Governors’ Mugie House

With a planned opening at the end of 2019, Governors’ Mugie House will be the perfect addition to the Governors’ Camp Collection, expanding an already diverse array of wildlife locations and activities.


About Mugie House

Set on a private conservancy, Mugie House offers a myriad of activities by which to explore and enjoy its vast open landscapes and abundant wildlife.

Perched on a hill are nine individual stone cottages, each with sweeping views of the Laikipia landscape. A large main house with open log fires will host guests for relaxing cocktails and scrumptious meals, prepared from a creative menu with ingredients sourced from Mugie House’s own vegetable garden. An infinity pool offers lovely shaded areas and a casual alfresco dining area, while a large waterhole set in front of Mugie House attracts a variety of wildlife, including large elephant herds, throughout the day.

The location is Mugie Conservancy, a 40’000 acre private wildlife conservancy in Laikipia hosting an array of impactful community and conservation programs.

Securing land for wildlife is a key conservation imperative in Africa today and Mugie Conservancy provides a key wildlife 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, including key endemic northern Kenyan species such as Grevy’s Zebra, Jackson’s Hartebeet and Reticulated Giraffe.

Mugie Conservancy is at the forefront of conservation, operating as a low- impact cattle ranch alongside preserving the delicate and productive eco- systems that host abundant wildlife. Mugie supports cheetah and wild dog research with the Cheetah and Wild Dog Project, and lion research through collaring and monitoring with Lion Landscapes. Cutting edge community grazing programs and community empowerment projects through micro-economic assistance have encouraged engagement and investment from the local community in the conservation goals of Mugie.
