This was yet another fantastic stay at the Kicheche Mara Camp and thanks to Charles and the camp staff even better than the last trip. The quality of service, the food the luxury tents all combined for a wonderful trip. The guiding, in the wonderful hands of Joseph, gave us lions, in and out of trees, elephants galore and amazing...

This was our first safari experience and we really enjoyed the feel of camping in the wilderness but with luxury facilities. The camp is set in a stunning location by a stream in a lush green valley with lots of trees and rolling hills, and the tents are very well appointed. We had wonderful dinners every night and swapped stories... More

Lovely location beside a river in the North Mara district. The camp is comprised of a secure but unfenced area deep in the heart of Masai Mara with insect proofed tents of the highest standards complete with ensuite facilities and comfortable beds and linen. Twice daily safari drives are included and are conducted by skillful and knowledgeable Masai people whose... More

Another great stay at Mara camp! True the conditions were a bit challenging to say teh least with the weather - lots of rain - but it certainly didn't spoil our stay - if anything it made for great stories! Our guides - Benja, Joseph and Jimmy - were 1st class - what you'd expect from a stay at any... More

I cannot begin to tell you how awesome this camp is, we were picked up by our guide George and we were told we were the only guests in the camp for the next 2 nights, how special. We were greeted by Peter and Toby who were fantastic hosts and kept us mesmerised by their knowledge and experiences in the... More

We stayed at the Mara Camp in July 2015 with our 10 year old. It was an amazing experience and the highlight of the holiday. The camp was bush luxury, beautiful tents in the middle of the African wilderness with nothing separating you from the wildlife. You feel truly immersed. Kicheche was faultless, from the tents to the food to... More

We stayed in the Mara North Conservancy then the Naboisho Conservancy. Both camps were excellent, great camp hosts, camp staff had a real eye for detail and the service was excellent, the tents were so much more superior than I thought they would be. The game drives were just incredible and our guide was fantastic Johnson Kepera! We saw so... More

This was our only stop in Kenya after spending a week in Tanzania. Our guide, George, picked us up at the dirt runway airport and we had a game drive to the camp. The tents are amazing and fun and Charles' staff is most accommodating. Meals are excellent, well prepared and delicious. Yes, the chefs in the bush are much... More

We spent 3 nights on safari as part of our honeymoon. This was definitely the highlight of the trip. The accommodation is excellent and the catering is phenomenal- it is hard to believe that such high quality service and food can be provided in the middle of the Masai mara! Our driver and guide was brilliant- very knowledgeable. It was... More

My husband arranged the trip as a surprise present, and I have to say, everything is such as WOW, especially that everything is arranged by Kicheche (all my husband did was to ask)! I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to go to Massai Mara, but don't know where to start. If you are travelling from the UK, quite... More
