Getting To Laikipia

Laikipia has two major entry points (Nanyuki and Nyahururu) both easily accessible by road from Kenya’s capital, Nairobi.

By road: Nanyuki is approximately 195 Km North of Nairobi on the A2 highway from Nairobi. The comfortable drive takes an estimated 3 hours via Sagana and through Karatina town. The road carries on to Meru and Isiolo. Laikipia is also a 2 hour drive from Nakuru in the rift valley via Nyahururu.

It is important to note that most roads in Laikipia’s interior are earth roads. It is advisable to 4-wheel-drive vehicles during the rainy seasons.

By air: There are daily flights into Nanyuki Airstrip through Air Kenya, Safari Link and Fly Sax. Private air charters can also be organised with the main service provider being  Tropic Air.

Most private conservancies in Laikipia and some ranches have their own airstrips, which can be accessed by the chartered aircrafts. Most facilities will arrange to transfer guests directly by air or road from Nairobi or any other destination as part of their services.
