Welcome to Laikipia Wilderness

A small and personal bush camp with just 5 tents catering for 10 guests, en suite open air bathrooms with hot and cold running water. The camp has beautiful views of Mt Kenya and the wilderness and blends sympathetically into this stunning area of true wilderness.

We specialise in making each day an adventure and will suggest a programme designed to suit you. We offer game drives and walking safaris which can be focussed on specific interests such as photography, tracking game on foot, following specific species and watching animal behaviour. With three children of our own here in camp we welcome visitors of all ages.

The camp consists of a tented mess building with dining room, bar and sitting room/library, and a deck in front with open camp-fire in the evenings. Activities included are:

  • Walking Safaris
  • Game drives, Night drives
  • Rock-Climbing, Swimming, Tubing and Fishing in the river
  • Samburu village visits
  • Birding
  • Fly-camping under the stars

The area is fantastic for big numbers of elephants, giraffe, hippo, Grevy’s zebra, leopard, wild dog, lion, striped and spotted hyena, aardwolf, aardvark, and over 280 species of birds. We work closely with the Laikipia Predator Project collecting data from our sightings of wild dogs and lions, some of whom are fitted with radio collars for this research and our guests are able to participate in this.

We also run walking safaris using a lightweight mobile camp, enabling us to follow the wildlife and adventure rather than a set route. Starting at Laikipia Wilderness Camp these can finish at one of Laikipia’s luxury lodges which offer a whole different aspect to a safari from quad-biking to horse-riding, camel safaris, spa treatments and infinity pools! In addition to walking safaris, we run expeditions to places we love such as Lake Bogoria Baringo and Turkana, see more on our Kenya Safaris page.

We have 20 years of experience running walking safaris, expeditions and camps in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Kenya. This is our way of life and our passion and we love sharing this amazing area with guests from all over the world. Together with a small team of local Kenyans who grew up in this area and our three young sons we would like to welcome you to Laikipia.
