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.

Kicheche Laikipia is located in one of the most picturesque terrain with a view of Mount Kenya. I’ve had the most wonderful stay here, asante sana to Louise, Andrew (camp managers) and everyone at Kicheche for their hospitality. They have a fabulous team, thank you to William for making great honey and I wish him all the best to becoming a guide. Simon (my guide) was super, very knowledgable and personable. The game viewing is very good at Ol Projeta Conservancy and I would recommend visiting Chimp Sanctuary set up by Conservationist Jane Goodall as well as the Northern White Rhino sanctuary. The game drives are amazing, especially sunrise with the view of Mount Kenya in the background. I saw the Big 5 all at Kicheche; Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhino - it was a superb start to the trip. Food at Kicheche Laikipia is Devine - compliments to the chefs. I would recommend to others, it’s very well organised and you’re always kept informed every step of the way. Thank you everyone. More information — — — — — Atmosphere: This camp provide a warm, cosy, relaxing and homely atmosphere. Nice gathering and group feeling. Features: 6 tents in total with en-suites, solar powered (ideal for charging phones and cameras only). There’s hot water, best to take a shower during the afternoon. Complimentary laundry service, drinks (including alcohol and juices) and Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi is in the main reception camp only, however it’s great to have a digi-break once in a while. Food: Picnic breakfast (cooked on your last day), lunch and dinner. There’s plenty of snacks throughout your stay - put on those stretchy trousers! Shop: There’s a shop on site, sells souvenirs - items made by local community, fleeces, caps and more. Travel/Transportation: I traveled with Safari Link and landed in Kamok-Nanyunki from Nairobi-Wilson airport. Kicheche will organise a dedicated driver to take you to and from the airstrip.

Beautiful Camp. We felt at home straight away. So at home that we took over their kitchen to cook instant noodles that we brought along,when we missed asian food. Don't get me wrong,the food at the camp was very good, but we just had cravings ... and Louise made sure that craving was satisfied. A note to other Asian visitors.... if you email at least 2-3 weeks before arrival, they may even be able to arrange to stock up on the noodles and you don't have to bring your own! Hosts Louise and Andrew were friendly and took great care of us. Splodge the resident dog kept the 9 year old amongst us very entertained indeed. Little Richard and Big Richard were great guides. They worked really hard to make sure we saw everything we wanted to see and refused to let us lift a single finger to help set up for breakfast in the bush. It was our 2nd trip to Africa. After our stay at Kicheche camps ( we stayed at Mara North and Laikipia), there may just have to be a 3rd trip. We miss it already! Thank you Kicheche Laikipia. We had a wonderful time!.

Kicheche Laikipia exceeded all expectations with luxury accommodation captured in canvas overlooking an attractive watering hole . The standard of guide was quite excellent and the food consistently high quality . It took me some time to explain the delights of scotch eggs for breakfast to our American co travellers but they were won over by the taste. The guides were all well qualified and knowledgeable and seemed to have a huge depth of knowledge of Flora and Fauna . It did take a good 24 hours to get in to the Safari timetable but once there we were truly smitten . We continued with this company to the Mara and the standards were consistently high in both camps .

What a beautiful little camp set in the Ol Pejeta conservancy. This little gem of a place far exceeded our expectations. The rooms were spacious and overlooked the waterhole from where we could view the wide array of bird life, the buffalos and impala coming in for a drink, and also a little family of elephants who happened to be passing through. The food was scrumptious, and the service from all the staff was fantastic. Special thanks to William and Juma for looking after our baby whilst we enjoyed the amazing meals. Andrew and Louise and the entire team made us feel right at home and we did not want to leave. We will definitely be staying at kicheche again.

We stayed at this camp on our recent (November 2018) trip to Kenya. It is really lovely. The "tents" are very nice and well appointed. The food is very good (a little fancier than I would order at a restaurant) and foodies will love it. Louise was the camp host--she was great fun and is interested in everyone's story. Great conversation was had at meal times. Her dog, Splodge, was very well behaved & fun to have around. Our guide, "Young Peter" (there are two Peter's who guide) was fabulous. He asked each day what we'd like to see/look for. He was great company and his knowledge of the flora and fauna was impressive.
