Ol Pejeta Conservancy
Kicheche Laikipia is the most luxurious bush camp in the 360 square kilometre Ol Pejeta Conservancy and offers a wide range of activities from rooms overlooking a dam. The conservancy lies on the Equator at 6000m above sea level with Mount Kenya forming an incredible backdrop to views.
The conservancy is home to the largest population of Black Rhino as well as Leopard, Lion, Elephant, Hippo and Buffalo. With just one bed for every 1500 acres this is one of the more remote and wild areas of Ol Pejeta.
The main guest area consists of a lounge and connected dining room with bar and fire-place for the cooler mornings and after dinner drinks. Furniture here has been made from Cedar wood fence posts that have been reclaimed from the land. The front section of this area opens out completely for excellent views of the dam and wildlife that come down to drink.
Kicheche Laikipia has just 6 very spacious and luxurious tents. All the tents have been raised off the ground with the furniture once again having been made from reclaimed wood of the old cattle ranch. A connected family tent has two rooms with a double bed and the second room two single beds.
A partition provides privacy in the en-suite bathroom that has twin vanity basins, toilet and shower. Each tent also has it’s own private deck with hammock and excellent views out over the waterhole.
As the camp is un-fenced game wanders around by day and night and most are very habituated towards their human visitors.
The camp is only one of a few that have achieved the Gold Eco Certificate for responsible use of resources, conservation and community investment.
