From the moment my wife and I arrived the service was impeccable. We were welcomed with a song, wet towels and juice. The tented accommodations were modern and well appointed. The staff was very friendly and extremely service oriented throughout our stay. They made us feel like we were their special guests. Overall, the food was excellent. In fact, my... More

What a place! Everything is right about this tented camp. Great location, just outside the gate at Mara Triangle ( a couple of minutes). Great staff!! Great tents, beautiful views, great food. I would give more points if I could, 5 is the max but for me you are a ten. Thank you for a wonderfull 4 nights.

We stayed in July 2014 (sorry this is a bit late) in the refurbished "tents" and were really impressed with the facilities - very comfortable with great view out of the shower and loo onto the plains. It was lovely to be woken up with hot coffee and biscuits before our game drives each morning. Our guide Benedict was great... More

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!
