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

Kicheche camps are nice, but what really got me was all of their guides. I stayed at all four Kicheche camps and every guide was "silver rated" - which is sort of the equivalent to having a masters degree in guiding. Camps are each managed by a couple, which makes for a really great, intimate experience. I only had one... More

This was our 2nd stay at Valley where we spent 6 wonderful days. From the moment you arrive at this intimate camp the hosts Val & Brendan along with the other staff make you feel like long lost relatives. The secluded tents are large and luxurious with a huge bed and hot & cold running water. They also have power... More

My husband and I spent four days at Kicheche. Val and Brendan were great hosts, and we immediately felt welcomed by all. It is small and intimate and you can meet a lot of interesting people from all over the world. Both my husband and I have lived and traveled in Africa, and we both consider this a top notch... More

We have just returned from a 3 week honeymoon in Africa, where our 4night stay in the Kicheche Valley Camp was by far the highlight. From the moment we arrived we knew this place was special, the tents were spacious and overlooked the valley where Zebras, Giraffes and all kinds of Antelope roam freely, we even returned to our tent...

After the drive across the Maasia desert of over grazed land, it was an oasis to hit the Naboisho Conservancy. The difference is startling. Great setting on the valley side with views to the plains to the southwest, big tent with laminate flooring (!) Comfortable and well furnished. There is running H & C water so no need for bucket...
