Sitting on the rim of the Great Rift Valley, Laikipia is home to thriving private reserves, top-tier luxury accommodation, healthy populations of big game and awe-inspiring views sure to take your breath away.

Set on the private Mugie Conservancy, Governors’ Mugie House is a 5-star home away from home nestled in a prime and unique location. The charming stone cottages sit on a hill overlooking the rolling Laikipia plains and exude a warm, inviting air that feels as familiar and comfortable as your own place. It’s the ideal base from which to explore the vast landscape and encounter the abundant wildlife roaming the area.

Mugie House offers an exceptional African safari experience. No two days are the same and there is a variety of exciting activities to keep you entertained. Day and night drives take you through the conservancy in search of big game, time spent in the hide provides the opportunity to photograph visitors to the watering hole, while the Mugie Dam is the perfect spot to do some kayaking. Best of all, you can interact with Tala, Mugie House’s resident giraffe.

A safari holiday isn’t only about game drives and animal tracking. When not out searching for big game, Mugie House offers a wide range of activities to keep you entertained or to help you unwind. A swimming pool is available for those looking to cool off or catch a tan, while an on-site spa room offers a wide range of treatments to relax body and mind. The still waters of the Mugie Dam are perfect for kayaking and the nine-hole golf course is great for a quick round. Before you leave, don’t forget to visit the gift shop to pick up some mementos to commemorate your African safari adventure.


Mugie House’s creative menu offers delectable dishes prepared with ingredients sourced from its very own vegetable garden. Indulge in scrumptious meals worthy of any 5-star menu while surrounded by the tranquillity of nature. Meals can be taken poolside, for an alfresco dining experience, or in the main house. And for an added twist, picnics and bush meals can be arranged in scenic locations around the conservancy.
