Located in Kenyan wilderness, Laikipia is a small, family-run bush camp with great views of Mount Kenya and the Ewaso Narok River.
Arranged on raised platforms around the camp centre, the five large en-suite tents feature private decks facing the sunrise and open-air bathrooms. Wild animals can stroll through the camp as there are no fences, adding to the traditional safari experience.
Relaxed meals are taken al fresco when possible, usually around the open campfire with local bush tales from the hospitable owners, Steve and Annabelle. Guests can sample some of the local game with fresh vegetables from the camp's organic garden.
Walking safaris are Steve's speciality, with short, long and multi-day mobile safari walks tailored to guests' requests. Game and night drives enable guests to encounter a variety of animals, including wild dog tracking in conjunction with the Laikipia Predator Project. To keep the family busy between safari trips, the camp also offers rock climbing, tubing, fishing and Samburu village visits. For an authentic adventure, make sure to spend a night fly camping in the bush, sleeping under warm blankets and fly nets beneath the stars.
