What to do at Kicheche Laikipia Camp, Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Laikipia, Kenya Safari

  • Daily Schedules- Rigid daily schedules are not on our agenda, there are no hard and fast rules at Kicheche Laikipia so guests can decide at camp on the range of activities available. Picnic breakfasts, lunches and sundowner drinks are popular options to include on game drives.
  • Game Drives (Day & Night)- Watching wildlife at close range, but without encroaching on their space, is endlessly fascinating and our guides’ instincts and experience will provide superb photo opportunities of wild animals. Our safari customized 4WD vehicles are designed to give everyone a perfect view. Night Game Drives are offered to enable guests the chance to observe lesser seen nocturnal species. Our Vehicles are fitted with a hand held filtered spotlight and resident species include aardvark, genet, bat-eared fox, striped hyena, serval, honey badger, civet and zorilla.
  • Research & Education Centre- Wildlife Educational Centre contains a range of wildlife exhibits and background on the Conservancy and its operations, an interesting stop for children and adults alike.
  • Northern White Rhinos- 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. It’s possible to visit the enclosure during your visit (separate fee payable)
  • Lion Tracking- The Lion Tracking program monitors the Conservancy lions (some have been collared with receivers). As part of the program we can track the lions with a portable satellite dish and remit the data to the study center.
  • Walking- 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…
  • Chimpanzee Visit- The Ol Pejeta Chimpanzee Sanctuary was set up for orphaned chimps rescued from West Africa. The Sanctuary is an excellent venue to observe the two families and learn about the perils facing chimpanzees in the wild.
  • Canoeing- There is a two-person canoe in camp which can be used on the dam in front of camp. This activity, only available for adults, may be restricted at times if the dam level is too low or there are any safety concerns with wildlife.
  • Mountain biking- This is a very different mode of safari on a bicycle, an experience you will remember! Includes a short game drive en-route to the designated riding area and we adapt our ride to your fitness. Allow 3 hours for the excursion.
