Laikipia, Meru & Central Kenya

Lying in the shadow of Mount Kenya (the second-highest mountain in Africa), the country’s central region is made up of privately-owned ranches on vast estates and numerous national parks that contour Kenya’s more unknown safari regions.

A destination of choice for discerning safari-goers, Laikipia Plateau, which stretches west from the magnificent mountain, is dominated by huge cattle ranches, many of which are now private wildlife sanctuaries containing the famed ‘Big Five’. Free from the restrictions of national parks and reserves, Laikipia offers a seemingly endless list of things to do, including exciting game drives, walks, horse riding adventures, village visits, and unique chances to see life in the bush on a working cattle ranch. Adventurers can trek for days accompanied only by Masai guides and camels, sleeping under the stars for a truly authentic experience.

Alternatively those after a typically ‘African safari’ can make the most of the central Kenya’s abundant wildlife, from its high number of black rhinos to its many packs of elusive wild dog, and venture to Meru National Park. Often overlooked but all the better for our clients, Meru stages an impressive landscape populated by unspoilt wildlife. Watch lions roam the park’s northern plains, photograph baobab trees at sunset as they’re haloed by the setting sun and scan the horizon for beautiful bataleur eagles floating lazily on the thermals above.

All tethered around Kenya’s constantly visible mountain, why not combine the quiet but vast plains of Laikipia with the genuine experience offered in Meru for an off-the-beaten-track holiday to central Kenya.
