The Centre Bandas are an alternative for those who want to enjoy the conservancy on a lower budget. They are perfect for large family gatherings, group trips, team-building workshops (which we can organize) and specific interest groups such as bird-watchers, volunteers, and researchers.
They are located in the center of the conservancy, with easy access to community and conservation projects and are near our offices. The Gallmann Memorial Foundation and Laikipia Nature Conservancy teams operate from here so you will really feel like you are close to the heart of conservancy activities.
Most nights buffalo, elephant and sometimes lion can be seen and heard. We have had many family groups here also, who have had a lot of fun.
There are 10 Bandas, each with 2 large single beds and a verandah. Bathrooms are simple with long drops and bucket showers. There are further solar heated showers outside under the stars.
Outside there is a cozy communal area, with a hearty fire, where guests gather to recount stories of the day’s adventures.
If needed, there is further accommodation for another 30 people in simple dorms nearby.
We can offer the bandas on a full board or self catering basis.
