Kicheche Laikipia Camp, Laikipia, Northern Kenya
Fly by charter flight from the Masai Mara to the Ol Pejeta air strip, then drive to Kicheche Laikipia Camp, located in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. A former cattle ranch, the Conservancy, which extends to 90,000 acres, now combines cattle-herding with wildlife conservation and offers a blissfully un-crowded environment to enjoy quality game viewing. The Conservancy is home to East Africa’s largest population of black rhino, so the conservancy is largely fenced for their protection. However other animals can come and go. These include elephant, cheetah, lion, leopard, wild dog and plentiful plains game. Ol Pejeta lies on the equator a short drive from Nanyuki airstrip and has wonderful views of Mt Kenya. Night drives are available to search for nocturnal species. For more information about the Ol Pejeta Conservancy go to www.olpejetaconservancy.org.
The camp consists of six luxurious tents nestled among indigenous woodland overlooking a waterhole in the centre of the Conservancy, and is hosted by Andy and Sonja Webb, a very experienced management couple, ensuring you have a wonderful stay. Andy is reckoned to be one of the finest walking guides and birders on the whole continent and Sonja is not only an outstanding cook but also a wonderful host. Mike has known Andy and Sonja for many years.
