El Karama Lodge

A family-friendly home away from home on a cattle ranch

In the heart of Laikipia National Park

A truly authentic and hands on safari adventure for all the whole family

Located on El Karama Ranch, a 14,000 acre cattle ranch with stunning landscapes and abundant wildlife and birds, this lodge enjoys direct views of Mt Kenya, the Aberdares and the Lolldaiga hills. El Karama Lodge is a relaxed, personal and fun place to stay.

Accommodation is made up on four Thatched Banda's, made of stone and canvas, perfect for couples or older children. The Rondavel Cottage was built with families and groups in mind, with one double bed, two twin beds and one sofa it is perfect for those who want to stay together. The Hobbit House is a large two bedroomed cottage which can sleep up to six people, perfect for families who still want some privacy. The brand new River Tents, ideal for "Glamping", were designed as a little sister camp to the main lodge, these beautiful two-room safari tents are located along the river from the main lodge.

You wont go hungry at El Karama as all of the food is home-made, 90% is home-grown in the organic garden at the farm HQ and most of the meat is locally sourced.

Visitors to El Karama enjoy complete freedom, this is no ordinary safari destination: you can walk out on foot with the guides, bird watch with specialists, photograph from the rock hide, take guided game drives and night drives in customised vehicles and if you are feeling brave try staying out in the bush in unique tree tents!!

Kids activities include farm visits, 'Poo Safaris' (tracking animals based on what they leave behind) and footprint plaster casting - after all of this they can cool down in the eco-pool between game drives, it is solar powered and contains no salt or chlorine.

There are over 80 mammal species including lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, hippo, reticulated giraffe, common and Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, eland, oryx and much more.
