Laikipia Plateau Lodges and Safari Camps
The Laikipia Plateau, located on the edge of Kenya's famed and remote Northern Frontier, is a region situated between the slopes of Mount Kenya and the rim of the Great Rift Valley. The snow-capped silhouette of Mount Kenya, vast open plains to scenic roll hills, this is the vastness of the Laikipia Plateau, Kenya's second-largest conservancy (after Tsavo).
Once dominated by livestock ranches, substantial conservation efforts have transformed the region into one of east Africa's most exciting and exclusive wildlife destinations teeming with wildlife and birdlife.
Wildlife that can be seen and photographed include; Grevy's zebra, black rhino, African wild dog, reticulated giraffe, greater and lesser kudu, gerenuk and Beisa oryx, and that is not forgetting, lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant and buffalo. In other words, the wildlife here is up there with the best that Africa as a continent has to offer.
Most (if not all) Laikipia Plateau lodges are easily accessible from all other regions in Kenya with numerous airstrips and good road infrastructure. Getting to the area is either by light aircraft or road transfer; the choice is yours and will depend on one's safari budget.
Any of the below lodges and safari camps can be added to your tailor-made safari itinerary.
