El Karama lodge @ ksh13,700
El Karama Ranch is a 15,000 acre cattle and wildlife ranch, situated in the heart of Laikipia, between Mount Kenya and the Great Rift Valley. The ranch has been home to Guy Grant and his family since 1963. The bandas are situated at a safe distance from the rivers edge and look across to a salt lick where wildlife often congregate in the early morning and evening.
With 75 identified species of mammal including elephant, buffalo, leopard and lion and over 350 species of birds, El Karama is a nature lover’s paradise
Guests have the choice of a comfortable private banda complete with verandas for star-gazing. We also have a stone rondavel and the family sized upstream cottage for larger groups. Each banda/cottage has a spacious ensuite stone bathroom and face onto the river and a salt lick making them ideal for game watching.
El KaramaBandas consist of an exclusive selection of beautifully constructed stone and canvas bandas (cottages) set on the banks of the EwasoNyiro. This affordable and comfortable riverside retreat provides the perfect setting for nature lovers seeking the ultimate Kenyan safari experience.
