Kenya’s Community Conservancies are a sustainable model of wildlife conservation. Since the global collapse of tourism however, the funding of these conservancies has sharply declined and the ever-lurking menace of poaching, bush meat hunting and encroachment is returning and growing rampantly.

Kenya’s Community Conservancies are a sustainable model of wildlife conservation and a benchmark for tourism. Many of you have appreciated the biodiversity and the variety of species supported by these protected lands first-hand, returning year after year to get your safari fix from the hills, luggas and plains that have become your own back yard. 25% of our revenue funds the guardianship, protection and maintenance of 250,000 acres of the finest wildlife habitat in the world, but since the global collapse in tourism, that funding has sharply declined.

Without your support, the ever-lurking menace of poaching, bush-meat hunting and encroachment cannot be kept at bay. Currently our Conservancies of Mara North, Olare Motorogi, Mara Naboisho and Ol Pejeta need you more than ever.

Nature never halts is a common phrase but if threatened, it just might.

Our Solution

Kicheche and our neighbouring communities are working tirelessly on a plan for the next year, to ensure our conservancies remain secure and intact despite the dramatic drop in tourist arrivals.

Conservancy Guardians

We are initiating the Conservancy Guardians  appeal, concentrating solely on covering critical conservancy costs: rangers salaries, welfare and medical, predator monitoring and patrol costs.

Credit the Conservancy

This scheme assists us in underwriting conservancy land leases for a year, so the priceless conservancy birthright remains intact. By paying a conservation contribution of $750 (or more) to us now, you will receive a credit of the SAME value on your next Kicheche safari.

Kicheche has been at the vanguard of these Conservancies since inception and in this moment of need is backing them wholeheartedly. We will ride this out together, as we have always been in this for the long run.

A heartfelt thank you..

.. for the many who have generously contributed to our appeal. It is a big task but with your help we will succeed. Almost a thousand acres are now protected for a year. One camp cannot protect it all but every acre is priceless.

Blessed, that’s my feeling after 5 spectacular days and nights in this naturally abundant environment with hospitality second to none. Many thanks for giving us a greater understanding/reminder of the interconnectedness of all life.
Glenn - Australia
As you step off the plane to be greeted by one of the amazing guides, you feel as though you are at a home away from home. As you drive up to camp, Darren and Emma greet you with the warmest smiles and you start to laugh. For so long as you are there, you can immerse yourself in the amazing wildlife of the Mara wanting for nothing and forget all your cares.
Ros - UK
It’s no easy haul getting from Vancouver to the camps, but when you’re greeted with warm hugs it makes all the air miles vanish. There really is a very unique and special atmosphere at your camps – we just feel so at home.
