About Kicheche Laikipia Camp
Situated in the heart of the famous Ol Pejeta Conservancy sits the intimate camp of Kicheche. The Conservancy is home to Kenya's largest population of black rhino together with large numbers of elephant, cheetah, lion and plains game. Due to is location on the Equator you will also be able to see a number of rarer northern species of animals including the Grevys zebra, Jacksons hartebeest and Beisa oryx. The park also offers wonderful views of Mount Kenya.
With just six tents overlooking a waterhole with an abundance of game visiting daily. Each tents has en-suite bathrooms with flushing toilets and hot showers. The communal lounge area is spacious joining the dining area, however the camp prefers to serve meals alfresco if the weather permits.
Activities available include game drives in both the day and night as well as walking. Time can be spent with the Lion Tracking Programme which monitors lions in the area, some of which have been collared to allow guests to track the lions with a portable satellite dish and send the data back to the study centre on the Conservancy. The Conservancy is also home to a Chimpanzee Sanctuary, here children and adults alike can observe and learn about chimpanzees and the struggles they face in the wild.
