If you’re looking for a slightly slower paced safari, we recommend Laikipia. It’s a vast patchwork of private ranches, wildlife conservancies and small farms which encompasses the entire area north of Nanyuki to Isiolo.

The setting, against the backdrop of Mount Kenya, is absolutely lovely. And the landscape, a riot of acacia-decked hills and dramatic gorges, is truly mesmerising. Aside from game viewing, there are lots of activities to try including horse riding, archery, mountain biking – and even camel trekking.

We recommend flying into Nairobi, a transfer to Wilson airport then a flight to the local airstrip. A great twin centre with the Masai Mara.


Laikipia has a pleasant climate year round. January to March are warm and dry, with the rain coming in April & May. July to September is prime time for game viewing as it’s dry, the bush is less dense and animals are attracted to watering holes and rivers. From October onwards, it’s quieter and less crowded – expect occasional short showers, mainly in the afternoon.
