Mammals of Laikipia

A location interposed between the eastern African savannahs and the dry lands of the Horn of Africa gives Laikipia a unique mix of mammal species from both biomes. The larger mammals – elephants, predators, antelopes – will be sure to impress, but don’t forget the many smaller mammals, including bats, rodents and lesser predators, that also have roles to play in the area’s ecology.
