andBeyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp is situated on a private concession loaned from Maasai tribesmen, on the western border of the Masai Mara and near the location where Out of Africa's famous final scene was filmed. Composed of spacious classic safari tents, the camp offers fantastic views out across the wild Masai Plains, with the Oloololo Escarpment in the background.
Not only do you get the excitement of sleeping under canvas and going out on game drives to witness the spectacle of the Masai Mara, including the annual wildebeest migration, but you are also privy to another hidden side of the Mara by taking night drives and bush walks.
Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp offers 20 superior tents, 8 superior view tents and 12 classic tents. The accommodation is well spaced out, with each tent featuring en-suite bathrooms and a built-in daybed to watch game casually pass by. The general guest area includes a reception, safari shop, bar/sitting room and an indoor/outdoor dining area. There is also an inviting swimming pool overlooking the endless, game filled plains.
Fly into the Kichwa Tembo airstrip, roughly 1 hour's flight from Nairobi and then transfer 30 minutes, game viewing en route, to reach the camp. To road transfer from Nairobi takes about 6 - 7 hours.
2 game drives per day, night game drives, bush walks, bush banquets, sundowners, hot air ballooning and cultural visits.
Read what our previous clients thought of Kichwa Tembo
My first time on a safari did not disappoint. Glamping at its finest! Leaving the sides of the tent open allowed perfect views of magnificent sunsets and sunrises. Our guide, one of the very few females guides, was outstanding! The food was excellent, and Dennis the waiter who served us for the duration of our stay, surprised me with a birthday cake which was very touching.
