Fantastic Camp and Staff

This camp is situated in a very accessible area for prime wildlife viewing. The conservancy experience is an uncrowded area with great access to multiple species.

We following 5 lions defending their territory for most of a morning under the most beautiful sky with patches of clouds and stunning landscape. Our guide, Peter, was incredibly knowledgeable about everything we were seeing. the camp staff lead by Louise and Andrew are warm, friendly and happy to help with anything you might need.

The food was absolutely delicious!

Loved itI

I liked everything.

The fires going in the evenings. The hot water bottles wrapped in the ponchos in the safari vehicles. The hot water bottles in the beds. The game drives. The picnic breakfasts. The sundowners. The animals and scenery we constantly saw.

Kicheche Laikipia review

Excellent food, both in flavour and presentation.

Another excellent guide who was very knowledgeable. Saw black and white rhinos. Shared a bush breakfast with an elephant! Also exciting chase involving wild dog.

Very comfortable tents including home comforts - hot water bottles very welcome. Very cold in morning and after sun down, need lots of layers.

Watched lions mating.

Brill

In my opinion the best camp in the wonderful Kicheche stable, but Laikipia was very, very cold, wet and windy.

Kicheche Laikipia review

This was my third stay at Kicheche Laikipia so needless to say I love it.

Physically it is delightful, with a proper camp feel (and a body of water in front to attract animals) and at the same time beautifully decorated. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming and the small size creates a lovely group atmosphere at shared meals. Often guests are combining Laikipia with other Kicheche camps so there's a lot of cross over talk which gives a feeling of being part of the Kicheche 'family'. The food is great - in variety and taste.

There is a wide variety of animals, though some effort was needed to find the cats - but we did have the unusual spectacle of a cheetah tucked away in the bush eating its kill. There is a den near the camp which allows extensive viewing of the interaction of hyenas and their pups (on a previous occasion it was occupied by a pack of wild dogs with pups which we spent hours watching).

It's a great place for rhino lovers - we had six sightings on one day. As with all Kicheche camps the guiding is superb - finding the animals, positioning the vehicle to best see and photograph them, and staying out all morning with a picnic breakfast so you spend almost all of your day actually on safari. The extra thoughtfulness towards guests' experience showed in them making two hour long journeys to take myself and another guest separately to the airport when we were on different flights so neither of us had to wait there for two hours.

Kicheche Laikipia review

The team went way beyond our expectations on accommodating the dietary requirements and the food was absolutely delicious for all of us.

Everybody was welcoming and friendly and seemed to be genuinely passionate about making our stay as good as it could be. The little extras are often what makes the difference and Kicheche seems to have thought of them all.

The conservancy itself was beautiful and Simon was always able to find us something to marvel at or a perfect quiet spot to eat and drink the latest goodies from the kitchen.

We would all go back in a heartbeat!
