Tapendoi Farm

Tapendoi Farm

Tapendoi Farm nestles on the border of Lolldaiga Ranch, with no fence between them and the conservation area. It has magnificent views of the riverine forest, the Lolldaiga hills and it's abundance of wildlife.
The main house has 2 comfortable double rooms. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and the guest room has a double four poster bed and a small shower room across the courtyard. There's also 2 luxury safari tent guest rooms in the garden just a short walk from the main house. The tents are large with stunning views and privacy.
You can sip your tea in the morning watching the colobus monkeys swinging in the trees and eagles swooping by. At night you can enjoy a sundowner by the fire on the veranda and listen to the sounds of the African night. There is plenty to do around the Farm, and Daisy can organise your entrance fee into the Lolldaiga ranch and other surrounding conservation areas. Tapendoi is within easy driving distance of many conservation areas, including Lewa, Borana, Mount Kenya, Ol Pejata and El Karama, so there is never a shortage of things to do whilst staying at Tapendoi

Wildlife


The greatest conservation success of the region remains with the black rhino, almost half of Kenya's entire population can be found in this area. Laikipia is a real up-and-comer on the African safari circuit, with an impressive diversity of unique species, not to mention home to the famous Big 5. Encounter elephants, big cats (often collared for research purposes), buffalo, Grevy's zebra, numerous antelope and more recently, an increasing wild dog population. Laikipia consist of a mix of high altitude grassland, dotted with rocky outcrops, low lying bush and patches of riverine forest.
