Don't be put off by the long rough drive from Nairobi, this place is worth the effort. Our tent was on the periphery of the electric fenced compound, in a patch of beautiful forest, with the Mara plains stretched out in front. The tent was very comfortable ( even provided a hairdryer!) and we watched the warthogs munch on the... More

My husband, our 20 year old son and I spent 3 nights at Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp last week (Aug 18 -21). The trip was organized through & Beyond, a South Africa company that owns the camp. Our total experience was extremely positive and we recommend the Kichwa Tembo camp in particular, and the & Beyond company more... More

Stayed here for our honeymoon and were blown away by everything this place has to offer. The drive from the landing trip to the lodge was a sign of things to come as we saw loads of animals - zebra, giraffe, etc against a beautiful masai mara backdrop. Upon arrival, we were relieved of our bags and given fresh lemonade... More

The tents were lovely-luxurious and perfectly appointed. Loved having early morning coffee and cookies quietly placed inside with a just loud enough "Jambo" to wake us up pre-safari. Our guide was absolutely skilled and experienced-he showed us incredible examples of Masa wildlife, and was super knowledgeable about every plant and animal we passed. The cuisine was fine, not great, but... More

We decided to visit Kichwa Tembo as part of our honeymoon through & Beyond candan not recommend the tour operator ( Jomandie) & KT highly enough. From the moment we stepped off the plane we were overwhelmed by the beauty of the Masai Mara and it's wildlife. Even on our 15 minute journey to the resort our driver showed us... More

Kichwa Tembo was my 1st tented camp & it was fantastic! No single supplement and the classic tent was spacious & clean. Standard tent #5 offered an absolutely stunning view of the Mara. No electrical plugs so no hairdryer but can’t say it really mattered much. Hairdryers were available in the main washroom and the bar had an area where... More
