Kuri Kuri Group Ranch

Laikipia tourismDescription

Kuri Kuri group ranch is one of four group ranches in eastern Laikipia that neighbours the Mukogodo forest - one of Kenya’s largest remaining dry forests (30,189 hectares). Since time began, its high biodiversity value has been conserved by Mukogodo-Maasai living in and around the forest. They were hunters and gatherers, spoke Yaaku (cushitic) and lived a semi-nomadic existence, making homes in rock shelters. In the 1920’s under British colonial policy, the Mukogodo found themselves in increasing contact with Maasai and quickly adopted key elements of their higher-status culture. Today, pastoralism on the 6000 acre group ranch is the life-blood of the community.
