Kenya Ol Pejeta Kicheche Laikipia family safari

Kicheche Laikipia

Simple but luxurious camp with excellent eco-credentials, in the heart of Kenya’s largest conservancy

Kenya Ol Pejeta Kicheche Laikipia family safari
Kicheche Laikipia

Kicheche Laikipia is located in the Ol Pejeta conservancy, Kenya’s largest, at 90,000 acres. This private wilderness is home to the largest population of black rhino in the country, thanks to the outstanding conservation efforts that continue to take place.

The camp is in the quiet wilderness zone of the conservancy, overlooking a pretty waterhole, which proves a magnet for wildlife in the dry season.

The six spacious tents are comfortable and luxurious inside, styled traditionally and tastefully to blend into the bush surrounds, with plenty of room to spread out. Each comes with an ensuite bathroom and private verandah. There is also a family unit that consists of two tents and two bathrooms. Meals are served in the mess area, often outside, and guests are encouraged to eat together in the evening to share stories over dinner and around the fire.

Activities in Ol Pejeta are numerous and the guides at Kicheche Laikipia are experts in their field, as with all properties run by the Kicheche team. As well as the usual game drives, guests can enjoy night drives in the conservancy, mountain biking trips, canoeing, horse-back rides, walking safaris and more. 

As Ol Pejeta has been such an outstanding conservation success, it’s worth paying a visit to the Sweetwaters chimpanzee sanctuary, the anti-poaching dog unit, and the white rhino sanctuary, which is home to the last remaining northern white rhino in the world.

If time allows, spending a few days at Kicheche Laikipia is a fantastic way to ease into a family safari, before heading to the Masai Mara. It’s the perfect spot to settle into Kenya, whilst still taking part in an abundance of activities.
