This camp is of a superb standard. Nicely positioned with the tents not on top of each other. Eating a relaxing lunch with zebras munching on the grass next to you is just great. Lots of wildlife dotted around and passing through the camp which always makes for amusing moments. The food was excellent. The staff were all keen to... More

When we walked into the camp past the resident zebras and looked out over the Acacia Valley I fell in love. This is what I hope heaven looks like. Of course we had the superb standard of service, accommodation, food and wine we had come to expect from Kicheche. Sammi was a delight, as were the rest of the camp... More

This was my second visit to Kicheche Mara but this time with a group. The level of service, standard of food and cleanliness was equally as good as last year. The tent we stayed in was excellent. The beds were extremely comfortable and the hot water bottle was a very nice touch. Coming back from the long dusty drives the... More

Having read all the reviews beforehand I had thought nowhere could be that good, could it? Well the answer is a resounding YES! Kicheche Mara Camp fulfilled all my expectations and more - the location is beautiful, the tents are extremely comfortable with every thing you could ever want (loved the bucket shower which was always hot and very welcome...

Kicheche Mara camp is luxurious accommodation in a fantastic area. The game viewing started at our 'tent', with zebra, hippo, storks, buffalo, mongooses all seen at various times, from our front door. Food was delicious. Service was excellent, from all staff at al times. The game viewing was exceptional, and our driver Benjamin very knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you to... More

This was the second time I have stayed at a Kicheche Camp and the standard was as excellent as ever-perhaps even better my last visit .My tent was extremely comfortable and nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful staff.The meals were delicious and the variety was incredible bearing in mind where we actually were. It would have been a... More

Our 3 nights here were an experience we will never forget. Loved the fact that the tents are dotted here and there rather than all staggered side by side. Very private and secluded. From our verandah it was wonderful gazing at the incredible landscape where wildebeest and zebra grazed contentedly. We loved having a reasonable walk to and from our... More

We stayed at the camp for 11 nights. Throughout the stay, we were looked after impeccably. The whole experience was quite exceptional and all the staff could not have been more efficient and helpful. The service was as good as it is possible to be, as was the food, and the guides were ideal; in short it was a wonderful... More

This was our second trip to Kicheche Mara and it surpassed the first by a long way. The new location is stunning and so peaceful, the food is amazing and the wildlife unbelievably varied. Long days in the vehicles were balanced by shorter days and leisurely lunches in camp. All camp staff were friendly and helpful - nothing was too... More

We're leaving this rather belatedly (sorry Sammy and Colin!) but we could not have wished for a better introduction to the Mara on our first ever visit. Quite apart from the fantastic safari experience this is a wonderful place to stay. Sammy and Colin and all their staff have created a real home from home camp with a warm and... More
