Kicheche Laikipia is a small camp located in the heart of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, at the foot of Mount Kenya and right on the equator. The camp is nestled into the edge of an indigenous forest and overlooks a permanent waterhole.
Accommodation & Facilities
Kicheche Laikipia has six large and well appointed tents with en-suite bathrooms and generous verandahs providing great views over the waterhole and Mount Kenya. Each tent also has a hammock. There is a dining and lounge tent, although meals are frequently taken outside.
Wildlife & Activities
The conservancy is home to Kenya’s largest population of black rhino, large numbers of elephant, cheetah, lion, leopard and plentiful plains wildlife. There are also a number of rarer Northern species such as reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, Jackson’s hartebeest and Beisa oryx. Mountain biking, canoeing, walks and night drives are possible in addition to daytime game drives. It is also possible to arrange horse riding, for which there will be an additional cost.
