Ekorian's Mugie Camp is a fantastic authentic safari camp whose plains environment and pride of lion works brilliantly in combination with other camps in the region such as Laikipia Wilderness, Sabuk and Sosian.

Ekorian's is a small owner-run bush camp with 6 spacious guest tents and an attractive open sided mess area all set within lawns overlooking the plains. Accommodation is perfectly pitched with just the right balance between comfort, space and reason. The recent addition of a swimming pool is a big plus.

Ekorian's is set on Mugie Ranch which covers 46,000 acres in total of which 22,000 acres have been set aside to create Mugie Conservancy. The Conservancy is home to around seventy species of mammals including lion, cheetah, leopard, buffalo, elephant, eland, giraffe, zebra, hyena, impala, and warthog. There are many rare and endangered species residing on Mugie, including the Grevy’s Zebra and Jacksons Hartebeest.

In addition to traditional safari day and night game drives, bush walks and fly camping, there is the opportunity to kayak and fish and visit local Samburu and Pokot communities. Mugie Dam offers the rare opportunity to see wildlife from kayaks. The dam has no crocodiles or hippos and is also safe for swimming. Whilst kayaking, it is not unusual to see game coming to drink or swim at the dam, especially in the hotter, drier, seasons. Slightly out of place is the Mugie Ranch golf course, arguably slightly incongruous with a safari conservancy but nothing to do with the charming Ekorian's Camp and hidden well away.

Ekorian's is an excellent choice for families. One tent has a small annexe attached to it to make it suitable for families with young children. There is a small pool onsite and the variety of activities on offer is enough to keep any family occupied. The camp is owned and run by Josh and Donna Perrett who have their own young children so have a good understanding of the needs of families.

  • Dear Lisa, We are now back home and had a fantastic time. All the arrangements went seamlessly, transport and hotels were great. Laikipia was amazing, a very personal experience and they did all they could to accommodate everything we wanted to do. The river location was fantastic and ideal for the children as they got to swim in it. It is somewhere we would all like to return to. There might not have been the numbers that you get on the Masai Mara however we got to see lions with cubs, two black leopards, a golden leopard and the wild dogs as well as a huge number of other animals and birds. Thank you for suggesting to stay for 4 nights, it was just the right amount of time. The tamarin Hotel was a good choice as we were able to eat at the Carnivore restaurant which was an experience. Mauritius was lovely and relaxing, just what we needed after a very active time in Laikipia. Accommodation and service was great. Weather was good for most of the time, a few showers over the last couple of days. Thank you once again for organising it all. Sally

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • I had just the most incredible time on the climb.

    The team were incredible and just so accommodating. I really only have good things to say as it was such a great experience.

    George was as good as a guide as it gets, very articulate and made sure I was comfortable the whole way up with frequent briefings.
