Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya
Kicheche Laikipia Camp lies within the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, a 90,000-acre wilderness preserve that offers a remarkably uncrowded environment in which to enjoy quality wildlife viewing. The conservancy lies on the equator 30 minutes' drive from Nanyuki airstrip and affords wonderful views of Mount Kenya. Kicheche Laikipia is a small, luxurious tented camp at the foot of an indigenous forest overlooking a waterhole that attracts myriad wildlife. Six sumptuous tented suites provide the ultimate bush experience for a maximum of 12 guests. These large tents are custom-designed and are fully insect-proof with en suite bathrooms equipped with a flushing toilet, shower, and hot and cold running water. Wildlife viewing is possible from the comfort of your own private veranda, overlooking the waterhole, with animal activity throughout the day. The camp also features a large, well-furnished lounge and dining tent with two fireplaces for cooler evenings. Breakfast and lunch are often taken al fresco if weather permits.
