DAY-TO-DAY ITINERARY

DAY 1

Kicheche Laikipia

Following a good night's rest having completed the For Rangers Ultra-Marathon, you will depart Sweetwaters Camp and transfer by private vehicle on a game drive through the Ol Pejeta Conservancy to Kicheche Laikipia Camp. On arrival, you will check into camp and the afternoon is yours to spend at leisure. You may wish to take the opportunity to relax in the tranquility of the camp's location or veture out on a game drive in search of the conservancy's incredible wildlife. There is a selection of activities for you to enjoy included in your stay (see below).

 

DAY 2

Kicheche Laikipia

A full day at leisure for you to enjoy as you please with a list of activities included in your stay.

Our suggestion: Enjoy the low vehicle density of Ol Pejeta while exploring the conservancy during daily game drives. Ol Pejeta is East Africa's largest black rhino sanctuary and there are elephant, lion, cheetah, wild dog and abundant plains game to be found here too. A real highlight for many guests is a visit to the Morani Center to see the last two Northern White Rhino on earth - a poignant memory and humbling insight into rhino conservation. 

DAY 3

Kicheche Mara

There will be time this morning for breakfast before taking a game drive en route to the nearby Nanyuki airport where you will meet your flight to the famous Masai Mara (journey time approx. 1hr 45mins). Upon arrival, you will be met by your guide and proceed on a game drive back to camp through the Mara North Conservancy. The afternoon is yours to spend at leisure with a list of activities available from the lodge to enjoy.

DAY 4 & 5

Kicheche Mara

The Masai Mara is famous for big cats and offers some of the best game viewing action in East Africa. The Mara North Conservancy in which Kicheche Mara is located is a verdant and  beautiful with dense wildlife populations. Unlike the neighboring reserve, vehicle numbers at sightings on the conservancy are limited and the intimacy of wildlife encounters is far greater as a result. During September, the neighboring reserve plays host to the vast herds of the annual wildebeest migration. Labeled 'the greatest show on earth' the migration is a spectacle that shouldn't be missed by anyone visiting the Masai Mara. (Entrance to the reserve paid locally).

Our suggestion: Spend your time in the Mara enjoying the exclusivity of the Mara North Conservancy with Kicheche's expert guides. If witnessing the grazing herds of the migration is of interest, spend a day adventuring in the reserve before stopping at a scenic spot for a sundowner on your way back to camp. 

DAY 6

Depart

After breakfast, a morning game drive as you transfer to the Mara North airstrip for your flight to Nairobi Wilson airport (Approx. journey time 1hr - direct). In Nairobi, you will be met by a driver and transferred to the international airport. For later international flights a day-room at a hotel or afternoon visit to a restaurant can be arranged (not included).
