Enjoy a diverse mix of habitats and exceptional examples of wildlife conservation in this private conservancy.

Located in the north of Kenya this former cattle ranch is home to a range of habitats including forest, grassland plains, hills and wetlands. Conservation efforts have been huge and successful here.
