Responsible travel: The four Kicheche camps minimise their impact on the environment by such means as removing all non-biodegradable waste to Nairobi, using recycled charcoal dust pellets for water heating, and using solar power for all lighting and refrigeration. In addition they minimize wastage from plastic drinking bottles each room has a dispenser filled with mineral water.
The camps fund the Kicheche Community Trust which helps projects in and around the conservancy communities where they operate. Their mission is to encourage the preservation of the environment whilst improving the welfare of the community through improved health and education facilities. They strive to empower the community through revenue earning projects too. The Trust builds on four corner posts of Community Welfare: Education, Health and Family Care, Community Empowerment and Environmental Conservation.

They also support the Koiyaki Guiding School which trains local Masai to become guides. The Kicheche Community Project has fast become a reliable source of funding for projects in and around the Aitong area, such as the Olkimitare Nursery School, Aitong Academy Primary School, and the CMF Aitong Health Clinic.
