Laikipia is a vast expanse of wild and rugged country in the central highlands of Kenya - running from the foot of Mt Kenya in the East to the rim of the Rift Valley in the west. Laikipia itself lies outside the jurisdiction of National Parks, and so Laikipia holidays offer the chance to get out of a vehicle and embrace a completely different kind of safari. Laikipia is home to some of the most exclusive lodges in the country, in some of the most amazing privately owned conservancies the country has to offer. East of the Great Rift Valley, the plateau is home to thousands of resident animals, with
rhinos being the most notable common residents of the area. The backdrop of the Aberdare Mountains and Mount Kenya itself set the scene for one of Africa's most diverse areas. The towering kopjes, huge cedar forests, and vast plains combine to make a truly amazing destination, all seen from the privacy of your exclusive safari camp. The area also allows for amazing cultural experiences with the Maasai tribes, the Samburu, Tukana and Pokot peoples.

Kenya customer reviews (9 reviews)
James - thank you. We had a truly wonderful and memorable trip. Everything that Original Travel had a hand in was perfect. Our time at Lewa was perfect and Sirikoi is very special. Sarara was also great and we loved the Samburu experience. Kinondo Kwetu is also a special place. I was not expecting the food to be a highlight, but it was a revelation. We will go back to Kenya. We will go back to Sirikoi. We will probably go back to Sarara. We are properly happy punters. James and Team – thank you.
