Had the pleasure of staying at Kichwa Tembo at the start of Feb 2014. It was perfect, from start to end. Firstly, our guide Sammie was fabulous. Very knowledgeable, funny and personable. We were lucky enough to pretty much have him to ourselves the whole time we were there. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he is a... More

My wife and I recently visited the Masi Mara and this was our forst experience in Africa and with tenting. The accommodation was good and the food reasonable. THe location of the lodge within the reserve is excellent and you are up front and personal with all the animals. THe staff were excellent.

I recently stayed for 2 nights with my husband and other friends and family members. I have to say I have mixed feelings about Kichwa Tembo. I was a bit sad to find out the pool was closed for renovation. First the positive things: I loved the tents and overall ambiance of the place. This makes for an authentic experience... More

Kichwa Tembo is a wonderful place with comfortable tents, attentive staff, wonderful meals and a swimming pool which is refreshing after being out on safari. We saw loads of animals (including pygmy rhinos) and the driver |(Luke) was very knowledgable. We met some lovely truck and camp mates, the two laides from Michigan - please get in touch, Pat and...

Kichwa Tembo is a delightful property in the Mara of Kenya. A short flight from Wilson Airport in Nairobi. The tented camp has well appointed "tents" with hardwood floors, hit water, and flush toilets. Comfortable beds. I loved the hot water bottles for warm they tucked into the covers each night. Meals are great. Safari experience is top notch. I... More

This camp was recommended by a family member who had stayed there and we were certainly very happy with it. In fact I was quite shocked to read it's not Trip Advisor's #1 Masai Mara camp and can't see why not. From the moment you are collected at the Kichwa Tembo airstrip, the welcome begins. Freshly plunged coffee and biscuits,... More

Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp was our wedding venue Dec 2012. We had around 45 guests flying in from all over the world and we needed to pick a place that could welcome everyone to Kenya the best way possible.
