overview

Lying on the edge of an indigenous forest in the shadow of Mount Kenya, Kicheche Laikipia is an intimate and luxurious camp overlooking a well frequented waterhole. A setting in the private Ol Pejeta Conservancy ensures crowd-free game viewing while the design of this delightful lodge epitomizes the classic safari of a bygone age.

A stay at Kicheche is all about thrilling wildlife encounters. Head off on morning, afternoon and evening game drives in search of the Big 5 or go on lion tracking excursions as part of a predator research project. You can also visit the Chimpanzee Sanctuary for an up-close and insightful experience of our closest relatives and their plight in the wild.

Kicheche is also a camp for the outdoor-minded traveller who can choose from a wide range of activities that includes mountain biking, guided nature walks and canoeing.

Dining

Your guide awakens you each morning with a flask of tea or coffee and biscuits before you set off at sunrise for a game drive. The cool morning air sharpens your appetite for when you return to a wholesome and hearty brunch set in the shade of an olive tree. Alternatively, a picnic in a scenic spot away from camp offers an array of mouthwatering dishes to choose from while you admire the view.

After a relaxing afternoon in your suite or in the shade of a tree, a table loaded with treats for high tea awaits you before the afternoon activity. Afternoon game drives finish with sundowner drinks and snacks, usually enjoyed at a waterhole or viewpoint.

Returning to camp, sip on a pre-dinner cocktail in the lounge as delicious aromas waft from the kitchen before indulging in a sumptuous three-course meal, bathed in soft light from lanterns and a roaring fire.

Standard Tent

Six luxury tents are positioned with verandahs to maximize the views of the waterhole below. All are en suite with a shower, flush toilet and hot running water, and are tastefully decorated in an East African style. Mosquito netting keeps insects out but allows for a cooling breeze to pass through.

A family tent that sleeps up to four is also available.

"Located in a sensational Big 5 region this camp gets top marks on service. I love that the large tents are luxurious yet authentic. The food is outstanding but what will stay with you well after you have left is the staff/guides and hosts absolute warmth, wealth of knowledge and passion for what they do."
