Kicheche Laikipia Camp
is located in the Laikipia South
area of north-central Kenya
Ol Pejeta is a 400 square kilometre fenced wildlife conservancy which forms part of a critical buffer zone between the heavily populated arable farmland of central regions and the wilder ranges to the north.
Situated on the much quieter western side of the conservancy, Kicheche Laikipia Camp is a traditional camp with a comfortable tented mess and several large guest tents, all overlooking an artificial dam.
Activities include vehicle safari and walking safari inside the conservancy, plus visits to the chimpanzee and rhino sanctuaries. Tracking radio-collared lions and horse-back safari may also be possible.
The main potential downsides are that Ol Pejeta is a fully fenced reserve, with human habitation and the town of Nanyuki in close proximity. The reserve is rather tame and over-managed and suffers from high visitor traffic, although it is more quiet on the western side. The chimpanzee sanctuary here is particularly poor. The camp itself is relatively outodoorsy.PricesTrips
