Kichwa Tembo

andBeyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp is situated on a private concession on the western border of the Masai Mara close to where Out of Africa's famous final scene was filmed. Comprised of spacious Hemingway-style safari tents, the camp offers fantastic views out across the wild Masai Plains, with the Oloololo Escarpment in the background. Not only does Kichwa Tembo enjoy some of the best views in the Mara, but due to its location, you will also be privy to a more hidden side of the Mara by being able to take part in activities such as bushwalks and night drives which are not permitted in the national reserve.

AMAZING! The people were fantastic, really above &beyond;. The safari itself was unbelievable. Portus was a phenomenal guide, we could tell he had a lot of experience, and made our time there unforgettable.
