The perfect African safari destination with complete privacy in the wild.  Located at the heart of a 14,000 acre private wildlife conservancy in Laikipia, Kenya's most diverse wildlife region. Home to several endemic and endangered species, Elephant, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Aardwolf and many other mammals, birds, insects and plants, the views are far reaching, the landscapes incredibly beautiful and the experience unforgettable. 

El Karama is an award-winning, intimate, family-friendly wildlife lodge with exceptional game viewing. El Karama Lodge comprises just six comfortable and private cottages – together with a spacious central living and dining ‘mess’, a beautiful ‘eco’ swimming pool, two poolside pavilions and an active salt lick with visiting wildlife. It is the perfect option for families and small groups looking for an affordable and authentic lodge with a genuine ‘bush home’ feel.

El Karama is situated centrally within Laikipia District, in the 40,000 square km Ewaso ecosystem that boasts more diversity of fauna and flora than any other region in Kenya.

The Lodge is located on the Ewaso Nyiro River. It enjoys views of Mt Kenya, the Aberdares and Loldaiga hills. It is the nearest and therefore the most accessible property to Nanyuki town and airstrip.

Built by the Grant family (cattle ranchers) who has an artistic heritage means the lodge has a strong artistic style throughout. All bandas are made with stone/ wood/ thatch from the ranch itself giving it a very authentic feel.
