Laikipia Plateau

Ekorian's Mugie Camp Location Map

Ekorian's Mugie Camp is located in the Mugie Conservancy within Kenya's Laikipia plateau on the edge of the Great Rift Valley. Mugie is home to several endangered species and forms an essential corridor for connecting West Laikipia with the highlands of Mount Kenya. With its open savannah, dotted with iconic acacia trees, scrubby bush and olive tree forests, Mugie provides a protected haven for animals, birds, and plant life. Grevy's zebra, Jackson's hartebeest, (which are endemic to the area), big cats, buffalo, elephants, reticulated giraffe, storks, and birds of prey, are just a few of the wonderful creatures that roam Mugie's plains and forests.

Ekorian gives you the rare opportunity for a tailored adventure, guided by experts. The team at Ekorian has a passion for sharing their love of wildlife, wild lands, and wild experiences, with others. They have lived and worked together for years and the camaraderie, and enthusiasm with which they welcome you to Ekorian, is palpable.

Activities include game drives, kayaking, fishing, bush walks, cultural visits - and even camel trekking and fly camping. Mugie has two bloodhounds, specifically trained for scent tracking and used to track poachers or thieves on Mugie, neighbouring ranches, and throughout Kenya. Local heroes, they are amazing dogs to watch work and guests can also enjoy a walk with the hounds and see first hand a demonstration of their skills.

The camp is composed of 6 tents (each raised on wooden decks and covered with a papyrus roof), a communal mess tent for sitting and dining, a reception area, a shady deck adjoining the swimming pool (overlooking a watering hole), dotted along a grassy lawn with native aloe and flower beds. The camp is surrounded by a stonewall and electric fence, which allows you walk around camp without a worry.

Various activities in camp keep everyone occupied during down-time, such as volleyball, bird watching, traditional archery, spear throwing, lawn games and a trampoline and a fresh water chemical-free swimming pool. Meals are held in the mess tent, by the pool, or out in the bush, depending on how you would like to spend your day.
