Wild Camping » Kicheche Camps » Masai Mara - Laikipia

Take an escorted game walk in one of Kenyan wildlife conservancies to camp in our private mobile campsite which has been set up specifically for your party.The following morning after breakfast take another walk back to camp (vehicle transfers also available).

Why Wild Camping

Wild camping is a perfect way to enjoy the wild in a timeless fashion. Man has been walking these plains for millennia. While on foot you can gather a true understanding of the bush as there is nothing to detach you from nature, our guides explain your surroundings from the smallest of signs to the largest land mammals. A wild camping trip brings you closer to nature and ideally complements your Kenya holiday experience.

Cooking under the stars is a bonding experience with the guides. It gives the adventurous safari traveler a sense of togetherness and makes one realize how the simplest things such as watching the sky, are forgotten in our modern world.


The walking will not be strenuous and there will be many intervals at various points of interest. For the Mara Wilderness, the distance covered will be approximately 10km (allow 3-4 hours) on the first day and 13km (allow 4-5 hours) on the second day. As the walk is run on an exclusive basis we are flexible and can reduce it if you feel you are not fit enough.

The Camp

A lightweight private fly-camp, staffed by a cook and a camp hand, will be set up in advance of arrival. Small dome tents for 2 pax are equipped with camp beds, bedrolls, chairs and a washstand. Basic bathroom facilities are available (long drop toilet and bush shower). A lightweight mess shelter will be used in the event of rain.

Laikipia Wild camping

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 vehicle will also escort you throughout the walk, which means that if not everyone is up for the whole distance, there is an option for anyone to jump into the vehicle at any time without disrupting the others who want to keep walking.

We did the fly camp...it was fantastic! We encourage everyone to do it.
James & Lauren - USA
The whole expedition was brilliantly executed. The staff were great company. The tent was adequate, comfortable and well appointed. You can’t beat the sounds of the bush at night.
Steve - UK
It was a lifetime safari experience. Having toast and tea in the morning and a hyena walking by, absolutely brilliant.
