Climate

The long rains are from early April through to May, and the short rains in November. The coolest time of year
in Laikipia is December and January when temperatures are as low as 5 deg C in the morning hours.
Our altitude makes for cold mornings and warm afternoons with temperature fluctuations of up to 25 deg C.
Dry seasons offer more reliable road conditions although a network of all-weather roads guarantee game
viewing is excellent year round. Please bear in mind over the past few years the weather patterns in Kenya in
general, have changed and are somewhat unpredictable.
Kicheche Laikipia Camp is closed in April & May.

Clothing

Generally speaking the Laikipia Plateau is much cooler than most people expect for a region on the equator,
this is due to the altitude (1700-2000metres) over much of the area. Therefore it is advisable to bring a warm
jacket or jumper, trousers and socks for cold mornings and chilly evenings. During the day however it can get
quite warm. Natural safari colours are recommended especially if you are game walking, they are also ideal
to conceal the African dust! Good walking shoes/ boots will be useful if you intend to walk. A sun hat,
sunglasses, lotion, lip balm and skin moisturiser are important to counteract the sun, wind and dry conditions.
Health Kenya is a malaria zone therefore guests should consult their doctor about prophylactic measures before
travelling. Guests should also be covered by comprehensive travel insurance.

Photography

It is highly recommended to bring a camera with a zoom lens of at least 200mm for wildlife shots. A bean
bag or jumper is useful to rest your camera on for shooting in low light (tripods are too cumbersome for use
in a vehicle). We have several locally made bean bags at the camp however, if you wish to come bring your
own it can be filled at camp. Although there is a small supply of film available at camp it is recommended to
bring your own. Don’t forget to bring a spare camera battery. Recharging facilities are available for digital
cameras and videos (230V 5oHz). Another important item to bring is a pair of binoculars. It is worth buying
a pair if you unable to borrow. Small compact binoculars are fine and handy to carry around however a
larger (e.g. 7×50) pair will be superior in the low light conditions in the morning and evening when most game
drives take place. Always ask permission before taking photographs of people.
