The Laikipia Plateau is divided into a patchwork of ranches – each an enormous size – many of which in the early 1990s, turned from farming to wildlife and formed the Laikipia Wildlife Forum. Together they have created an enormous wildlife stronghold the size of Wales, which contains some of Kenya’s most endangered animals. It is one of the last refuges for endangered black rhino and has the largest elephant population outside of Kenya’s national parks and reserves. The magnificent plateau sweeps right to the eastern edge of the Rift Valley, where it drops off into deeply wooded gorges and tangled riverine thickets.
