The perfect combination of commercial livestock ranching and wildlife conservation
Lolldaiga Hills Ranch is a 200 km2 (49,000 acre) livestock ranch and wildlife conservancy. Located 20 km northwest of
Mount Kenya at an altitude of 1,700 – 2,300 m, the Ranch has outstanding views of Mount Kenya and the Aberdares. The Lolldaiga Range is an ancient land form, comprising of a series of magnificent high folding hills, cedar forests, open grassland and wooded
valleys. A well documented series of archaeological finds, cave paintings and burial mounds show
that the Lolldaiga Hills have been a treasured home since early mankind.
