This place was like no other. The service was outstanding. The safari was unbelievable. The tents were so cool. I had to keep pinching myself. I felt like I was in a movie. It couldn't have been more perfect. Our family of 5 said it was the best trip ever!

Kichwa Tembo hits all the right notes for anything and everything you could want from a luxury safari. Starting from the flight in to their private airstrip to the incredible personal attention received from each staff member, we were highly impressed. On top of that in April 2012 they were running a promotion for stay 2 nights and get the... More

When we booked at Kichwa Tembo, we were a bit worried about the choice we had made but our stay there exceeded our expectations and we are already looking to book forJuly / August during the migration period. From our butler to the driver, everyone was extremely happy to host us. Pros: 1) Exceptional Service, friendly and very helpful staff.... More

July 2011 I had organized a group trip that could have only taken place with the fabulous help of Emma Harrop from Go2Africa.com. She had recommended and booked my group into the fly-out safari offered through &Beyond at the Kichwa Tembo tented camp. People of my group felt like they were in a movie as the airplane approached the landing... More

This is our 3rd visit in recent years, having also stayed at other camps in Mara. The fact we have returned here and brought family and friends should speak volumes in terms of our thoughts on the camp. The value is great (this year was the first in off peak and the value was even better!). The staff were and... More

I wondered about Kichwa Tembo, as it was the largest of the 5 camps/lodges I was going to be staying at, on this, my first trip to Africa. It was the first and proved to be the best. From the time I arrived through my 4 nights, I was made to feel at home. The tent was the simplest of... More

We spent 2 nights and 3 days at Kichwa Tembo. The employees were all so helpful and ready to share. We were given a tour of their kitchen and gardens (they grow most of their own vegetables, some fruits etc). The food was outstanding and they even made a special dessert at the request of another guest. Our guide Timothy... More

I spent 6 nights there last month, travelling alone, and it was a wonderful experience. I was staying in a deluxe tent which was quite nice, and well decorated, even if a little bit far from the restaurant and reception, compared to the classic tents, but it was actually not a big deal. in my personal opinion, though, the classic...

If you are thinking of planning a safari to Kenya then this is a must. I almost don't want to say too much because I don't want to spoil all the surprises. In fact, I will just say - you have to stay here and say hello to Titus and George for me. All the staff are lovely, genuine, sincere... More

We used Kichwa as a base for a research project through much of 2011, and frequently brought friends and family to stay. This is as much a summary of their experiences as of ours, since it can be easy to lose perspective once you have stayed somewhere for such a long period of time. First, a word on the two... More
