The UK High Commission in Kenya have updated their travel advice for Kenya to include Laikipia.

The new advice states that following an extended period of drought, there has been an increase in armed incursions on to private farms and wildlife conservation areas in the county of Laikipia in central Kenya.

The update also states that some foreign visitors have been caught up in the armed incursions.

Laikipia County is one of the 47 counties of Kenya. It is located on the Equator in the former Rift Valley Province of the country.

The county has two major urban centres: Nanyuki to the southeast, and Nyahururu to the southwest and its capital is Rumuruti.

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

The county encompasses the high, dry Laikipia Plateau, and has a cool, temperate climate with both rainy and dry seasons.
