Lovely views across the Mara plains means you feel in the midst of all the action. Access to the Reserve is easy and the staff genuinely friendly and helpful - loved the 'Tusker bar". Our front front room had a wonderfully comfortable outdoor seating area and an innovative in door/out door shower arrangement.

Sorry but i must be honest! we went for our anniversary not too long ago in Feb actually. We decided to go for the weekend. It was a package deal. When we arrived we had a warm welcoming however basic introduction. We noticed other guests were having different introductions (the foreigners). A more detailed introduction. Was it because we are... More

We visited here in December 2014. Met our son and his family in Nairobi and then flew to Kichwa Tembo. The facilities here are better than you can even imagine. For the first few days we were the only ones here so we were treated like royalty, but it certainly did not change when more guests arrive. The staff goes... More

Everything about staying here was an experience. You stay in a luxury tent. Think hotel room with tent walls and roof. The service was amazing, all the way down to morning wake ups with hot chocolate delivered to your room. The hotel grounds are full of warthogs and monkeys. The view is spectacular and the food is amazing. I highly... More

The service and the quality of the tents is very good. Food is also great although you should know there are not many things to choose from, so if you don't like a specific kind of food make sure you let them know.

First of, the food here is divine! Chef George makes real magic in the kitchen. They have their own garden where they grow their own vegetables. And you can taste the difference. The serving staff are so kind and helpful. Our last night of the stay, they celebrated our honeymoon by setting a special table for us seperated from the... More

The camp has been completely redone in 2014. The new suites were very nice - the view from the superior view tents are terrific and the new restaurant and bar areas are pretty snazzy. The motif has certainly evolved from a rustic East Africa safari camp feel to more of an upscale tented lodge. The camp combines modern design elements... More

What an incredible experience! To anyone reading this, you must go to the Maasai Mara and you MUST stay at Kichwa Tembo! ARRIVAL: We landed at the Kichwa Tembo air strip and were met by our safari guide James with a table laid out with drinks and nibbles upon arrival. Then we jumped in the 4x4 and were driven the...

Our family of four recently stayed at Kichwa Tembo in Masai Mara and we really enjoyed the experience. We had the privilege of having the Mara’s first woman safari guide as our guide, Charity. Now a seasoned veteran, she is a skilled game tracker/ guide, who is very personable and knowledgeable and respectful of the animals and environment. Although we... More
