Ekorian's Mugie Camp Highlights

The anticipated opening of Ekorian’s Mugie Camp in Kenya is arriving on December 20th, 2012. Ekorian’s Mugie means "Olive Tree" in the Turkana language and is located on the Mugie Sanctuary near Mugie Dam at the northern end of the Laikipia Plateau near Mount Kenya, where opportunities for wildlife viewing and bird watching are abundant.
Mugie is one of the core study areas of the ‘Laikipia Predator Project’, a research study aimed at improving the conservation of large carnivores throughout Africa. Across most of Africa, people have eradicated predators such as lion, wild dog and hyena, largely because these animals are a threat to livestock. Laikipia District is one of the few areas where people, livestock and predators co-exist. By studying the threat that predators pose to peoples’ livelihoods, and the threat that human activities pose to predators, the aim is to identify techniques and animal husbandry management practices that can be used to reduce the drastic rate of decline in the numbers of these now endangered animals. Mugie continues to work closely with the ‘Laikipia Predator Project’ and visitors to Mugie may be able to join in tracking lion.

  • Ekorian's Mugie is named after Olive Tree in the Turkana language.

Ekorian's Mugie Camp Game Viewing and Activities

In addition to day and night game drives, walks, fly camping and fishing activities, there are optional extras on offer for guests staying at Ekorian's Mugie Camp. These include camel rides and golfing at Mugie Golf Course, which is one of Kenya’s northernmost golf courses designed by Kenya’s famous golf course designer, and is constructed as two-tier greens and is nestled among a grove of olive trees. It offers a challenge for even the most experienced golfer. Mugie Golf Course is fenced in from wildlife so that guests can enjoy a jog or a gentle stroll around the 3.5 km track to enjoy the views. Mugie Ranch is 46,000 acres but 22,000 acres has been set aside to create Mugie Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is home to around seventy species of mammal including lion, cheetah, leopard, buffalo, elephant, eland and hyena. There are many endangered species residing in Mugie including the Grevy’s Zebra and Jackson’s Hartebeest. In August 2009, the construction of an enormous 500 meter long dam wall was completed in the heart of the sanctuary. This is Kenya’s third largest private dam. The dam fulfills a vital role in providing water for the wildlife during times of drought. Migratory birds from as far away as Siberia are attracted to the dam and are among over 280 bird species found on Mugie. Bass and tilapia fishing is currently being introduced on the dam.
