Laikipia camps - Laikipia Wilderness Camp
Laikipia Wilderness Camp
Laikipia Wilderness Camp is owner-run by Steve and Annabelle Carey and their two young children. Steve’s roots lie in Zimbabwe where he trained as a guide and went on to run his own safari company, specialising in walking tours. Before setting up the Wilderness Camp, the couple spent 7 years running a lodge in Laikipia, and have hence developed an in depth understanding and affinity for the region.
The camp itself is made up of 5 tents, one of which is perfectly equipped for families with young children. The main thatched mess building is composed of a dining room, bar and a library overlooking the river.
The wildlife in the surrounding area is supreme, being one of the best Wild Dog spotting sites Kenya has to offer, with the fastest growing population in Africa.
The sheer amount of wildlife in the area is reflected in the resident Augur Buzzard, who has developed a penchant for the camp’s towels, not that anyone can blame her seeing as they have recently been voted the best on safari.
Walking is the camp speciality and Steve and Annabel offer it all, from half hour jaunts to multi-day mobile walking safaris, regardless of fitness, age and pace. This throws a whole new light on the bush, allowing time to observe delights like shed feathers and fur and listen to bird song – things that are all overlooked when travelling in a noisy vehicle.
Other activities offered by the Wilderness Camp include: Game drives, lessons in: game tracking on foot, photography and animal behaviour.
