GUIDE ON EKORIAN'S MUGIE CAMP IN KENYA
The word Ekorian meaning olive wood is taken from the Turkana language. Ekorian's Mugie Camp is so named because its owners, Josh and Donna Perret collected and used dead olive wood for the construction of their camp with the intention to create a mid-range, eco-friendly accommodation for guests intimately vacationing in East Africa. Ekorian’s Mugie Camp is a part of the expansive 46,000-acre of the Mugie Ranch in north-western Laikipia. A 22,000-acre section of this wilderness has been delegated as the Mugie Conservancy and supports varied species of animals in addition to a stunning range of flora and fauna. Ekorian's Mugie is made of a collection of tents, each erected on low level, individual wooden platforms with steps leading up. Thatched roofs provide additional shelter to the 6 cozy tents, in addition to the central lounge-mess furnished with plush sofas and a dining area. An extended deck to one side of the lounge tent is the perfect setting to have an al fresco breakfast while enjoying the tranquil morning air of northern Laikipia. You might even sight a buffalo, giraffe or an elephant close by. The camp has 6 capacious and comfortable tents with either a double bed or twin beds. Hardwood floors have woven throw rugs with ethnic African patterns and insect-proof mesh windows on both sides also allow daylight and the cool breeze in. Pretty white, diaphanous curtains lend a romantic, classic touch and the entrance is through rollback flaps at the front. A modest escritoire is provided where you can sit and perhaps write journals of your safari trip in Laikipia with AfricanMecca. The attached bathroom at the back has his and her basins perched atop a dresser and shower stall. Only solar panels are used to light the camp and low-energy water heaters provide the hot water you need for showers. Your meals at the camp are cooked with care on site by Donna and her cooks. Purified drinking water is provided in reusable glass bottles that are also placed in your room. Have exciting lunches in the bush and spend your evenings beside a campfire with canapés and cocktails. Dinners are also memorable events of your northern Kenyan tour with the sounds of the bush around you. Listen to owls hooting in the night, hyenas laughing, elephants trumpeting and lions roaring in the distance. Mugie Conservancy has preservation programs specially directed at lions that are facing a serious threat because of rising human settlements and livestock farming. It is also one of the reserves that have implemented the Laikipia Predator Project. On your expedition travel to Laikipia, you might have the rare opportunity to track the movements of lions. Kenya's third largest dam is located in Mugie in which a 156-acre lake was formed as a result, provides a much-needed water source for animals. You may see herds of elephants coming to drink as you go kayaking on the lake. You could also go fishing for tilapia or bass while watching feathered, seasonal visitors from as far as Siberia and residents dip into the lake as well. Go on game drives in the company of an expert guide and revel in the mist-covered beauty of Mugie with grazing Jackson’s hartebeest, Grevy’s zebras, elands and many more. Cheetahs, leopards and hyenas are some of the other predators you might see (read more on when is the best time to visit Laikipia). Mugie’s varied species of birds make your avian-watching expeditions thrilling, and if you enjoy golf, Mugie has its own two-tier green set in a copse of olive trees. AfricanMecca does would not welcome the idea of having a sporting venue in the middle of beautiful wildlife habitat. Either way, visit Ekorian’s Mugie Camp for a family or adventure holiday in Kenya less than the golf if you desire.
