Review of Kichwa Tembo

Michelle & Mike

I could spend hours raving about Kichwa Tembo. I have never felt more taken care or a sense of family anywhere that I've traveled. We absolutely loved that our room attendant (Kamai), server (Jepko), and safari guide (Benson) stayed with us through the entire trip. They were all amazing, hospitable people, however I have to give Benson a special shoutout here. He was such a joy to spend 4 days…
