El Karama Lodge: Pro Gallery

El Karama, Lakipia

The perfect African safari destination with complete privacy in the wild and tailor-made Luxury for small groups, couples and families. 

This very private lodge is located in the foothills of Mount Kenya, in the heart of one of Kenya's most beautiful wildlife conservancies. With 14,000 acres of private land and views of over 200,000 acres, El Karama is one of Laikipia's most magical habitats. 

Home to several endemic and endangered species including the Grevy Zebra, Reticulated Giraffe, Elephant, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Hippo, Greater Kudu, Aardwolf, Aardvark, African Hunting Dogs to name but some of the wildlife found here. The landscapes are diverse, incredibly beautiful and the safari experience unforgettable.   The team of guides are as curious about the Trees, Birds, Plants and Insects as they are about the bigger creatures and will make sure you have the time to absorb and connect completely on foot, in vehicles and even on horse back.

Families on safari can enjoy Laikipia's first Bush School for Kids, which means parents can relax in the knowledge that between 10:30am and 12:30 each day children are busy and happy in the bush with our educators.

The lodge is also a hub for Wellness Retreats and Education Safaris: offering courses led by expert tutors throughout the year, ranging from Yoga, Pilates, Cooking, Guide Training, Birding, Botany and Entomology.
