Sightings of the Big Five on game drives are almost guaranteed.
There are a number of Lion prides in the area and established territories for the elusive Leopard around camp. On longer excursions into the wilderness, picnic lunches are taken along on game drives.
A Masai Mara safari at Entim is special in that there's really no obligation to go out on game drives. Guests can sit in comfort at camp and watch the animals passing right by. These spectacular views and the Entim hospitality will create lasting memories to relish. With only 10 guests’ tents, the camp is smaller than most camps as this means less distraction and more interaction with the environment.

A city that never seems to sleep, Nairobi has become one of Africa’s largest, and most interesting cities. The modern Nairobi is still the safari capital of the Africa. The city has not lost its sense of the past, with an excellent museum and the historical home of Karen Blixen, author of Out of Africa open to visitors. From the wildlife to the nightlife, Nairobi is a city unlike any other. With a fantastic music scene, excellent international restaurants and an endless and colourful array of shops and markets, there is plenty on offer for the visitor. This is not just a modern capital separated from the great wilderness that surrounds it and just outside the city is Nairobi National Park, 113 sq kms of plains, cliffs and forest.
Wild and sparsely populated, much of Laikipia is covered by large privately owned ranches which supports seven heavily protected rhino sanctuaries, which together hold over half of Kenya’s black rhino population. On most ranches cattle share the land with free ranging wildlife. The private game reserves offer exclusive nature and wildlife experiences far away from the beaten path and in diverse scenery - from the edge of the Great Rift Valley, to the peaks of snow-capped Mount Kenya, with vast plains and verdant grasslands, interspersed with rocky hills, rivers, and waterholes.
Laikipia is home to more endangered wildlife than anywhere else in East Africa, protecting half of Kenya’s black rhino, and guests can enjoy particularly diverse safari experiences, with game drives, bush walks, horse riding and multi-day walking & camel trekking safaris.
The diversity of mammals is higher than any other area with elephant, rhino, Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Lelwel hartebeest, wild dog and large numbers of other large predators. Some of the activities include: Wildlife related activities (day and night), walking, hiking, fishing, mountain climbing, mountain biking, camel and horse riding and fly camping. Guests can enjoy activity holidays or simply retreat from the world.
