The vast and luscious Laikipia Plateau is one of the best places to visit in Kenya to see wildlife. Located in between Mount Kenya and Samburu, it is made up of several private and community-owned conservancies. As well as offering transformative Kenya safari tours, these conservancies protect the land and bring jobs to local communities, offering an insight into some of Kenya's inspiring sustainability initiatives.
Those who visit Laikipia get to stay in small Kenya safari camps and enjoy a more intimate and rewarding Kenya safari. Visitors can encounter the most precious Kenya wildlife in a pristine, unfenced wilderness without encountering large crowds. Expect mesmerising sightings of majestic elephants, giraffes, lions, buffalos, hippos and warthog, as well as the elusive leopard, striped hyena and wild dog.
Endangered species can be seen here more than anywhere else in East Africa, and Laikipia is recognised for its flourishing numbers of these rare animals. Laikipia also offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy activities that are not permitted in most national parks and reserves, enhancing your Kenya safari holiday with something unique. Transform your trip with wild dog tracking, a guided camel trek with "Karisa Walking Safaris", or even swimming in tumbling waterfalls.
