27 years since we were last in Kenya! WOW what a difference. Arrived from Wilson airport to be met on the airstrip by the fabulous Magdelle, (General Manager) and her staff. Hot towels and champers went down well. Shown to our tent!!! Admittedly it had some canvas walls! The view over the Mara Triangle sitting on the flushing loo was... More

What an amazing experience. The staff was top notch and genuinely sought to make every moment special. This without being over the top. True professionals that obviously love what they do and appreciate the clients that allow them to do what they do best. Each day was paced almost perfectly and we were able to experience some awesome wildlife. Our... More

We stayed at Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp for three nights towards the end of our Africa trip. We had two rooms,a superior view tent and a standard original tent. The superior view tent is extraordinary and worth the money if you can afford the upgrade. Very well represented in pictures online. Big view difference between the superior and superior view....

We stayed in a Superior View tent which looked across the endless plains towards the Mara River with a stream running past. Our accommodation was lovely but it is the whole experience that one truly enjoys. Magda, who heads up the Lodge was excellent. Kudos to her for making our stay truly memorable. Good food from the interactive kitchen and... More

Words can't really describe how amazing this trip was ... From the moment you fly in, the service, food, location, tours, sights, facilities... everything was simply magical. The staff were wonderful. I felt safe, pampered and exhilarated throughout my entire trip. I'd go back in a second. Far beyond my wildest expectations.

Recently stayed at the Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp during my visit to the Masai Mara. It was a wonderful stay. The staff were all excellent, the facilities are all excellent, the food was superb and the whole experience was top class. Special mention goes to Mary (Front Dest/ Guest Relations), Lazarus (one of the 'Butlers'), the ladies in the kitchen... More

Kichwa Tembo opened July 2014 after a total refurbishment. One year later is looks wonderful - all of the vegetation has grown in. Tents are large. Family tents are connected by a walkway that can be closed off - perfect when you want the kids under the same roof (remember it's a tent) close but not on top of you!

This site was "beyond" amazing!!!! The design of the tents inside was amazing, with built in lighting into the furniture. The entire camp staff made my daughter and I feel so welcome. We had one server for breakfast, lunch and dinner who made sure we were always comfortable. Our ranger, Dennis, was absolutely amazing and attentive, not to mention, knowledgable!... More
