Overview

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.

  • 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.

  • The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
    There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
    Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
    Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

  • We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
    Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
