It is always gratifying when conservation efforts truly pay off, and the Laikipia Plateau is a place of much excitement!
Originally extensive farmland, a huge effort has succeeded in reclaiming much of the land between the slopes of the Aberdares and the snowy peaks of the mighty Mount Kenya. The area now boasts the second highest concentration of wildlife in Kenya - the Masai Mara topping the list!
Divided up into private concessions, the Laikipia Plateau consists of accommodation in tented camps, as well as lavish bush homes, allowing for a wonderful personalised experience.
Although somewhat disappointingly there is no actual line drawn around the world (as much as we looked for it!), it is great fun to drive across the equator and watch the presentations conducted showing the change in the swirling direction of water flowing through a funnel. Whether it is clever hand tricks or the real Coriolis effect, it is bound to stimulate much debate and intrigue.
