We stayed here at the end of October on a 3day - 2 night trip from Mombassa which we booked through Julius JT safaris - who we thoroughly recommend. Kichwa Tembo is suitable for all - great but unobtrusive service - the food was wonderful - the position of the camp with views across the Mara is perfect we could... More

Kitchwa Tembo lodge is superb. The food and service were second to none. We booked throught JT Safaris and thought we were getting Fig Tree Lodge. However, the brilliant Julius (who we booked Tsavo east/West with last year) gave us a wonderful surprise and booked us Kitchwa Tembo. The lodges are wonderful and the pool (fresh water) is VERY refreshing!!... More

We stayed at Kichwa Tembo for 3 days and 2 nights at the end of October 09. We did an air safari from Mombassa arranged with JT safaris( who, by the way, are also brilliant) We were in tents 3&4. The tents are fabulous , and have the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The view from the... More

We stayed here from 7th to 9th of October & had an amazing time! We had booked this from the UK with Doc from Kenyan Adventures & Beyond (please see separate review on him & his company - will not bother using again). Our flight from Mombasa took just over 2 hours & landing on the small dirt strip was... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the first of October. We were booked here by our safari operatoe, Eastern & Southern Safaris, Nairobi. We had two luxury tents and loved it. All service was of the highest order. The hot water bottles in the bed at night were an indulgent touch. Food was very good and the setting for... More

Have stayed at safari camps before but Kichwa Tembo was beyond my wildest dreams. The safari tents were amazing with views directly over the savanah. The best tents to get are 1 - 14 as they all open onto the deck with views from sunrise to sunset. My tent was serviced by Simon and Carol who couldn't do enough to... More

The camp tent & bathroom in our LUXURY tent was quite nice, private, romantic & with an incredible view (noticed the standard tents were very close together & many with no views) when I asked our room steward Joshua for a fan it appeared instantly! Service from Joshua was excellent with many thoughtful touches throughout our 5 day stay. Perhaps... More

Ooh flip! we messed up – and we are devastated! Hello AussieCouple, We are so sorry that we let you down. We usually get great feedback on our food at Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp and have no idea how this happened. We are definitely not cutting back on costs or guest delight because of the downturn – if... More

A young couple, we have stayed 2 nights in Kichwa Tembo in early September 2009. It was a fantastic experience. The setting is amazing (outdoor lunch under the trees facing the plains of Masai Mara and watching the zebras is unforgettable) and this is definitely luxury camping. We are used to 5 star hotels and we found nothing was missing... More

Kichwa Tembo was everything I imagined a safari should be-the green tents, the amazing game drives,.. and more! Their location makes it the prime spot for watching game (esp. in August), 15 minutes from everything: the private airstrip, the national reserve, and the Maasai village. Our drive to the camp took longer than 15 minutes because so many animals were... More
