Being in a conservancy, you don’t see other vehicles often and can traverse where you want. On arrival, I was immediately greeted by all the staff (too many names to remember) and then shown to my tent. Tents are simple with a storage rack, large basket with blankets if needed, and a beautiful handmade bed. The mattress for me is...

Our safari experience here ticked all the boxes - comfy tented accommodation with panoramic views over a wide area teaming with wildlife; friendly, knowledgeable, patient guides took us on personal game drives - not another vehicle in sight; exciting bush walks; a river and waterhole safe enough to swim in; picnics and sundowners in beautiful spots; an unforgettable night under...

This is our third visit to LWC and it gets better very time! Noting the fantastic comments already made on TA, I would agree with everything positive that's been said and more besides. We felt perfectly safe throughout our recent stay and this must be due to the nature of this tented camp: unpretentious, low-key but very comfortable with the...

Overall, our stay was interesting and eventful, the guides were knowledgeable, friendly and endlessly patient with our questions. The two gap year students were great, entertaining and efficient, catering for our needs. Sadly, general management and communication (from Steve and Annabelle) was lacking throughout our visit. In particular, we rarely knew what was happening and when... some of this may...

This is a great camp, it is a true wilderness camp rather than the somewhat sterile gentrified camps you can find throughout Kenya. Don't get me wrong, the camp and tents are more than comfortable but you really feel like you are experiencing a bush camp. The food is excellent and there is plenty of it, Steve is a master...

I chose LWC because they have 2 resident packs of wild dogs and in all our trips to Africa we had never seen them. LWC did not disappoint. We saw the some of the dogs resting at dusk on our first night here and were lucky enough to see them hunting on our last night, thanks to Steve's determination to...

We found LWC through an internet search on Wild Dogs and as a result of what we read made a booking. The main aim was to see Wild Dogs and get as close up as possible - well all expectations and hopes were exceeded, by a long way. We had wild dog encounters on 9 out of 11 drives as...

We stayed in two lodges during our time in the Laikipia area. This one was by far our favorite. Great guides, great game viewing, attentive staff, delicious food. LWC provided everything we needed. We did some swimming in the river (after the guides checked for hippos) and did an overnight out in the bush. We did walking safaris too. And...

Our family recently stayed at Laikipia Wilderness Camp for 4 nights. Steve and Annabelle (camp operators) are warm, relaxed, genuine people and we couldn't fault their hosting. Between them and their staff, they have created a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere, where nothing is too much trouble. Unlike many of the more well known safari areas in Kenya, there's a sense of...

“All rooms are similar, the only difference is a few extra meters from the main mess but such distances are minimal and the walks to and from your tent offer great views over Laikipia.”
