Kicheche Families
Expanding their horizons
While the whole ethos of Kicheche is based around a small camp sharing safari experiences, we understand that after a whole year of work and often stress back home, it is nice for families to enjoy their bush retreat on their own sometimes.

LAIKIPIA ACTIVE
Natural Highs
Kicheche Laikipia is a great destination to do something different.  Visit the last remaining Northern White Rhinos on the planet, canoe on the little lake outside camp, have a wild experience walking and fly camping in the Lolldaigas, jump from the waterfall in the Ngare Ndare, horse ride in the rhino enclosure, cycle across the Ol Pejeta Plains…  A plethora of activity awaits!

A Cut-throat Business

In this week’s London Evening Standard there was a feature on the Mara’s nemesis: the Serengeti. Apart from some chintzy nonsense about jeweled salads and a farcical faunal faux pas about okapis butting horns (surely topis) it was none too shabby…

We Join with local peoples & partners to support traditional & sustainable ways of living in harmony with wildlife, ecosystems & the environment.

The combination of hosts, guides, staff and not to forget the wildlife meant that my expectations were exceeded massively. As close to perfect as it gets.

The staff made this holiday experience stand out. Their warmth and attentiveness was very high. Nelson was excellent as a guide. Each staff's role was carried out to an excellent standard. The facilities are thoughtfully laid out and combine privacy with communal living... Excellent emphasis on being eco-friendly too and supporting local community, which is vital. Thank you ! Asante Sana!

All I can say about Kicheche is it’s all about quality over quantity, not just the camp but the people as well, its second to none. You can tell the standards have been set very high and everyone and everything goes above and beyond.
