Laikipia Plateau

Kenya - Kenyan Highlands

Laikipia Plateau, sprawls on the edge of the Northern Kenyan Frontier, stretching from the slopes of Mount Kenya to the rim of the Great Rift Valley. This natural haven is made up of ranches and conservancies, and over time, conservationists have tried to create a place for communities and wildlife to exist hand in hand to maintain and protect biodiversity in the region.

Vast open plains in the shadow of the snow-capped silhouette of Mount Kenya create a tranquil and secluded setting, where game drives encounter wildlife including endangered species such as black rhino, Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe and wild dogs with few other vehicles in sight.

An important wildlife area scattered with a mosaic of farms and cattle ranches, conservationists and ranchers alike have worked together in this wildlife refuge that supports large numbers of game. Steeped in history from the colonial days in Kenya, this is a significant natural area from a safari and conservation perspective.
