Breaking Barriers

As we celebrate #MenstrualHygieneDay, it's time to build a #PeriodFriendlyWorld where girls can easily access affordable menstrual products to reach their fullest potential.

Empowering Communities

We join local peoples for wildlife conservation and economic empowerment. Together we support traditional and sustainable ways of living in harmony with wildlife, ecosystems and the environment.

Built to Last

It's game on for another season across four Conservancies and our four Kicheche camps. Fortunately, we were spared any damage during the reported rains last month. We were keen to help by donating towards relief projects in Nairobi and the Masai Mara. As the sun shines again, our camp teams are fired up following a fantastic pre-season pow-wow with our camp managers, head chefs, and guides. In this forum, we exchanged our thoughts and ideas and introduced new initiatives to drive the Kicheche guest experience to new levels.

And Rest…

At around seven thirty last Tuesday as the nasturtium sky finally dimmed, Charles Wandero carefully nosed his cruiser into the Bush Camp covered lot, before finishing his vehicle's paperwork. He sighed, peacefully, then took the keys to the office before berthing his weathered optics in their felt case where they will lay in convalescence for six weeks. Charles smiled, just as Peter was doing in Laikipia and Saruni at Mara Camp to say nothing of Esther at Valley. The storms of January were distant memories and they all chuckled with a demob satisfaction. They deserve their rest but will be champing to return at the start of the season. So will you be ...we hope.

BARRETT HOMES

Meet Richard Barrett, it looks like he knows his F-Stops from his bus stops. Richard has spent a good chunk of this year across all of Kicheche's stable. Not for the first time either.

Mara North’s High Table

It used to be that only a Reserve lion coalition would take down hippos, some fifteen years ago. Not anymore. It appears that the Mara North River pride are developing a taste for this gargantuan meal and are hunting them when they ply their nocturnal grazing.

Twala Time

'I've been on seven safaris, but Kicheche Valley Camp is the only one I've ever returned to' so spoke the charming Amy Battis as she arrived at Kicheche's Naboisho stronghold for the second time.

Ups and Downs

An open Boscia tree in the heart of Naboisho Conservancy. Short grass, two leopards and Sankuet being rather greedy with two Thomson's kills. Unfortunately with a cub as boisterous and mischievous as this young five-month-old scamp, accidents generally happen.

Natural Highs

When lions escort you to dinner you know you are doing something right. Ola and Chris have kindly shared the album of their time in the high plains of Kicheche Laikipia, guided by the genius that is Peter Kariuki.
