Kicheche Laikipia has six large and well-appointed tents with en-suite bathrooms and generous verandahs providing great views over the waterhole, and a hammock. One of the tents has two bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms and a lounge furnished with a small table enabling private dining on request. There is a dining and lounge tent, although meals are frequently eaten outside.
