This was truly top notch from start to finish. The small size (six well-spaced luxury tents) on unfenced property truly lends itself to a unique and intimate experience. Each night we awoke to peek outside our tent and see everything from Zebras to Buffalo grazing. In the morning, we enjoyed coffee with the antelope before our AM game drive. The small size really afforded us personalized service- my husband and I actually had our guide all to ourselves, and he customized the whole experience to be exactly what we wanted each day (full day game drive, half-day game drive, walking safari, Masai village visit, picnic etc.- it was all up to us). I felt a little bad upon noticing that some services crammed 6-10 tourists into one bus, leaving everyone to elbowing each other out of the way for pictures. Our amazing guide managed to show us every animal imaginable- and in most cases, their cubs as well. He even made a point of coming and getting us after hours to help us track down a nearby leopard (he knew how badly we wanted to see one at night). I really can't say enough positive about Kicheche Bush camp...I'd do it all again in a heartbeat. Yes, it may be a bit more expensive than some of the other operations, but this is truly a once in a lifetime experience and well worth the extra cash (you just don't skimp on something like this).
