Plenty of opportunities for hiking, bush walks around Mukogodo Forest, sundowners at hilltops overlooking the Laikipia plains and beyond, visits to the community and insights into their daily activities with options to take part in a number of day-to-day community activities. Guests must be accompanied on all walks and seek advice of the whereabouts of big game before heading out on bikes and walks.
Wildlife: Common wildlife species include buffalo, elephant, giraffe, hyrax, waterbuck, warthog, lion, wild dog and plenty of bird species.
