Kichwa Tembo

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.

Exquisite luxury and service. They make a fairly large camp feel very intimate and personal. The grounds are gorgeous, our guide Christopher was fantastic, and the location near the Mara national reserve was perfect for viewing the great migration.

We loved, loved, loved this place. We were especially thrilled with our guide Dennis. Getting to know him is something we'll never forget. All the staff are wonderful, the setting is sublime, and of course we saw every animal imaginable. Light aircraft to and from the camp was also a great experience.
