Activities at Kicheche Laikipia

Baraka (The blind Rhino) Visit

Black rhino Baraka lives in what used to be Morani’s 100-acre enclosure, carrying the flag for his predecessor. Baraka was born in the wild in Ol Pejeta, but lost sight in both eyes due to a fight and then a cataract. Baraka now lives in the enclosure, located next to the Morani Information Centre, for his own safety, and has taken to his new role as rhino ambassador.

Canoeing

Canoeing

The little lake in from of Kicheche Laikipia Camp offers the unique opportunity of canoeing just
in the middle of the reserve with a chance of viewing the animals coming to drink.

Inclusive in our package rate (Maximum 2 pax)

Chimpanzee visit

Enjoy a unique opportunity of viewing chimpanzees and learn more about the day to day care of the chimpanzees in our care. Chimpanzees are not indigenous to Kenya and Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary is the only
place to see them in Kenya.

Endangered Species Enclosure

The last remaining animals of this species were translocated to Ol Pejeta and it is hoped will create the nucleus of a successful breeding program. In addition to the Northern White Rhino with the last 3 remaining in the world, it is home to a number of endangered species including the locally threatened Jackson’s hartebeest and Grevy’s zebra. It is possible to visit the enclosure during your visit at Ol Pejeta Conservancy.

Per Person enclosure entrance: US$ 40.00 (Min 2 pax)

Game walk

A different perspective is gained through escorted walks on the savannah. Our interpretive guides will point out the spoor of a leopard, the nest of a rare bird or signs of recent migration activity that would pass unnoticed by the eyes of strangers.

Horse Riding

Horse Riding

Take a morning or an evening ride within the
600-acre Endangered Species Enclosure, accompanied by knowledgeable staff on Ol Pejeta’s safari horses. These rides will take you on a journey through a predator-free area set aside by Ol Pejeta for the recovery of the northern white rhinoceros.
$50pp
