Glamping at its best; the food was incredible, the service impeccable, and the lullaby of the lions' nocturnal conversations unforgettable. Darren and Emma, our hosts, provided the perfect blend of professionalism and informality. Nothing was too much trouble, including encouraging an unwanted bathroom guest - a skink - to leave!

My sisters and I are Kicheche fans and booked a last minute trip in March this year which coincided with my birthday ( yes the review is overdue). Apart from the delicious food and beverages, beautifully kept tents and superb game drives it is the people of Kicheche Bush Camp who make your experience of the Mara the best it... More

This was such a fabulous place to end our safari!! The glamping tents were incredible - comfortable, secure and beautiful. Our hosts were so nice - Aki and Emma. They joined us for every (EXQUISITE) meal. Our guide was on top of everything - all of the big five, plus the migration, birds, crocodiles and more. Kicheche was suggested by... More

I brought my two daughters on safari for a college graduation present. We booked our safari through Rothschild Safaris out of Denver, Colorado. We had the trip of a lifetime! Our favorite camp of the entire trip was the Kicheche Mara Bush Camp. It was the perfect combination of the wildness of Africa and a little bit of luxury as... More

We had a wonderful time staying at this tented site. The accommodations were excellent and the level of service from the staff was outstanding. The hosts (Darren and Emma, followed by Aki) were friendly and helpful, joining for every meal and providing great stories and conversation. We had a superb guide in Patrick who made sure we saw all of... More

This was my third trip to bush camp and it did not disappoint. Darren and Emma were extremely welcoming and are great hosts. The safari guides are incredible; hats off to Charles, James and Patrick for their amazing spotting skills and endless knowledge. All the camp staff are extremely friendly and work very hard to make sure you have the... More

This was my third visit to kicheche and my friend's 8th visit. I never return anywhere but the exception is bush camp. This is one of my favourite places in the world. The hosts Darren and Emma are so wonderful - funny, kind, knowledgeable - and they create a wonderful atmosphere. The food is fantastic and the wine is good.... More

We recently returned to Kenya for another safari fix but the prerequisite was that Kicheche Bush camp had to be on our itinerary and were we certainly were not disappointed with our stay at KBC. From the moment we were collected at the airstrip we were looked after and welcomed back like long lost friends and began to relax immediately... More

From start to finish, this part of our holiday was perfect. Livingstone met us at the airstrip and gave us our own mini safari on the way to the camp. Darren and Emma (and Bing the dog) gave us a very warm welcome and made sure they knew what we wanted so they could try to meet all our expectations... More

Travelled here for in August for the migration. Was concerned about sleeping arrangements but needn't have been. This was truly an outstanding experience. So much so that when we left for another camp we were very emotional as we felt like we were leaving old friends. A temporary manager (Aki) was in place and she was superb. We had Charkes... More
