This classic ‘Conservancy Safari’ visits two diverse eco-systems in the hands of expert guides and
your home will be two luxurious bush camps. The Conservancy, now 90,000 acres, offers a
blissfully uncrowded environment to enjoy quality game viewing. The Conservancy is home to
Kenya’s largest population of Black Rhino, large numbers of elephant, cheetah, lion, leopard and
plentiful plains game. Ol Pejeta lies on the equator 30 minutes drive from Nanyuki airstrip and has
wonderful views of Mt Kenya. The safari then flies down the Rift Valley and into the Masai Mara to
Kicheche Main Camp. There will be game drives in custom built vehicles and also the exciting
opportunity to do walking safaris. The safari ends with a flight to  Nairobi in the morning.

Day 1  Nairobi - Nanyuki

This morning you will be collected from your Nairobi city centre hotel or Jomo Kenyatta airport and
transfer to Wilson airport fro your schedule flight to Nanyuki.   Flight departs Nairobi at 10h20 and
arrives into Nanyuki at 12h20. Upon arrival you will be transferred to the camp in Ol Pejeta
Conservancy, journey time is approximately one hour. Lunch at camp then relax until afternoon tea
is served. Venture out onto the rolling plains on a game drive to enjoy the wonderful array of game
on offer. Game driving in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a rare pleasure with few vehicles permitted

hot shower before joining other guests for a drink around the campfire or in the cosy lounge tent.
Dine with your hosts either under the stars or in the adjacent dining tent.

Kicheche Laikipia Camp
The camp will consist of six luxurious tents the tents are custom designed and are fully
insect-proof with en-suite bathrooms equipped with a dresser, flushing toilet and hot
showers. There are comfortable chairs on each veranda overlooking the plains. One tent
can be converted into a triple on request. There is a spacious well furnished lounge and
dining tent, although we prefer to eat alfresco if weather permits. We offer a full selection
of game-viewing activities including Day Game Drives, Night Game Drives which focus on
nocturnal species not seen on regular day drives. Interpretative Game Walks are another
activity permitted on the Conservancy. There is also a Lion Tracking program which
monitors the lions of the area (some have been collared with receivers). As part of the
program we are able to track the lions with a portable satellite dish and remit the data to
the study centre. A Horse Riding excursion is currently being set up, more details will be
made available soon. In addition, the Wildlife Educational Centre is interesting for both
children and adults alike, and the Chimpanzee Sanctuary for orphaned chimps is an
excellent venue to observe the two families and learn about the perils facing chimpanzees
in the wild. We offer private visits to the Sanctuary outside the normal visiting hours.

The Ol Pejeta Conservancy
There is a huge amount of game on this 90,000 acre Conservancy including Kenya’s largest
population of black rhino, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lions, cheetah and more. There are few
vehicles on the Conservancy therefore game viewing is a very private and rewarding experience.    
On the Conservancy there is also an opportunity to take Night Game Drives which focus on
species not seen on regular day drives. Interpretative Game Walks are another activity permitted
on the conservancy, these provide ideal opportunities to learn about the building blocks of the eco-
system whilst providing some exercise. There is also a Lion Tracking program which monitors the
lions of the area (some have been collared with receivers) as part of the program we are able to
track the lions with a portable satellite dish and remit the data to the study centre. Other attractions
include the Chimpanzee Sanctuary for orphaned chimps. The Sanctuary is an excellent venue to observe the two families and learn about the perils facing chimpanzees in the wild. We offer private
visits to the Sanctuary outside the normal visiting hours.

Mara Kicheche Camp

Hidden in a grove of wild olive trees and prolific wildlife, Kicheche is a classic bush camp, where
game viewing starts right from the camp itself. The 11 tents are spacious, fully insect-proof and en
suite, with hot water for showers available at any  time. Rigid daily schedules are not part of the
agenda here, so guests decide on the duration and frequency of their activities. Picnic breakfasts,
lunches and sundowners are popular options to include on game drives. Game viewing is
conducted by 4x4 open-topped vehicles and accompanied by an experienced guide. Walking
safaris are also possible and an excellent way to discover the finer points of this unique
environment. These are led by an armed ranger and can also include visits to a nearby Maasai
village. The food is delicious and menus features both African and international dishes. Fresh
produce is flown in regularly and bread and pastries baked daily. In-camp, meals are taken al-
fresco where guests sit at the communal table with their hosts, or are welcomed to dine alone.
