This was a refreshing change from being in the national park of the Masai Mara. Whilst being adjacent, it is a privately owned Conservancy. This means that the number of camps and vehicles can be restricted and it was so nice to move around at a slower pace than the Mara, withput the same necessity of rushing hither and thither in order to get a good spot amongst 20+ vehicles at a sighting.

Kicheche Valley camp is beautifully appointed, spacious, and in many respects could be described more as a 'safari resort' than a 'camp'. Tents are modern and roomy, the central camp area thoughtfully appointed and aesthetically pleasing, but the stand out feature of the camp is the view over the valley from the elevated location of the camp high on the hillside. The camp is secluded and small (as are all the Kicheche camps), but the location is what really makes guests feel as if they are alone in this one small part of Africa. Perhaps the most unique feature of this camp is the acoustics of the valley - the roar of lions and the cackling of hyena are amplified by the topography and can make for something of an 'exciting' night. During our stay, a wildebeest was taken down by a clan of hyena shortly before dawn, perhaps 200m from our tent down in the valley, but in the quiet of the night, with cries echoing off the hillsides, it sounded as if the kill took place literally right beyond the netting outside our tent. Whilst food, service and accommodation were all of a high standard, it was the first class guiding that made our stay here so memorable. We witnessed some of our most unique wildlife experiences ever here in Naboisho conservancy, all thanks to the knowledge and passion of our guide, Mika Kaleku. Mika not only possesses the exhaustive knowledge of the local flora and fauna that is the hallmark of Kenya's top guides, but he is also a well-educated naturalist and conservationist with a fascinating depth of perspective and understanding of the issues affecting the Mara ecosystem today - something he enthusiastically shared with us during our two days with him. As someone who asks a lot of detailed questions, I found his obvious intelligence and the structured nature of his thought and communication to be particularly engaging - something helped by his high level of English fluency and unusually comprehensive formal education, as well as years of practical experience. With Mika, observing the social interactions within a herd of impala one afternoon was every bit as fascinating as watching a cheetah stalk her prey the next morning. Whilst the predator density in Naboisho doesn't appear to be as high as in neighouring Olare Motorogi, I would say that it was here with Mika that we found the most authentic natural experiences of our whole stay across three camps in the Mara region - and for the most part, we had them completely to ourselves.

A lovely small camp in the Mara Noboisho Conservency. The Conservency offers options like walking safaris and night drives not allowed in the national parks. Food was outstanding, the guides were knowlegeable and experienced, tents were large and well appointed. A great safari expereince.

A superb experience and adventure at Kicheche Valley Camp. A special thank you goes to Micha, he is an exceptional guide and I’ve really enjoying learning about the valley’s ecology and its ecosystem. Game viewing is great, they offer a night drive as well (would recommend this to others) and the lovely view of the valley during sunrise and sunset just sets a paradise scene to your adventure. Everyone is here are friendly and most welcoming, the night guards does a fantastic job to ensure the safety of the camp - thank you Nickson for a great chat. There are activities such as hot air ballooning, Masai Community visit etc; on a personal note - I would highly recommend the massage after a game drive, it’s very affordable and leaves you feeling relaxed. Asante sana to all the fabulous staff at Kicheche Valley Camp for their hospitality. Joyce, Javan, Maurice, Andy, the masseuse (sorry I’ve forgotten your name), chefs and guards. Food at Kicheche Valley Camp is delicious, loved the idea with curry night! Compliments to the chefs. I would recommend to others, it’s very well organised and you’re always kept informed every step of the way. Thank you everyone. More information — — — — — Atmosphere: This camp provide relaxing atmosphere. Features: 6 tents in total with en-suites, solar powered (ideal for charging phones and cameras only). There’s hot water, best to take a shower during the afternoon. Complimentary laundry service, drinks (including alcohol and juices) and Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi is in the main reception camp only, however it’s great to have a digi-break once in a while. Food: Picnic breakfast (cooked on your last day), lunch and dinner. There’s plenty of snacks throughout your stay - put on those stretchy trousers! Shop: There’s a shop on site, sells souvenirs - items made by local community, fleeces, caps and more. Travel/Transportation: Kicheche will organise a dedicated driver to take you to and from the airstrip. If you’re heading to the Mara this could be by road instead.

We had a fantastic time on our first safari at Kicheche Valley Camp. We felt incredibly lucky to see so many animals in different situations. Javan, Maurice, Joyce and Andy were great hosts as they were both fun and helpful and nothing was too much to ask. Our guide Bernard was the star of the show, his knowledge of the area and animals really made it seem easy to have a great trip every time. We saw every animal possible several times. The food was absolutely amazing, as were the tents. 5 stars.
