Kicheche Laikipia is an eco-award-winning small luxurious tented camp nestled in the shadows of Mount Kenya at the foot of an indigenous forest overlooking a waterhole. The camp’s squeaky green safari chic marries beautifully and sensitively with the natural highs of her surrounds in the wilderness zone of Ol Pejeta.

Travelled here in mid June where we spent 3 fabulous nights in the camp. From our pick up at Laikipia Air strip to our departure I cannot fault the service we received from the staff at this camp. We were welcomed in by Emily and her team who strived to ensure everything was in order and just as we wanted throughout our stay. Nothing ever appeared to much trouble. The tent we were accommodated in had everything we needed and more. The beds were comfortable and the hot water bottle touch of an evening and fresh tea, coffee and cookies in a morning made it even more welcoming. Hot water was not an issue and towels and toiletries were supplied within. Laundry was done daily if required and returned the next day. A lovely touch when travelling light. I couldn't complain at the food which was provided morning, noon and night. Never did I feel I had a bad meal and I certainly never went hungry as they do like to ensure you are well fed. Our camp guide - Albert was superb. He knew his stuff about the Conservancy and the various animals located within it. He strived to get the best viewing spots and angles for photographs of the animals and didn't disappoint with what he delivered on. I would have no hesitations in returning to this camp in the future. The unique small and intimate setting of the camp certainly left a remarkable mark on me that I will never forget. I would highly recommend, it won't disappoint.

The food, staff, service, rooms and facilities are faultless. Louise and then Emily, the camp managers, are welcoming, friendly and so organised. Albert was a fantastic guide. He went above and beyond for my husband to get his photographic compositions. Food constantly amazes me in the high quality and fresh ingredients they are able to produce.

Stayed with Louise and her team end Jan and were fortunate enough to be the only guests at the camp with international travel slow to take off following COVID relaxations. Having been confined to UK for ~2 years it was bliss to be back in Africa, sharing our time with wonderful hosts, being treated like kings and queens and enjoying the peace, tranquillity and magic of this camp sitting on an active watering-hole offering lots of action from Eland to Buffalo to Elephant. The camp is well designed, beautifully maintained and very homely. Louise, the camp manager, couldn't have been a more engaging, friendly and at times funny host who went out of her way to get to know us and vice versa. In fact, one of the most genuine and sincere camp managers we've encountered. The food was some of the best we've experienced with lots of fresh, interesting and healthy ingredients offering light bites at lunch followed by a 3 course a la carte in the evening, as we sat opposite the roaring fire enjoying silver service and friendly banter with Louise. We went to Ol Pejeta Conservancy especially for the Rhino and weren't disappointed with the privilege of going to meet the remaining two Northern White Rhino and to hear about the breeding programme that will, hopefully, bring them back from the brink of extension. Albert, of guide, was nothing but accommodating with one of the highlights being a night drive where we got to experience three new `firsts' being Porcupine, White Tailed Mongoose and a Zorilla. Watching a Bush Baby bouncing along the ground was hysterical! Everything about this camp met or exceeded our expectations and being our first trip to Africa in ~2 years, and first ever to Kenya, we couldn't have been happier to have chosen Kicheche Laikipia. The star of the show was Louise who we found truly to be a warm, interesting and funny person and whom we left feeling like we'd known all our lives! Not to take away anything from the rest of the team who delivered great service always with a smile!

We loved the small size of the camp, only 5-6 tents… the delicious food… but over all we want to highlight the warm hospitality that manager Louise made us feel. She is in all little details. Always there, early in the morning, late at night, to make sure her guests are fine, the staff doing their work… logs in the fire, fresh flowers… superb! The hot chocolate she suggested to bring us at 6 am at our tent before leaving to a safari on such a cold day is unforgettable. Small details that makes you feel so taken care. Don’t hesitate, this is the lodge if visiting Samburu. Relax and enjoy!

My daughter, niece and I were absolutely delighted by our experience in this camp. Louise was a wonderful hostess and our driver George was a perfect guide for us, very knowledgeable about the area and the animals - we saw the big 5! The camp itself was very welcoming with the entire staff engaged in seeing that we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. The 3 person tent was just right for us, we loved eating lunch near the watering hole, and all the food was delicious. They also had a fantastic birthday celebration for my daughter’s 40th birthday! I would absolutely stay here again.

What a great camp in the Ol Pejeta conservancy! The tents were spacious, comfortable, overlooking a watering spot for wildlife. Andrew was helpful, informative, see to any need we had. Kudos to the chef and kitchen staff for providing excellent cuisine throughout our stay. The AM and PM game drives were spectacular! Saw Rhinos, lions, reticulated giraffes, elephants, etc. thanks to our capable guide Josphat. Nightly bonfires and cocktails were enjoyable, giving guests a chance to share experiences. Kicheche Laikipea is an impressive camp!

Loved this camp! People were wonderful, food outstanding while looking over a water hole where families of elephants, Cape buffalo and many other animals frequent. Nothing quite like eating your lunch watching a family of elephants taking a mud bath! We stayed in the family tent-so spacious, clean and a great deck to relax. Also went fly camping which was another incredibly flawless experience! Simon was our safari guide and he knew EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING in Africa. We learned so much and saw so much! Already planning our next trip!

Lovely small tented camp on a water hole in Ol Pejeta conservancy. The food was outstanding! Lunch was served overlooking the water and dinner was served in dining tent. Even though Kenta is on the equator, the altitude and Mt Kenya keep the temperature much cooler than expected. The camp provides nice warm ponchos and hot water bottles for chilly morning games drives. In addition to games drives, you can sign up for several conservation trips to see Northern white rhinos, chimpanzee rescue center and lion tracking. All are worthwhile.
