Grazing Mammals

Laikipia is home to various antelopes and grazing mammals that also occur in the Masai Mara and other parts of southern Kenya. Examples are Waterbuck, Impala, Eland, African Buffalo, Plains Zebra, Bushbuck, Grant’s and Thomson’s Gazelles and Kirk’s Dikdik. There are no wildebeest, however, or Topi. The area also supports species typical of the dry country to the north, including Beisa Oryx, Grevy’s Zebra, Reticulated Giraffe and Günther’sDikdik. While most of these species occur side by side, the two similar-looking Dikdiks seem to stick to different areas, with Günther’s preferring the red soils of north-central Laikipia.
