Morupusi Campsite

MorupusiLocation

Located within the 43,000 acre Naibunga Conservancy, a community initiative linking 9 group ranches in central Laikipia, where a 10-year management plan is in place to guide conservation efforts and support livelihoods. The typical semi-arid landscape with red-earthed rolling hills and rocky outcrops is covered with acacia trees, and the area has a significant wild dog population.

Overview

Camping

Camping within the Wuakumbe Hills with views across the Kipsing lugga, and northern Kenya. The site has scattered acacia trees and rocky outcrops with flowering Euphorbia and tropical Dracaena. An additional camping option is on the sandy banks of the seasonal Sinyai River, shaded by yellow-fever trees - home to both elusive and gregarious species of wildlife and a variety of singing birds.

Adventure

Morupusi group ranch has many walking and hiking opportunities, and the dirt roads are ideal for mountain biking. One option is to walk from Wuakumbe Hill to the summit of Norpanga Hill for a picnic. Visitors must be accompanied by a guide on walks and hikes, and the whereabouts of elephant and buffalo must be sought before heading out on bikes.
