Laragai House, Laikipia

An exclusive-use country retreat, Laragai House offers genuine seclusion and unparalleled mountain views on the Borana Conservancy in northern Kenya.

Sprawling for over 32,000 acres, this private conservation area is roamed by the likes of elephant, lion, reticulated giraffe, leopard, striped hyena, Grevy’s zebra and both black and white rhinos. Birds are also in abundance, with some 350 recorded species. 

Wildlife viewing can be enjoyed on foot, in open vehicles and even on horseback, with experienced and novice riders both welcomed. Rhino tracking is a particular highlight, and a great way to learn more about these endangered species whose numbers have flourished in the area in recent years. Quad biking, overnight fly camping and helicopter trips to Mount Kenya can also be arranged, whilst the conservancy’s wildlife-friendly dam is perfect for fishing and stand-up paddle boarding. With a waterhole located close to the house, you may prefer to watch wildlife from the comfort of your own room.
