Laikipia is a vast and stunning area in Kenya’s northern rangelands, covering 9,500 km². It lies north of the Aberdares Mountain Range, stretching from the slopes of Mt. Kenya in the southeast to the edge of the Great Rift Valley in the west.
Laikipia boasts a diverse range of habitats, from dry savannahs to spectacular canyons. It’s also one of Kenya’s most exciting wilderness areas, with an abundance of wildlife, including the Big 5 and endangered species like Grevy’s zebra and reticulated giraffe. The region supports the second highest density of wildlife in Kenya and is one of the few places where wildlife numbers are increasing. The success is due to community-owned ranches, private farms, and wildlife conservancies that work together for conservation.
For a true wildlife experience, visitors should visit Loisaba Conservancy, located on a sheer escarpment with views of the Laikipia plateau. This 230 km2 conservancy boasts rivers, forests, springs, valleys, and open plains, providing habitat for elephants, lions, and other large mammals.
Laikipia is a model of sustainable conservation, with local communities committed to protecting wildlife and habitats. Their successful wildlife conservancies also provide an income. Visitors can enjoy Laikipia while also supporting conservation efforts.
Laikipia offers a unique and unforgettable experience for nature lovers and adventure seekers. Its diverse habitats, thriving wildlife, and spectacular scenery make it a hidden gem in northern Kenya. Don’t miss the chance to explore this wild and beautiful destination.
