Il Polei Campsite

Laikipia tourismDescription

Il Polei group ranch has dedicated 5,600 acres for wildlife conservation to the 43,000 acre Naibunga Conservancy, which links 9 group ranches in central Laikipia. Il Polei is located 40kms out of Nanyuki on the northern slopes of Lolldaiga hills. The ranch is home to buffalo, elephant, gerenuk, lion and baboon, and bird life is abundant.



Il Polei group ranch has several campsites within its wildlife conservancy. Some are positioned near a seasonal river bed and others next to rocky hills, with viewpoints. The campsites are ideal for weekend campers and adventurers.


Plenty of space for scenic walks and hikes. Visitors also have the chance to link up with the Uaso Ngiro Baboon Project team to visit the world’s most researched troop, and learn a little about their social behaviour – they are ‘almost human’. Other specific activities include ‘Walking with Maasai’ to learn how people, livestock and wildlife live together despite the growing challenges. Guests must be accompanied on all walks and seek advice of the whereabouts of big game before heading out on bikes.
