MUGIE HOUSE, LAIKIPIA
A stunning accommodation located on Mugie Conservancy – a private wildlife conservancy in Laikipia of almost 50’000 acres hosting an array of impactful community and conservation programs.
Securing land for wildlife is a key conservation imperative in Africa today and Mugie Conservancy provides a key wildlife access route between the Laikipia plateau, the Mathews Range and the Samburu lands to the north and east. Mugie Conservancy is at the forefront of conservation, operating as a low-impact cattle ranch alongside preserving the delicate and productive eco-systems that host abundant wildlife. Cutting edge community grazing programs and community empowerment projects through micro-economic assistance have encouraged engagement and investment from the local community in the conservation goals of Mugie.
Perched on a hill are eight stone cottages, each with sweeping views of the Laikipia landscape. A large main house with open log fires hosts guests for relaxing cocktails and scrumptious meals, prepared from a creative menu with ingredients sourced from our own vegetable garden.
Activities include traditional shared game drives with a dedicated, highly qualified and experienced guide in specially-designed vehicles. Meet the local Mugie anti-poaching unit, go big cat tracking and enjoy bush sundowners and bush meals during your stay.
