district is a vast plateau of 8000 sq km that extends from the Great Rift Valley to the escarpments that descend into the Northern Frontier District. Laikipia National Park, northwest of Mount Kenya, is home to all of Kenya's wildlife. It borders to the north with the Samburu National Reserve
, to the east with Meru
and with Lago Baringo
to the west.
The region is home to some of the endangered species, such as Grevys' zebra
and Jackson's harrier
The Ewaso Nyiro
and Ewaso Narok
rivers flow through this beautiful region, feeding rich vegetation and transforming the surrounding landscape with vast grasslands and dense cedar forests.
Once an area with a high density of herds and cattle farms, it was later transformed into an area of conservation and preservation of wild nature.
It is no coincidence that this region is considered the gateway to the wild and delicate northern ecosystem of Kenya.
