WHERE TO STAY IN LAIKIPIA CONSERVANCIES
Most accommodations at Laikipia are deluxe to exclusive, so the ratings reflect the location based on maximal wildlife viewing, quality of services, guest rooms, amenities, cuisine, facilities and standard of guides and inclusion of varied activities.
In Laikipia, we recommend the Tier 1 accommodations such Lewa Wilderness and Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp. Lewa Wilderness with its nine rooms offers a premium accommodation located in the Eastern Marania Valley. You spend your days and night amidst a beautiful 62,000-acre privately-owned conservancy – Lewa Conservancy, one of the top known conservancies in Laikipia, Kenya and also in Africa. Lewa is best known for the neoteric “elephant corridor” that was constructed to allow the movement of migratory wildlife.
The second Tier 1 accommodation we recommend is Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp set within a community-owned 61,000-acre conservancy. Members of the Maasai and Samburu peoples are your hosts, and you enjoy the utmost service while staying in one of the eleven guest tents at Loisaba Bush Camp, six starbeds at two separate sites (Kiboko and Koija) and the family suitable Loisaba Cottage with four rooms.
For AfricanMecca visitants who desire a balance between quality and price, our Tier 2 recommendations include Lewa Safari Camp in Lewa Conservancy and IL N’gwesi. Lewa Safari Camp offers 12 guest tents with ensuite bathrooms and private verandahs for breathtaking views of the conservancies. IL N’gwesi is a community-owned and operated conservancy where you are treated to your own private eco-banda.
All six bandas on the property are built from local materials, and the views are simply stunning. The ensuite bathroom with outdoor shower and private verandah makes you feel nestled within your own intimate space of the East African bush.
For a budget-friendly trip to Laikipia, we recommend the economical Tier 3 accommodations of Laikipia Wilderness Camp and El Karama Eco Lodge. Laikipia Wilderness Camp is situated near the Ewaso Narok River with spectacular views of Mount Kenya in the distant. The five tent camp takes great pride in minimizing the impact on the environment.
As such, electricity is solar generated and guest accommodations are modest, yet comfortable and very personable. Surrounded by 14,000 acres in central Laikipia wilderness, El Karama Eco Lodge features six guest rooms and accommodates a maximum of eighteen guests. Solar electricity is used for hot water, lighting and power, and the property is also lit with traditional lanterns. Rainwater is collected and filtered for drinking.
