Laikipia Conservancy Areas, Kenya
Intimate and informal, this small tented camp has a delightful location in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Track lions, spot black and white rhinos, and game drive in a lost world that’s packed with wildlife.
Six tented suites have canvas walls and comfy furniture, plus a large bathroom and a very pleasant verandah for languid evenings. The two bedroomed suite is well suited to families, the ensuite bedrooms are separated by a comfortably furnished lounge area and share a larger verandah.
We like how it’s been done in the classic safari style, which helps to maintain the vivid impressions of the wild: the canvas dining area offers a lovely setting to relax after a busy day on safari. The low electric fence keeps buffalos away but most of the other grazers regularly wander straight past the tents. If you don’t move or make noise they sometimes pass just two metres away.
This is the perfect base for seeing lions and rhinos. Ol Pejeta Conservancy is home to the world’s final three northern white rhinos, plus large numbers of breeding black and southern white rhinos. Game drives can track radio-collared lions with researchers, providing an enhanced insight into the famous predators. Bush walks are also a possibility, along with mountain biking in a quieter predator-free area of the conservancy.
Combine iconic safari accommodation with the four-legged giants of Africa and Kicheche Laikipia Camp has a lot going for it. But it really shines through the relaxed, sociable atmosphere, as well as an ambience that evokes authentic Africa.
Visits to the rhino sanctuary must be booked in advance and we can arrange this for you.
