Bobong Campsite

Laikipia tourismLocation

Situated on Ol Maisor a working family ranch, north of Rumuruti, Bobong Campsite is located on a small escarpment over looking the Ewaso Narok Swamps, the Laikipia plains, Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Range.

Bobong is a self-help campsite. Its location attracts a great variety of bird life. Not only are the plains and rocky species abundant, but Ol Maisor Ranch has many water and some forest birds too. In 2003, Bobong rated 3rd in Kenya’s World Birdwatch count. Bobong is an ideal destination and starting point for camel safaris, as well as educational and adventure holidays for groups, families and individuals. Activities are arranged according to guest’s interests and budget.
