5 Day Kenya Fly-in Safari Kicheche Laikipia & Fly Camping

Our 5-Day Kenya Fly-in Safari to Kicheche Laikipia Camp and Fly Camping tour is a luxury Safari where you begin by flying from Nairobi to Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Laikipia and stay for 2 nights at the luxurious tents in Kicheche Laikipia Camp. The next 2 nights are spent on a fly camping excursion in Lolldaiga Hills Ranch.

This private safari is led by one of Kicheche’s camp professional guides and offers an outstanding opportunity to see Laikipia from all perspectives with extended game drives, night drives and guided bush walks with an armed ranger and guide through Lolldaiga Hills Ranch where your fly camp is based.

This personalized itinerary makes it very flexible in the number of walking hours (sometimes as far as two hours, or as little as thirty minutes).

Ol Pejeta Conservancy
The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is home to Kenya’s largest population of Black Rhino, considerable numbers of elephants, cheetah lions, leopards and plentiful plains fame. There are also a number of rare Northern species like Grevy’s Zebra, Jacksons Hartebeest and Beisa Oryx.

In addition to the incredible game viewing opportunities, the wide range of activities on offer allows visitors a complete wilderness experience. The Conservancy lies on the equator and has Mt Kenya as a stunning backdrop.

Kicheche Laikipia Camp
The camp consists of six luxurious tents nestled at the foot of an indigenous forest overlooking a waterhole in the centre of the Conservancy. The Camp is hosted by Louise Wood and Andrew Obaga.

They will coordinate your activities during your stay. Kicheche is located in the Wilderness zone of the Conservancy and with only one bed per 1,500 acres this offers an incredibly private experience.

Lolldaiga Hills Conservancy
The stunning Lolldaiga Hills, Northwest of Mount Kenya, offer excellent walking terrain.49,000 acres of wilderness from cedar forests to open grasslands and valleys, outstanding views, 104 mammals, and 385 bird species.

The Walk
The walking will not be strenuous and there will be many intervals at various points of interest. The distance covered will be approximately 10km (allow 3-4 hours) on the first day and 13km (allow 4-5 hours) on the second day. As the walk is run on an exclusive basis, we are flexible and can adjust to your requirement.

The Fly Camp
A lightweight fly camp, staffed by a cook and a camp hand, will be set up in advance of arrival. Small dome tents for 2 guests are equipped with camp beds, bedrolls, chairs and a washstand. Separate bathroom facilities are available (long drop toilet and bush shower). A lightweight mess shelter will be used in the event of rain.
