Eldoret- City Of Champions

Sports

The Home Of The World’s Greatest Athletes

Eldoret is a town in western of Rift Valley Region lying 2100 metres above sea level at the airport to more than 2700 metres in nearby areas (7000–9000 feet).

The population was 193,830 in 1999 and it is currently the fastest growing town in Kenya, and currently the 5th largest in Kenya.

The name "Eldoret" is based on the Maasai word "eldore" meaning "stony river" because the bed of the nearby Sosiani River is very stony. The white settlers decided to call it Eldoret to make it easier for them to pronounce it.

Eldoret is the hometown of numerous legendary Kenyan runners, the most renowned of whom is Kipchoge Keino. The high altitude is an ideal training ground for many middle and long distance athletes. The runners from Eldoret have contributed significantly to the economy of Eldoret town from their winnings in races all over the world.

Eldoret is also surrounded by a very agricultural area, and for this reason is home to many farmers.

The town is now home to a large market, Moi University and Eldoret International Airport. It is also known for its cheese factory. Major industries include textiles, wheat, pyrethrum and corn. The town has a number of factories.

During  the colonial era, the area was occupied by the Nandi, before that by the Maasai and before that the Sirikwa.

Kenyan athletes, the likes of the legendary Kipchoge Keino and Henry Rono, decades ago set the bar high and established the country’s prowess as an athletics powerhouse.

Ever since, Kenya has become a gold mine for world beating champion athletes and runners.

 

Sports Tourism

This fertile ground for the development of world beating athletes has created an international phenomenon, as many runners across the world seek to come and discover the source of Kenya’s athletic prowess.

Eldoret town which attracts world best athletes to come and train with Kenya’s best runners.

Sports tourism is the largest export from Eldoret and its environs .There are several high altitude training camps in the Great Rift Valley and Central Kenya attract many international athletes, yearning to share in a little of that which builds Kenya’s runners.

Some of the big names that have set camp in Iten, Kenya in preparation for major athletic meets such as the Olympics are Britain's Paula Radcliffe and Mo Farah

The Exclusive Laikipia

Laikipia

Laikipia District is located on the Equator in the Rift Valley Province of the country.. Laikipia is a vast expanse of wild country in the central highlands of Kenya - it covers almost 2 million acres and runs from Mt Kenya in the East to the Rift Valley in the west.

Ranging from the foothills of Mt Kenya towards the north and west, the vegetation varies from indigenous forest to rock, arid scrub and steep river valleys.

 

Laikipia Conservancy

This spectacular region is considered the gateway to Kenya’s wild Northern frontier country. Wild and sparsely populated, much of Laikipia is covered by large privately owned ranches.

On most ranches cattle share the land with free ranging wildlife. In recent years this wildlife has become a valuable asset, with many ranches now establishing guest houses, homestays and private camps within their boundaries.

Centred on the original Laikipia National Reserve, this area has become a sanctuary for Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, and a wealth of plains game, including many endemic Northern species.

Laikipia has become a focus for many conservation efforts, and some ranches have become breeding sanctuaries for Rhinoceros.

 

Climate

This area sees relatively little rainfall but can be deceptively cold at night during certain times of the year.

The district has a cool, temperate climate with both rainy and dry seasons.

 

The People & Culture

The Kikuyu form about 60% of the population, with the balance composed of several other ethnic communities, including Laikipia Maasai, Samburu, Meru, Borana, Kalenjin, Somali, European, Asian, and Turkana,

Economic activity in the district consists mainly of tourism and agriculture, chiefly grain crops, ranching and greenhouse horticulture.

 

How to Get To Laikipia

This area of wilderness is accessible by road from Nanyuki, Baringo, Eldoret or Isiolo. It is important to remember that many of the ranches and the roads therein, are privately owned. Some ranches allow day visitors with their own transport, others do not. Visitors should always make enquiries in advance.

If you are visiting a ranch with your own private transport, ask for directions and preferably a map, in advance.

Many ranches and sanctuaries have their own airstrips, which can be used by charter aircraft. Most ranches will arrange to transfer guests directly by air or road from Nairobi or any other destination, as part of their service.

 

Where to Stay in Laikipia

There are various types of accommodation from small lodges, to tented amp and villas.
