Kicheche Laikipia is a very comfortable and intimate tented camp overlooking a large water hole in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in the Laikipia region of central Kenya.
Kicheche Laikipia is an excellent camp offering good value for money and a superb wildlife experience. The spacious tents offer a good level of comfort, without being overly luxurious, and have small touches which make your stay all the more comfortable. The comfort of the tents is matched by the friendliness of the staff who will look after your every need. As with all the Kicheche camps, the level of guiding is excellent and the ambiance is warm and welcoming.
Ol Pejeta Conservancy is not the wildest destination in Kenya but is a great conservancy for game viewing and a stronghold for both black and white rhino. We feel Kicheche Laikipia is particularly well suited to travellers on their first safari to East Africa, but the camp can equally well cater for more experienced photographers and wildlife enthusiasts.
