In our area we have elephant, leopard, wild dog, cheetah, hyena, zebra and greater kudu to name a few. Elephant numbers have really grown in recent years and some months several thousand sightings are recorded. There are six packs of wild dog (averaging twenty) that traverse the area around the lodge and some months there are between 10 - 20 wild dog sightings in this area. 

Each of the four architect-designed villa echoes a “Voice of Africa” and is positioned to ensure maximum privacy. Bedrooms in all the houses except The Eyrie can be equipped with either a double bed or with twin beds. All have large lounge areas, dining areas and stunning terraces with panoramic views, the larger villas have plunge pools.

  1. The Eyrie, sleeps two people and is a romantic bolthole in an African retro style.

  1. Laikipia is all about the variety of experiences it can offer, it’s not just about game drives and the stunning landscape! You can see real community projects and culture, experience camel trekking, walking safaris, quad biking and mountain biking and wonderful spa treatments to name just some of what we offer. An adventurers’ paradise or just do as little as you like!
  2. You wont see another car from start to finish, you have our private and protected 40,000 acre conservation area which is over three times the size of Manhattan all to yourself! The spectacular landscapes of Laikipia will take your breath away and all your activities are private.
  3. Staying here is importantly a “holiday” and there is downtime to enjoy the numerous unique and special activities that the lodge and Laikipia offer. Your stay is not the normal safari format of game drives every morning and evening and you don’t have the early starts like so many other lodges and therefore leave refreshed and relaxed!
  4. As guests often combine the Mara with Laikipia, where they have been in a car the whole time we often don’t take guests in the vehicles and prefer to do walks in the area to get up close to all the action! We have an incredible number of elephant, and wild dog sightings are very regular. Guided by Samburu and Maasai warriors this is a very special journey into their ancient lands.
  5. Our four villas are spectacular and regarded as some of the best accommodation in Kenya. All differently and uniquely furnished and great for couples, friends and families this is much more than a home away from home!
  6. This is our motto, your stay is directly benefitting the local community which is a completely unique experience. This is a responsible choice and a very rewarding one as tourism is actively protecting the area for future generations and improving their livelihood. For More Information ASK US HERE
