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!! (some might call it bloody cold but after a hot safari it's lovely!!). It's only 5 mins from the Mara and the 5.30 start is made very bareable by the early morning wake up call with fresh coffee served in your tent. Food is superb and you even got at hot water bottle at night!! We had a lovely surprise on the last night and had our meal served outside our lodge - candles, lanterns, the lot!! Had breakfast out on the Mara every day and saw just about everything - Elephants and lions galore, a baby Zebra being born, Wildebeest getting shredded by Crocs on the big migration (Wildebeest as far as the eye could see) and two Lions bonking were just three of the many highlights!!! Cant recommend this lodge or JT Safaris highly enough!!
