We arrived at Kicheche Valley for 4-days/ 3-nights having spent two amazing days at Laragai House, Borana Lodge just north of Lewa Downs. It was a great contrast to the drier more open area of Borana whilst retaining the exclusivity to enjoy the wildlife. The drive from the airstrip was only 15-mins and the arrival upon landing and then coming... More

I stayed at the Kicheche camp last week upon the recommendation of a travel agent that had visited herself. This was the second Kicheche camp that we had visited on our holiday. It genuinely couldn't have been any better, from the minute we arrived till we left we were treated like royalty. We were picked up by our guide from... More

A big thanks to management and staff at the Kicheche Valley Camp. It was more like a home from home than a resort. The atmosphere was very welcoming and certainly what we needed after a month of travelling. The tents were comfortable and had all the comforts (inside shower) that you need. There was electricity (you will need to bring... More

We agonised for ages and ages over which camps to go to to celebrate my 60th birthday with our little group of nine comprising my wife and I, our four adult children, one son-in-law, one partner and one grand-daughter (aged 15 months). Having been mucked about by one travel agent we turned to toEscapeto for help and selected two of... More

We visited the Kichehe Valley camp for the first part if our honeymoon and could not have picked a better location or nicer hosts. Brendan and Val made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and the rest of the staff were exceptional throughout our stay. The game drives were incredible! Francis was our tour guide and he was... More

Unfenced camps have a charm of their own, (beware of zebras falling over your tent guy ropes) and hearing the leopard calling just outside the tent as we ate dinner on our last night was unforgettable. Beautiful tents with views over the Valley - Tent 1 is further from the main tent but has stunning views. It's a small intimate... More

Knew from the moment we arrived we were in for something special. We have been very fortunate to stay in some great camps in our lives but this beats everything hands down. Brendan & Val are sublime hosts and the level of guiding is truly unbelievable. Great and spacious tents, amazing food and a feeling of being part of the... More

So fun. Loved every minute. Beautiful location and camp, great service, fabulous guides. Love the conservancy philosophy and the Kicheche sense of social responsibility. Chose this one over others because of the small camp, night drives and off road potential. Saw so many animals (which of course is the main thing you are looking for in a safari) including lions,...

I contemplated whether or not we were crazy to bring our 5 kids ages 4-21 out to the middle of Kenya to a camp with no fences, but what an adventure we had! The small camp has well-appointed tents with enough privacy (I was worried my boys would be too noisy for the other guests). Surprisingly comfortable beds, hot water... More

Kicheche camps are the best way to experience Mara - in middle of the conservatory, unfenced and just a few tents make you feel like you are part of the ecosystem. The tents are very comfortable with all luxuries you need, the food is delicious and the hosts are very helpful. Overall, a great place to stay during your trip... More
