By Maria Dodds
Consultant and safari guide

Enjoy a round of golf at Mugie Conservancy’s nine-hole golf course. It’s the only one of its kind this far north in Kenya and although the climate is so hot and dry in Laikipia, it has beautifully-manicured greens surrounded by trees. The owners are passionate golfers and have expanded the course from a modest three holes to a nine-hole, 18-tee course complete with friendly caddies and a bar at the end where you can sit back with a drink.

The golf course is home to a few impalas and other plains game but it’s protected by an electric fence to keep most animals out. You don’t just have to come for a round of golf either, you can go for a walk or jog around the three-kilometre running track. There’s excellent bird life there too and it’s just a great place to come if you’ve been cooped up in your car on game drives and are craving some exercise.
