Kichwa Tembo

Explore Kenya

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.

The staff were all very friendly, and went to a lot of trouble to make our stay special. As they knew it was our honeymoon, they arranged romantic meals specially for us, and showed a real pride in their work deservedly. The camp itself is also spectacular. We had a "Superior view tent", which was stunning, and looked out over the savannah. We saw a great deal of wildlife from our tent, both within and without the camp, and the resident warthogs and monkeys were particularly delightful. Food was excellent, and although we were slightly concerned about vegetarian options for my wife our concerns were allayed. There were always delicious vegetarian and meat options, and because it is a buffet style restaurant you can easily pick and choose what you want. The added bonus of a dedicated waiter to make sure that everything was alright with meals, and who learned our preferences and catered for them very early on, was fantastic, Delivery of coffee, tea etc. to the tent first thing before game drives was also a lovely touch. Our room was kept spotless throughout, despite our best efforts, by the lovely and thoughtful butler, who was always careful to ensure he did not disturb or interrupt us while carrying out his work. The guides we had during our stay were fantastic, and both displayed a great knowledge and insight into the wildlife. We went on a walking safari as well as the normal trucks, which was an amazing experience, and also gave us a chance to learn more about the local flora and how the Maasai use indigenous plants for day to day activities, which was fascinating.
