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

This was the 3rd and final camp of our safari, and gave us the most varied and easiest game viewing of them all. From the "verandah" of our tent, just relaxing for an hour in the afternoon, we saw 13 species of animal that we could name, plus the lion footprint from the night before no more than 30cm away...

The reviewers below have described Kicheche Mara Camp so well that I won't do that but suffice to say that we agree wholeheartedly with their comments and had a simply wonderful time. Sammy and Sian are lovely (so sorry not to meet Colin properly but hope his back is better now) and the other camp staff are amazing. Francis was... More

We were lucky enough to be recommended to the Kicheche camps by Hazel and Ingram at toEscapeto and this was our first camp on this trip. After an overnight flight from Heathrow, the usual chaos at Jomo Kenyatta International and a good Safarilink flight from Wilson Airport to the Mara we were delighted by the welcome from our guides and...

We have just returned from Kicheche Mara Camp, it was our first ever safari and exceeded all our expectations. No photo or research can do it justice. Tents are well spaced out allowing for privacy and peace and tranquility we have never had the privilege to experience before. The view from our tent was incredible and we sat out in... More
