Governors’ Mugie

Set on a private conservancy, Governors’ Mugie offers a myriad of activities by which to explore and enjoy Laikipia’s vast open landscapes and rare northern rangeland species.


About Governors' Mugie

Governors’ Mugie perfectly combines with our other properties, expanding an already diverse array of wildlife locations and activities. The location is Mugie Conservancy, a private wildlife conservancy in Laikipia of almost 50’000 acres hosting an array of impactful community and conservation programs.

Perched on a hill are eight stone cottages, each with sweeping views of the Laikipia landscape. A large main house with open log fires hosts guests for relaxing cocktails and delicious meals, prepared from a creative menu with ingredients sourced from our own vegetable garden. An infinity pool offers lovely shaded areas and a casual alfresco dining area, while a waterhole set in front of Governors’ Mugie attracts a variety of wildlife that comes to drink. Guests can also make the most of Mugie Conservancy’s nine-hole golf course, which is perfect for enjoying a round between travel companions or alongside other golf-loving guests of ours.

Securing land for wildlife is a key conservation imperative in Africa today and Mugie Conservancy provides an important access route between the Laikipia plateau, the Mathews Range and the Samburu lands to the north and east. Vast acacia-dotted savannahs, olive forests and scrubby bush are a haven to a multitude of wildlife in plentiful numbers. Endangered species that are endemic to these parts of Africa – such as Grevy’s zebras, Jackson’s hartebeests, beisa oryx and reticulated giraffes – can all be found here in good numbers.

Children of all ages are welcome at Governors’ Mugie.

Governors’ Mugie has been awarded a Silver Eco Rating from Eco-Tourism Kenya, due to our sustainable tourism practices.
