Overall Impressions

We thought the whole fire incident and subsequent closure of JKIA with us being left in limbo would be the much talked about highlight of our trip. Thank you Claire for putting up with stress and being on top of it through out!!!! We were so wrong - every moment in Kichwa Tembo was pure delight. From the first "Jambo" to our final (emotional) goodbyes - we were cared, pampered, educated about the Mara and shown around a land we now call "a piece of Heaven". When I Googled "Kenya safari for kids" and found Mahlatini, that was the first step to a brilliant holiday. Sitting in Dubai and having Claire in Ireland creating an itinerary and answering all my crazy queries and trouble- shooting when there was a last minute panic, our medical and religious dietary requirements catered to, just ensure that next time we head to Africa we will be contacting Mahlatini. Watch out Claire - you made this week for us so amazing that we shall be going back.

Countries Visited

Kenya 5

Hospitality, their efforts towards conservation and protection of their lands and wildlife, the food, the weather......

Accommodation Visited

House of Waine 5

Just the place to go when you need to get away from the rat race.

Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp 5

Traveling with 2 boys I was worried how much they would enjoy. Now I am worried if any other holiday destination will meet the standards set by &Beyond - Kichwa Tembo. Sigei our ranger, Esther, Yailel and Excecutive Chef George - we can't thank you enough. The tents were lovely, the ambience of the whole camp, the beautiful land, the animals, the Masai tribes and all this topped with Kenyan hospitality, has us already planning another trip. And if the vote of our boys is the decisive one - then the only place to go will be Kichwa Tembo.
