Kicheche Laikipia

Kicheche Laikipia is a small eco-camp set in shady indigenous forest in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, with iconic Mount Kenya as a backdrop.

There are just 6 luxury ensuite tents overlooking a waterhole at this award-winning property, in an area which hosts just one bed per 1,500 acres, so your safari experience is sure to be an incredibly personal one.

A large tent with an interconnecting dining and lounge area contains a fireplace and library. While meals can be enjoyed here, breakfast and lunch are often consumed outdoors when the weather permits.

A day at Kicheche Laikipia begins early, with a game drive at sunrise. Return to camp for breakfast, with time to relax and read, before departing on another outing late in the afternoon. Enjoy sundowners around the campfire before savouring dinner by candlelight al fresco or in the dining tent. Escorted walks are also possible as are night-time game drives. The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is home to Kenya’s largest population of black rhino as well as a number of endangered species such as Jackson’s hartebeest and Beisa oryx.
