Location: A lovely small eco-lodge located on a private reserve in the heart of Kenya, in Laikipia, on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River. El Karama Lodge is very intimate, and is a great place for small groups looking for adventure in the wild. Wake up with the views to the peaks of Mount Kenya and fall asleep to the sounds of the mighty Ewaso Nyiro river.
How to get here: Fly from Wilson airport.
Structure: You will sleep in airy cottages made of stone, wood, thatch and canvas. Having only eight in total means you will enjoy privacy and intimacy throughout your whole experience here. The cottages have 24 hour electricity (solar) for lighting and hot water, flushing toilets and bath/showers. Dining is important here, always fresh, hearty and creative, with a French touch. They offer home-grown food cooked by an experienced team of chefs.
Why staying here: The wildlife experience here is world–class, offering abundant sightings, including four of the Big 5. Here you can get closer to the wildlife on the horse or on the camel. The habitat has many bird species and unique Northern Kenyan species such as Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk and vulterine guinea fowl.
They have a specific focus on children at Kenya’s first Bush School, which is focused on educating and ‘rewilding’ children during their safari. The little ones will be busy learning about the bush with the guides and naturalists, tracking animals to planting trees, clay sculpting and playing with baby rabbits.
