|The feature full Laikipia Landscape|
|Endangered Grevy's Zebra|
A wide variety of animals such as this Reticulated Giraffe and Grevy’s zebra are only found in
Northern Kenya. Only 3000 of these
animals are left in the wild and about 30 % are found in Laikipia.

|As we were lying on the ground one of the wilddogs stalked us. In the end it was less than 10 metres away.|
|Nearly independent Striped Hyena pup.|
On the topic of predators, except for all the big and small cats the very elusive Striped Hyena are found and we were very fortunate to photograph these highly evasive animals at a den.

For Birders the variety is mind boggling as the northern species is well represented. More to follow later.
Searching out the reptiles and amphibians of an area adds another dimension to any safari as it opens up a hidden but very interesting world.

I’ll leave you with what guests David and Robin Reid had to say about a few days spent in this remarkable place:
Robin and I are safely back in
Hong Kong. We really enjoyed spending time with you.
Sosian was a real surprise in terms of the photographic opportunities. That
experience lying on the ground with an inquisitive wild dog less than 10 metres
away was really special. We are also still amazed to have been able to
photograph a striped hyena.We will definitely be back again next year in early
