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.

We returned to Kicheche Mara Camp for a second visit and found it as good as the first. Because of its location in a conservancy outside the National Park there are far fewer vehicles (cars from the National Park are not allowed in), however the concentration of game is as high if not higher than in the Park. So it... More

Beautiful setting, wildlife to view from your tent, excellent food, wonderful, large, immaculate tents, attention to detail, friendly and efficient staff. Mara Camp is well situated for game viewing. Our driver guide was knowledgable and interesting and very patient when waiting for the baby cheetahs to come closer. Don't miss out on the bush breakfast. It is a not to... More

Having been to Kicheche Lakipia for two nights, we headed into Mara North for three nights straight after. Flying into the Mara was amazing seeing the hippos in the river, and we had a great drive to the camp. This spreads out over a kilometre along a ridge, with the dining area and lounge etc in the centre. Our tent... More

THE ABRIDGED VERSION: Superb camp, food, accommodation, wildlife and experience. Our second stay here, and there will be a 3rd. Nothing more to say, just go. WARTS 'N' ALL: This camp is one of 4 Kicheche Camps. The second time we have stayed here. It is subtly different from Kicheche Bush camp in location, design, occupancy and experience. The tents...
