Nkiloriti Group Ranch

Laikipia tourismDescription

Nkiloriti group ranch derives its name from El-Kiloriti meaning Acacia nilotica. Here the terrain is rugged and hilly, drained by the Sinyai and Kipsing rivers. Nkiloriti neighbours Morupusi and Kijabe group ranchers, and is a member of Naibunga Conservancy, which was set up with the aim to promote sustainable natural resource management, and improve/diversify economic livelihoods of the community. Of its 7,000 acres, members of the group ranch have set aside 3,000 acres for wildlife conservation managed by the Kijabe Trust.



The campsite is well treed on a high hill with views over the Kipsing valley. The community have plans to develop camping facilities including toilets and a water tank.
