Built on the edge of an escarpment, which drops 3,000ft into the Northern Frontier District, Laragai has breathtaking views.  Ol Lolokwe and Wamba Mountain dominate the far horizon to the north and Mount Kenya looms out of the clouds to the south. The house sits in the midst of a rich and colorful garden with opulent interiors incorporating fabrics imported from London, mirrors from Ireland, furniture handmade in Kenya and rugs from Rajasthan.  The result is a classically decorated yet comfortable home. 

A heated swimming pool with a deck overlooks a small dam that attracts herds of elephants, buffalo and often prides of lion.  Long lunches around the pool, which has its own bar, kitchen and bathroom, can be followed by a retreat to the shady alcoves for an afternoon siesta or a massage from Laragai’s beauty therapist.

All of the food is freshly prepared in the kitchen with as many of the ingredients as possible sourced from the kitchen garden and farm produce.  Juice, freshly squeezed from the fruit from the orchards, accompanies breakfast, a varying menu with plenty of choice for lunch and three-course dinners served at night in the dining room. Laragai boasts a clay tennis court (racquets & balls provided), games room, satellite TV, a large DVD library, a table-tennis room, croquet and boules.  The house has power 24-hours a day through an inverter system and Wi-Fi internet access throughout the house.

There is an enormous choice of activities from which to choose in an area of Kenya where the wildlife population is second only to the world-famous Maasai Mara. Explore the wild and beautiful landscape by vehicle, horse, foot or mountain bike, getting close to the wildlife in its natural habitat to spot game including reticulated giraffe, elephant, oryx, hartebeest and Grevy’s zebra.  Take a picnic lunch and spend the day in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, which hosts half of Kenya’s total population of endangered black rhino. Indulge in a helicopter flight to the remote northern regions defined by inaccessible ravines, spectacular rock formations, volcanic craters and saline water pools heaving with crocodiles and water birds.
