Centrally located in Kenya, Laikipia Plateau stretches from the famous Mount Kenya to the Great Rift Valley. Made of farms and conservancies – this place has been described as “heavenly” and “iconic”, and is one of Kenya’s biggest wilderness areas. The open plains are home to species such as black rhino, wild dogs and Grevy’s zebra (unique to East Africa). Explore the sprawling Laikipia wildlife corridors on game drives and at luxury lodges; and witness where communities and wildlife co-exist.
