GAME DRIVES
Explore our wilderness
Explore our wilderness watching wildlife at close range, but without encroaching. Conservancy safaris are unlike anywhere else with off-road driving permitted and limits on vehicles. Our silver qualified guides belong to the top 5% in Kenya and their instincts and experience will provide superb wildlife opportunities whether you are photographer or animal enthusiast. Our customized 4WD vehicles are designed to give perfect views on safari whether your quarry is elephants, buffalo, impala or our fabled predator population. Mara Conservancies are the only area in East Africa where lion numbers are growing, this is not by co-incidence.

FAMILY SAFARIS
Expanding your kids' horizon
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 African safari retreat on their own sometimes.

Very few things taste better than freshly harvested organic vegetables and herbs, which is why Kicheche grow them, delivering them onto plates moments after picking.

K Rooney Esq. we make no apologies for the overuse of the above headline, it just fits so snugly and, as this is not a written version of Just a Minute, repetition is not penalised, it is just flattery.

What a life changing safari experience to an amazing destination with such warm staff who spend their lives fulfilling the dreams of each of their guest. I left with such a sad heart, but with the hope and dream to someday return to this magical place which changes each of us, one at a time ...forever. Keep up your wonderful work!
