Had such a wonderful time. Unfortunately this set such a high standard for glamping that I am not sure anything else will compare.

the camp

An eco-award-winning small luxurious tented camp nestled in the shadows of Mount Kenya at the foot of an indigenous forest overlooking a waterhole. The camp’s squeaky green safari chic marries beautifully and sensitively with the natural highs of her surrounds in the wilderness zone of Ol Pejeta.

Ol Pejeta Conservancy

With 90,000 acres of wilderness, the Conservancy is home to Kenya’s largest population of Black Rhino, large numbers of elephant, cheetah, lion, leopard, African wild dog and plentiful plains game. There are also a number of the rarer Northern species such as Grevys Zebra, Jackson’s Hartebeest and Beisa Oryx.

The Conservancy lies on the Equator 30 minutes drive from Nanyuki airstrip and affords wonderful views of Mt Kenya


There is an extensive range of activities available and there is an outstanding guiding team to look after you in the field.

The camp is in the low vehicle density wilderness zone of the conservancy and the wildlife viewing is a very private and rewarding activity. Not only is this East Africa’s largest black rhino sanctuary there is also a myriad of other wildlife to be seen including elephant, lion, cheetah, wild dog and abundant plains game. Ol Pejeta Conservancy also permits Night Game Drives which focus on species not seen on regular day drives.

While in Ol Pejeta, you can visit the Morani Center and the endangered species enclosure with the last remaining Northern White Rhinos on the planet, the chimpanzees sanctuary, or pay a visit to the anti-poaching dogs. (some activities at a fee). For the more active visitors, canoeing, horse riding, mountain biking and bush walks.

Laikipia Wild Camping

Add an extra day to your stay and travel outside Ol Pejeta Conservancy into the stunning Lolldaiga Hills offering excellent walking terrain. 49,000 acres of wilderness from cedar forests to open grasslands and valleys, outstanding views, 104 mammals, 385 bird species.

You will be escorted by a Kicheche guide and overnight in a mobile campsite. Back the following day for lunch at Kicheche Laikipia.

what our clients say

Food was amazing! We are both vegetarian and were astonished each mealtime by the inventiveness of the chef. We ate no processed food at all while we were there and left feeling very healthy indeed. The presentation of both the food and the dining table would not have been out of place at a top London restaurant.
Sarah - UK
Traveling as a single female can be intimidating. The staff at Kicheche Laikipia were beyond exceptional. They made me feel so welcomed and safe and accorded me the best vacation of my life!
Meghan - USA
We feel truly lucky we were able to come to such a special place for our honeymoon. You really went above and beyond with the champagne on arrival and the dinner in our tent on the last night. The Kicheche experience was absolutely exceptional and we will always cherish our time here. Thank you!
