya’s untamed beauty.
