To elevate Laikipia to the ranks of popular tourist hotspots in the country, stakeholders in the tourism sector have put in place ambitious plans to showcase the distinct allure of the region that stands out amidst the array of tourist destinations.

Nestled in the heart of the country, Laikipia boasts a unique blend of landscapes, wildlife, and cultural experiences that are unparalleled in other counties.

The county mesmerizes visitors with its diverse offerings that extend beyond the ordinary by providing both local and international tourists with an adventure that transcends expectations.

From thrilling safaris to immersive cultural encounters, Laikipia promises an unforgettable experience that leaves a lasting impression.

What sets Laikipia apart is its array of physically demanding activities that push visitors to new limits and elevate their stay to unparalleled heights. Whether it's mountain biking across rugged terrains, embarking on challenging hiking trails, or engaging in adrenaline-pumping wildlife encounters, Laikipia caters to the adventurous spirit of every traveller.

As Laikipia emerges as a tourist hotspot, it is poised to revolutionize the world of luxury accommodations. The county's envisioned resorts, lodges, and camps are designed not just to provide shelter but to offer an indulgent sanctuary where guests can unwind in luxury amidst the untamed beauty of the region.

With its promise of a transformative and enriching travel experience, Laikipia stands as a game-changer in the realm of tourism, beckoning travellers to explore its hidden treasures and embrace a journey that transcends the normal.

These five-star hotels in the county have shattered the conventional mould by offering visitors an exhilarating experience that goes beyond the ordinary.

According to Peaks Hotel CEO, Ben Mwarania, what sets Laikipia apart is its commitment to redefining the standards of luxury by offering guests an unmatched selection of high-end lodges, resorts, and boutique hotels that blend seamlessly with the surrounding natural beauty. 

This provides a harmonious and serene atmosphere for travellers seeking relaxation and tranquillity.

"Our aim is to create an environment that combines luxury with functionality. We want our guests to feel relaxed and comfortable in our premises, while also providing them with the perfect setup for productivity and creativity during their meetings and conferences," he said.

He added that one of the reasons the hotel has become a landmark for tourists in the region is its wide range of outdoor activities that foster team building, corporate learning, and personal growth, complementing the usual comforts of most high-end establishments.

“In addition to game drives, visitors both domestic and international can engage in a variety of exhilarating and physically demanding activities that will leave them with lasting memories,” he said.

Mwarania emphasized that Laikipia lags behind in terms of tourism due to inadequate promotion of Laikipia as a tourist destination in the country.

“People only talk about the Masai Mara and Mombasa circuits but forget what Laikipia has to offer, as stakeholders we want to unveil the extraordinary charm and unique experiences of Laikipia,” he said.

According to the resident instructor, Wilson Mawe, by providing a diverse range of outdoor options, hotels will attract a broader demographic and ultimately enhance the overall guest journey with memorable, immersive experiences.

“Beyond the luxurious accommodations, we bring the outdoors to life and a range of thrilling activities that promote team building, corporate learning, and self-evaluation. As guests revel in the beauty of nature while enjoying adventurous pursuits, we have set a new standard in hospitality, making every visit an unforgettable memory,” he said.
