About Laikipia National Park

Increasingly acknowledged as one of the most important areas for biodiversity in Kenya, wildlife population densities in the Laikipia region and Ewaso eco-system now rank second to the internationally renowned Masai Mara ecosystem, whilst the diversity of large mammals is higher than in other part of Kenya. The Ewaso eco-system is home to the second largest population of elephant in Kenya (5,400) and the area hosts the highest populations of endangered species in the country.

Laikipia supports seven heavily protected rhino sanctuaries, which together hold over half of Kenya’s black rhino population. Laikipia has a unique combination of dry and cool weather, climatic gradients being influenced by the presence of Mount Kenya (5,199 metres) and the Aberdare highlands (3,999 meters). There is great variation in Rainfall from year to year.

A wild yet romantic haven, Laikipia is home to not only the ‘Big Five’, but a variety of rare and endangered species, including African wild dog, Grevy’s Zebra and the semi-aquatic sitatunga antelope.

Laikipia has become a focus for many conservation efforts, and some ranches have become breeding sanctuaries for Rhinos.
