We have just returned from a wonderful trip to Kenya including 4 days in the Masai Mara. There are so many places to stay in the Mara - Kichwa Tembo is definitely worth considering. The newly renovated tents now called superior tents are very comfortable with great beds, sitting areas, showers and twin vanities. Every morning our butler would wake... More

My son and I stayed at Kichwa Tembo at the end of our Africa trip and it was the perfect choice. We were met at the airstrip by friendly staff who greeted us by name and had a beautiful afternoon tea set up for us prior to riding to the camp. The remodeled camp is stunning. Definitely has the feel... More

We flew into the small dirt airstrip and was met by Jackson, our driver/guide with hot drinks, nuts, dried fruit and biscuits. Jackson was a amazing, knowledgeable and funny. On our 20 min trip to our camp we saw 16 different animals and 3 bird species, we thought we could go home now, we've seen it all already, but we... More

Kichwa Tembo was our second stop on our 50th Anniversary trip. OK, we really took it on our 46th Anniversary, but... The trip was arranged by Maureen Stover at Go2Africa, who really did a great job - and at a great price. I investigated about 12 companies doing safaris, and saw others with the same itinerary but double the price.... More

I have never said, "Wow!" as many times as I did at the Kichwa Yembo Tented Camp. From the initial crossing from the small airport to the tented camp on the edge of a lush bushy area, we saw 30+ species of animals and birds with the help of a guide. The excitement never let up from that point on.... More

My wife and I just finished 5 days and 4 nights at the breathtaking Kichwa Tembo resort in the Masai Mara region of Kenya. We were there from July 17-21, 2014. The trip was absolutely out of this world and I would recommend this hotel and destination to anyone looking to do safari in Kenya. Tour operator: We booked our... More

After a scenic flight in eagle territory and a brief stopover at Mara North Airport we arrived at the private Kichwa Tembo Airport. At about a mile from the strip, the brand new camp was remotely visible across the lush plains separating the two. Just during this initial brief encounter we were already able to spot the plentifull wildlife grazing... More

I'm a travel writer who travels a lot. Mostly to amazing places and exceptional properties. Of all the places I've stayed at nothing has come close to andBeyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp. I still think of our lovely room steward Nasiti who woke us for our game drive each morning with a silver pot of tea and biscuits, and placed... More
