A great family adventure much helped by the excellent guide Jimmy, who ensured we got to see all that the Masai Mara had to offer. Camp quality was very good, staff could not do enough and nothing was too much trouble.

Simply had the best time here. Sam and Colin, the managers, made me feel like family. The amount of wildlife I saw was incredible. All the guides knew their stuff. I also liked taking the walking tour, so do that if you get a chance. The food was phenomenal and the tents were awesome. It was great to see that... More

The camp fits the environment, quiet,elegant;luxury without the flash.You are treated royally from your morning tea served to your tent to the flashlight escort back after dinner.

What a truly magical place. The camp runs like a well oiled clock, attentoin to detail is second to none. The staff charming, food delicious game abundant - we saw the leopard with her two littel cubs - what a bonus! In spite of a freak storm hitting the camp the day we arrived, this took nothing away from the... 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

We spent 5 nights here in early March 14 with Colin and Sammy and enjoyed every minute of it. The atmosphere was always very friendly, the food excellent, and the location superb especially as there was a leopard with 2 young cubs within 400m of the camp! The laundry service was excellent, enabling us to travel as light as possible,... More

Oh how I miss my sundowner, sitting on my tent porch and watching the wildlife walk by. I have spent a lot of time in Africa and done many game drives but I have never been so relaxed and excited at the same time as I was in Kicheche Mara Camp. It's exciting to be so close to nature (there... More

I have just returned from a photographic safari where we stayed at the Kicheche Mara Camp. The camp was in the bush where animals could easily pass through, and of course they did! We had elephants, bush babies, monkeys in the camp and within a whisker I could hear lions and hyenas! But do not be afraid, safety is paramount... More

We have recently returned from the Mara camp and am already wishing we were back! This is a great camp set out over quite a large area. There are 8 tents all located quite far apart looking over the valley. The tents were large and well furnished, we enjoyed tea being delivered each morning at 6am! The staff were brilliant,... More

Good: Gives back to the community Great location with no fences. Tents far apart and so private. Traditional bucket showers and touches like hot water bottles and rubber boots Less good: Sun-downer is poor compared to others - choose 1 drink in advance and only a nut as food Picnic breakfast also poor compared to others I have had Don't...
