Owing to the fact that Sangare is not only a conservancy but a working farm, there is plenty to see or do.

Acting as a wildlife corridor between Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountain ranges, game drives around the Conservancy offer up a plethora of wildlife, with over more than 40 species of animals, 300 species of birds and 63 species of indigenous shrubs and trees. The landscape on Sangare is varied, too, from the Sangare Plains which stretch out into the distance, with Mount Kenya looming in the background, to the more rugged steep rocky outcrops and dense rainforest, that harbor one of Kenya’s most endangered and elusive antelopes, the Mountain Bongo.

The streams and rivers which criss-cross Sangare Conservancy are stocked with trout and anglers are encouraged, should they wish, to bring a rod and try their luck and, tight lines permitting, bring back a fish for supper. Those family members who are less - enthused by fishing can relax on the riverbank with a sumptuous picnic, take in the view and read a book.

For those of a more active persuasion, guided game walks offer a slower and more relaxed way of exploring the conservancy. Sangare’s birdlife is incredibly rich and a gentle amble is the perfect way to get up close and personal with so many species of birds, particularly in the riverine and forested areas. Out on the plains, the antelope and zebra barely lift their heads as guests walk by, so relaxed are they in their environment.

Horseriding offers another vantage point for exploring the scenery and wildlife on Sangare and can be arranged with prior notice.

There are plenty of schemes on Sangare Conservancy, from ranch management to charity projects and should there be an interest in this, ranch tours can be organized. Guests are also encouraged, should they want to, to discover more about the Bongo Surveillance Project, a very worthy cause to try and protect and educate the local population about the critically endangered and extremelty elusive Mountain Bongo, whose habitat in the montane forests around Kenya has dwindled to almost nothing.
