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.

Although located on the Equator, the camp is at an altitude of 6000 ft. Please note that mornings and evenings can be cold due to the influence of the mountain.

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 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

If you are keen in experiencing something different and love walking then you don’t want to miss this opportunity. You will be escorted by an armed ranger from Ol Pejeta, along with a Kicheche Silver guide and spend the night in a very private mobile campsite with beautiful views over the Aberdares. As the walk is run on an exclusive basis we are very flexible, and you can walk for as little or as long as you would like.

A lightweight private fly-camp will be set up in advance of arrival. Small dome tents for 2 people are equipped with camp beds, bedrolls and a washstand. Basic bathroom facilities will be set up for you, with a long drop toilet and lovely hot bush showers.

Remote fine dining at its best

The most delicious food made to keep any guest’s appetite happy, prepared daily using only the finest locally sourced fresh ingredients.

Laikipia is famous for the creative cuisine the chefs prepare. From starter to dessert, from outstanding bush breakfast with different selections every day to the sundowner snacks, they offer a feast for the gourmets.

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.
I would change absolutely nothing about my stay at Kicheche Laikipia; everything was perfect. The food was delicious and varied, the rooms were exceptionally designed and very private (each tent was in a separate clearing in the trees, with a lovely view of a watering hole), and the staff truly anticipated every need.
Wow! That describes it all. Simon - If you want to see something, he knows how to find it, and he did! Staff – amazing, friendly and attentive. All of our needs/wants were taken care of 100%. Thanks! An experience of a lifetime! Thanks for making everything so wonderful! I can’t wait to come back!
