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

From two experienced travellers, we cannot recommend Kitcheche Mara Camp enough. The managers Sammy and Colin run a top quality safari camp with their friendly and helpful staff. We had the best holiday experience ever – it was simply perfect. The quality of staff, service as well as food was better than the 5 star Raffles hotel in the Seychelles.... More

This was my sixth visit to Kicheche Mara camp & another wonderful, memorable safari. Sammy & Colin make you feel so special, helped by wonderful staff- Fred, Nelson, Samson & Michael. They can't do enough for you. And then there is the main event- the wildlife both close to camp & in the conservancy itself. The guides- Joseph, Benja, George... More

Sammy, Colin and the whole staff looked after my family and I when we stayed there for three days. They made a birthday cake for one of the guests and organised a party as well as being brilliant guides to the wildlife.

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

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
