Stretching over a huge area from the foothills of Mount Kenya, the Laikipia Plateau is one of Kenya’s lesser known wildlife areas. This is the best place in Kenya to see wild dog. Many northern species are found including reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, Beisa oryx, Grevy's zebra and the antelope that wants to be a giraffe: the gerenuk. There are abundant elephant, lion, leopard and cheetah populations. The plateau is divided into vast conservancies for the protection of wildlife: Lewa Wilderness Conservancy, Borana Ranch, Il N’gwesi Group Ranch, the Lekurruki Group Ranch, Sabuk Wilderness, Loisaba Wilderness and Sosian Ranch. Lewa is a leader in research and education and as a guest you can learn about the ongoing projects, and Loisaba created the ‘star bed’ which is a remarkable experience. All of the conservancies are off the beaten track and offer the quintessential wilderness experience.
