We were at Kicheche Bush Camp as part of a Photographic Trip with the enigmatic Paul Goldstein. The camp was amazing, with large luxury tents, super food and friendly,entertaining hosts Emma and Darren. At bush camp you feel part of the landscape especially in the evenings and nights when the sound of the wildlife fills the air. A real out... More

What to do on New Year's Eve 2015? Packed pubs, expensive drinks and no taxis? No this year we headed out to my favourite place in the world - Masai Mara. This is my 5th stay at Bush Camp and as usual Darren, Emma and their fantastic team ensured this was a magical holiday. The tent was beautiful and James... More

We had the most fabulous 3 nights at Kicheche with our two kids (9 and 12). The whole trip was amazing; being driven and guided by the wonderful and knowledgeable Jimmy for our time in the Mara and seeing all those animals up close and personal (but without feeling that we were imposing ourselves on them); the beautiful accommodation so...

Dear All at Bush Camp - Happy New Year from the Davies family - we paid a return visit back in September and met by Aki holding the fort brilliantly while Darren and Emma had a well earned break. All was as we remembered wonderful! From the games drives guided by our old friend James - the migration, a new... More

Spent three full days with my family including three girls ages 16, 15 and 12. Darren & Emma, the couple that run the camp, are fantastic. Very engaging, funny, knowledgeable, easy going, customer focused, great with kids, etc. I could go on and on. Nelson was our guide and he did a great job. Very knowledgeable and friendly. It's a...

Yet another fabulous stay at Kicheche Bush Camp. I had visited once before and vowed then that I would come back. I was touched and surprised to be remembered from my previous visit and it is these little things which make Bush Camp so special. Staying there is truly a five star experience. The tents are pure luxury and I... More

We recently stayed at Kicheche bush camp for four days. In the first 24 hours, we had the most incredible safari experience ever: from a leopard with a cub, playing in the open (and only the two of us in a jeep as the audience), a cheetah with two cubs making a kill, to a troop of 13 lions on...

There are no shortage of glowing reviews on here for Kicheche Bush Camp on here, which is why I wanted to stay there in the first place. And Kicheche didn't let me down. This was the last 4 nights of a 2 week safari in Kenya and my first time to Africa. So having other locations and camps to compare... More

We have just spent a week in Kicheche Bush Camp and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wishing to explore the Masai Mara for the first time. I don't know how they manage it but camp hosts Darren and Emma, together with their team, provide a truly relaxed and comfortable retreat in an otherwise remote and testing environment. Anything is... More
