My first visit to this camp and conservancy! It certainly lives up to th Kicheche name - Val and Brendan were fabulous hosts and Guide Mika was amazing - I still don't know how he spotted one particular leopard (Orsirata). His knowledge of the lions was first rate and we managed to see lions from all the resident prides. Had... More

We visited Kicheche Valley camp as part of a photography tour with an external guide. This camp is for serious safari buffs - all the people we met at the camp had been on safaris before or had visited other camps (some had visited various Kicheche camps multiple times). We saw all the Big 5 over the seven day stay... More

It was part of a broader 10-day trip which included stays at other camps in the Mara North Conservancy and Mara Main reserve. My experience at Kicheche Valley Camp was simply fantastic. The managers Val and her Husband simply did an exceptional job of... More

We recently had the great fortune to stay at Kicheche Valley Camp. The whole experience was awesome. It was our first safari and Francis our guide was very knowledgable about everything you could possibly want to know. He answered all of our queries and questions without exception. He knew exactly where to drive us for the best viewing and wildlife... More

We really enjoyed our 4 days at Valley camp which followed on from a week at Kicheche Bush Camp. We originally booked Valley as a time of rest and recuperation after a hectic week on a photographic safari at Bush. However we had no rest as we were fired up to see even more. Francis was a superb guide who... More

We spent 4 nights at Valley Camp after a week at Bush Camp. Valley has a beautiful setting looking out and down across the Naboisho Conservancy. See giraffes, wildebeest and warthogs from the verandah of your tent. Even better hear the leopard calling...Our tent was spacious and luxurious, the mess area delightful and the food and service excellent. Thanks to... More

My husband and I visited Kicheche Valley Camp for our honeymoon and had a fantastic 4 night stay. There are so many amazing elements about this camp, but above all the hospitality and quality of service is unsurpassed. We have travelled quite a lot and stayed at many wonderful places around the world, but the mix of warm hospitality, generosity,... More

We Just left Kicheche Valley camp and are now in Nairobi waiting for our flight back to the United States. Instead of listening to the roar of the lion in camp and the call of the leopard we are listening to construction. Back to reality. Valley camp is outstanding. The managers of the camp, Val and Brendan couldn't have been... More
