The Conservancy works to envision a future where people across Kenya value, protect, and benefit from wildlife.
The Morani wilderness is renowned for its elephant herds and fantastic scenery with great views of Mount Kenya. Its varied habitats of savanna and bushland offer regular sightings of plains game, hippo, giraffe, lions, and elephants. The area supports several rare northern species, such as Jackson’s hartebeest, Grevy’s Zebra, and Reticulated Giraffe. Even the endangered Wild Dog has returned to the area in healthy numbers after the 2007 Canine Distemper that wiped them out.
Morani Conservancy is one of the best places in Kenya to meet and learn about the Samburu culture and people, especially on walking Safari with Fly Camping options.

Wild Camping expedition at Morani Conservancy
A typical Wild Camping experience offers a private night out in the wilderness. The night is spent sitting around the campfire under a starry sky, cooking on the open fire, and joining in on conversations about the day’s events.
