With a name meaning ‘treasured possession’ or ‘answer to prayer’ in Arabic, El Karama, as it’s usually known, is a working cattle ranch and wildlife sanctuary on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River in the Laikipia region north of Mount Kenya. It was named for purely sentimental reasons by its owners, the Grant family, who still run the ranch and manage the lodge: a small, rustic retreat and the only lodge on the ranch.

Our view of El Karama Eco-Lodge

Our stay at El Karama was a revelation: we’ve known about this ranch-stay for years but never been there before. The welcome was one of the warmest we’ve experienced in Kenya; the food was exceptionally good; and the wildlife was outstanding. We loved the genuine, low-key hosting, the flexible approach to guests’ requirements and the warm and friendly staff.
