- Game Drives
Located north of Nanyuki, near the Lolldaiga Hills, Enasoit is a luxury tented camp in Kenya’s wildlife-rich Laikipia highlands. The camp is an enchanting exclusive property, catering for only one group of guests at a time and offering a uniquely private safari experience. Enasoit guests have the camp and surrounding wildlife reserve all to themselves – an ideal retreat for families and groups of friends.
An Enasoit safari offers remarkable wildlife encounters and an array of exciting ways to experience the wilderness. One of the most distinctive features of the camp is the extraordinary wildlife activity at the waterhole, located just in front of the main Mess Tent – the perfect viewpoint for wildlife viewing from the comfort of an armchair.
Guests can explore the reserve on horseback, on foot, or by vehicle always accompanied by one of our experienced guides, or they can watch the wildlife wander past from their verandah – enjoying both the tranquility and thrill of a safari without seeing any other visitors.
