Laikipia and beyond
A massive wild area combining small farming communities, huge private ranches, community and conservation projects within Samburu and Maasai lands. The Northern Frontier District extends further north to even wilder lands and deserts with some fairly untamed people. It's where our real exploration in Kenya takes place with camel safaris and walking in wild places.
Laikipia and the Northern Frontier District is wild and sparsely
populated. It offers a real sense of freedom and adventure. Far
reaching views of Mount Kenya provide a constant reminder of how
remote you are from the other world.
Much of this Reserve is covered by large, privately owned
ranches, populated by cattle sharing the land with free ranging
The Ewaso Nyiro River links Laikipia to the adjacent Samburu
region where highlights include Shaba National Reserve. It was here
that Joy Adamson spent her final years, returning Penny the leopard
to the wild.
Meru National Reserve is the least visited of Kenya's national
parks and reserves. It remains an unspoiled wilderness. It was here
that George and Joy Adamson returned Elsa the lioness to the wild
as depicted in the film, Born Free. Meru's landscape is
characterised by stands of Doum Palm trees, dense forests, rolling
hills and rocky outcrops or 'kopjes'.
One of our favourite safari locations in East Africa -
experienced travellers will understand the pleasure of escaping the
main tourist haunts.
Laikipia and the Northern Frontier District matches the very
experience that makes Mara so popular.
Laikipia is a place where it's wise to go
beyond the obvious...
