Probably the best photographic experience of my life. We were made extremely welcome from the word go. All of the staff were very friendly. I picked up a bad cold and cough on the flight and Peter, who was managing the camp, took the trouble to have a natural Kenyan 'potion' made up to alleviate my symptoms. I had a... More

I am a frequent visitor to the Kicheche camps, the staff at the camp are super helpful. nothing is too much trouble! The guides are all silver qualified, very knowledgeable re: flora and fauna and completely at ease whether you are new to the Mara, a family or a passionate wildlife photographer. The camps are well appointed, comfortable and beautifully... More

Located in a picturesque acacia valley in Mara North Conservancy, the view from the tent is stunning. The accommodation is superb, comfortable bed, washing basin, flushing toilet and the hot shower after a long day is a godsend. The whole staff is outstanding and very friendly, from the askaris to the tent assistants, and the waiters to the chefs... The... More

If your idea of the ideal safari involves a fence around a resort, themed hotel rooms and a pool to relax in then Kicheche is not for you (but equally don't bother with a safari at all frankly, just go to a safari park). The Masai Mara is the most beautiful place on earth and Kicheche is an extension of... More

I have just returned from the same trip as the previous reviewer, Dan H, and I can endorse 100% everything he's written. When you consider the remoteness of the location and the poor quality of roads back to civilisation, which both have a big impact on the supply chain, what Kicheche Mara Camp achieves is nothing short of a miracle....

Recently had 7 nights at Kicheche Mara Camp. During my trip there I was looked after fantastically. From Freds eagerness to get drinks after a game drive, to Michaels announcement of the meals and serving, to the chefs who cooked up fantastic meals every morning, noon and night, whether to be eaten in the camp, or more commonly for breakfast...

After ten years of thinking about it, I finally made it to Kenya for three weeks accompanied by my college-aged daughter. Personal friends in Kenya suggested the Kicheche camp group, and we were lucky enough to select this camp which is in the conservancy adjacent to the Masai Mara National Reserve. As others have mentioned, the conservancy has tighter controls... More

It was so exciting to be back at Kicheche Mara Camp for my second visit - this time with my son and daughter-in-law. Once again it was the highlight of my safari holiday - and even better than last time. This time we saw LOTS of lion cubs! And a leopard. And everything else you can think of on the... More

Kicheche Mara Camp is a super tented camp in a lovely area with zebra, buffalo, giraffes roaming around close by. The tents are superb, the food excellent and the staff welcoming. Our drivers David, Francis and Benji are first class. Would not hesitate to visit any of the Kicheche Camps in the Mara.
