El Karama Eco Lodge is an owner operated lodge that feels like a home away from home. The lodge is located in the heart of Laikipia, Kenya, on El Karama, a 14,000 acre cattle ranch with stunning landscapes and abundant wildlife and birds. Guests can enjoy direct views of Mt Kenya, the Aberdares and the Lolldaiga hills. We are only 42km from Nanyuki town.
Our aim as a company is to operate a small, world class, sustainably run tourism operation that positively impacts the environment, wildlife and people of this area, thus protecting this habitat as a storehouse of biodiversity for the future. We do this through use of renewal energy, responsible resource management, employment and local procurement strategies. We aim to showcase innovative technologies available here in Kenya including using 100% solar energy for all operations including, water harvesting/capture, biogas for cooking and an Eco Smarte swimming pool that uses neither chlorine or salt.
The lodge comprises six family/group friendly stone, thatch and canvas cottages or “bandas”, a beautiful central mess with large fireplace, bar and cosy reading areas – all over look the Ewaso Nyiro river and a natural salt lick. The lodge is hosted by an excellent team of local Kenyan staff and supported in the background by the Grant family who live there. Guests can enjoy accompanied bush walks, game drives, night drives, fly camping, sundowners, bush meals, kids activities and farm visits.
There are over 80 mammal species including lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, hippo, reticulated giraffe, common and Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, eland, oryx and much more. Bird species identified here number 411!
