When we arrived at the airstrip we were taken straight off on a bush drive by James and Mark and within minutes had spotted a lioness stalking an impala! She didn't get it but it started our trip to Kicheche on such a high note and it got better and better from there. Emma and Darren were there to greet... More

Arriving at the OLK Airstrip we were met by our wonderful guide Nelson and his trainee assistant Mark. The drive to the camp in a well-fitted FWD vehicle took over an hour as we drove the long way to get a sense of the area. At the camp there was a very warm welcome from Darren and Emma who successfully... More

I went to Kicheche in February 2011 as a long weekend at the end of a business trip. I was collected from the Mara airstrip by Patrick (amazing guide!) and saw more wildlife in my 40 minute journey to camp than I had seen in 5 days in South Africa. The camp itself is beautiful and peaceful (except for the... More

Simply amazing ! Fantastic game drives, superb hosts & the most incredible experience. Accommodation is in tents - but this is nothing like the "camping" I know. Spacious tents, proper beds, terrace leading out onto the savannah, and bucket showers in case you forget for a moment that you are out in the wilds ... And smiling, attentive staff. For... More

I stayed at Bush Camp for the fourth time in November of this year. It was fantastic, as ever. Brilliant guides and a wonderful, small camp. The managers and staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful: the food is just great. If you are serious about viewing the incredible wildlife in the Mara, then this is just about the best...

This was my first time on safari and it totally surpassed all my expectations. You could not ask to be in a better location, being outside the main reserve meant that there was often no one else around which was amazing especially when you are watching week old lion cubs! James, Patrick and Charles are incredable guides, you could not... More

This was my first visit to Africa and given what I experienced it certainly will not be my last. Emma and Darren provided my group with the warmest of welcomes. They showed a great interest in our activities and were present to see our departure and arrival from safari on each day. The accommodation was very comfortable and the staff... More

We chose Kicheche Bush camp for a four day stay in early October for our honeymoon. We booked directly with the camp and were picked up from the local airstrip by one of the guides. The trip back to the camp was a game drive in its self. The tents are immaculate inside and allow fantastic views of the conservancy... More

Our magical experience at Kicheche Bush Camp started when we were collected from the air strip by the lovely Sammy and driven back to camp via lions, cheetahs, birds of prey and antelope of all shapes and sizes. A storm was rolling in which produced the most amazing backdrop for all our photos and quite possibly the best sunset we've... More

There are many previous reviews that state what an amazing place this is and reading them having been there, you realise that they all describe exactly how it was for us. The magic begins with the welcome you receive as you get off the flight and then there is your first game drive to the Camp from the airport to... More
