We stayed in kichwa tembo camp for 3 nights during first week of august 2010.though the camp is outside the olooloo gate, it takes only 20 minutes to reach the Mara river.because of this proximity we could see the river crossing of wildebeest and zebras twice and it was a truly memorable one.The staffs are courteous , warm and friendly....

We came to KT on our honeymoon after spending 10 days in the Seychelles and we're already planning our next trip back. We've both travelled extensively and have stayed in some pretty special places along the way, but our stay at KT was something else altogether! The staff are fantastic - so warm and friendly and eager to please, and... More

I cant say enough good things about Kichwa. The tents are great. The position of the camp in the Mara is great (less busy than the other side). The main buildings and pools are lovely and relaxing but best of all is the staff and the African hospitality. It was hands down amazing. We left here and went to Serengetti... More

I've been to 30+ countries (including 8 or 9 in Africa), and Kichwa Tembo is most likely my favorite destination vacation ever. The staff is very welcoming, the "Out of Africa" experience is very nice (top notch but not too stuffy), and the location is tremendous. Being situated immediatley in the famed Mara Triangle region of the Masai Mara National... More

We have just returned from three days at Kichwa Tembo, which we booked through J T Safari's. It was fantastic. From the moment we landed and Jackson our guide had a table laid with drinks and biscuits for us in the middle of the Mara. The camp is in a great location and the staff are really friendly and go...

We originally booked a three day, two night stay at Kichwa Tembo, but ended up extending a day because we were loving it so much--something we have never done before. This was our first safari experience, and there was nothing about it that we didn't love. I don't want to repeat what everyone else has said, but it really was... More

We stayed in Kichwa Tembo for four nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The ambiance of the camp is perfect - you can view vast vistas of Mara as you bite into your lunch and dinners are magical with the entire place lit with lanterns. Most evenings there is either a Masai dance or the Kichwa Tembo choir sings... More

We stayed at Governor's camp 3 years ago and were very impressed but Kichwa Tembo was something else. The tents were massive and beautifully appointed. The food was delicious, the setting was idyllic, the service great...what can I say? Our guide was a beautiful Maasai girl Alice who was absolutely charming, incredibly knowledgable and totally dedicated. We saw loads and... More

My parents have been going year after year so I knew this was going to be something very special. As soon as we arrived I was blown away by the luxurious tents and informal atmosphere. There’s plenty going on here, although after a long drive all we wanted was to do game drives and relax by the pool. The resort... More

Hands down one of the most memorable and wonderful experiences of my life. KT is so special and magical. Upon landing our game drivers were waiting at the private airstrip with coffee, tea, cookies and nuts. We were then wisked away to the camp (a short 15 minute ride), during which we saw giraffes, elephants, zebras, etc. The camp overlooks... More
