LAIKIPIA

Kenya's best safari area

Laikipia National Reserve

Sandwiched between Mount Kenya and the northern deserts, Laikipia is where Kenya’s wild and semi-arid northern frontier country begins. The region is made up of privately owned and community ranches centred around the Laikipia National Reserve.

Known as one of Kenya’s best safari areas, the high plains of Laikipia feature vast open stretches of African savanna scattered with abundant game including: Grevy’s zebras, black rhino, lion, leopard, wild dogs, buffalo and thousands of elephants. Visitors can enjoy a luxury safari experience at a private lodge or stay in the worthwhile community-run lodges which support the local Samburu and Ilaikipiak and Mokogodo Maasai communities.

Best time to visit Laikipia

The best time for a safari is between June and September, the dry months. High season runs from June to October and December till March. The area is accessable all year round but April, May and November the roads might be in bad condition due to the rains.
