How to Get to Us
Either by daily scheduled flight to Nanyuki/Loisaba followed by a 1 and a half hour road transfer, all of which we arrange, or by vehicle from Nairobi which takes 4-5 hours which we can also arrange. So depending if you like flying or driving, both take about the same length of time door to door and if there are lots of you or you are travelling as a group or family, driving is much cheaper. The scheduled flights all depart in the morning so unless you arrive first thing in the morning you will either need to overnight in Nairobi or be driven to Laikipia.

The temperature is cool in the morning and evening and warm/hot during the day (rising to 32C but typically 27C). So morning and evening especially in the vehicle on drives you will need a fleece or jacket, and during the day we tend to wear shorts or light weight trousers/three-quarter length trousers and light weight shirts, with something warmer added for the evening. Dining in the evening is informal. You will need comfortable walking shoes, we recommend trainers/cross trainers rather than actual hiking boots which are heavy and bulky. River sandals or plimsoles you don’t mind getting wet are useful but not essential, plus a pair of flip flops for cooling off in the heat of the day, and swimming costume. A hat is essential, preferably one which shields all of your head and shoulders rather than a baseball cap. For a complete packing list of what to bring please click here.
Animals see mostly in black and white so we recommend you try and steer clear of these colours for day time clothing. You don’t need to go out and buy a whole putty coloured wardrobe, the Samburu and Masai people wear red, purple, orange and pink and manage to survive even if they are faster runners than we are! Any neutral tones of clothing from green, blue, red, rust, brown, khaki, orange is fine, just not black or white or very bright colours such as fuscia pink! But don’t waste your money on a complete safari wardrobe as it is not necessary. Avoid delicate clothing as everything is washed by hand and sometimes things change shape or melt under a hot charcoal iron!
