We have recently returned from our third two night stay at Kichwa Tembo, during our package holiday to Mombasa and it continues to be the tops! The tents are roomy and luxurious and we were provided with a hot water bottle as it was much colder than previously. The service was again brilliant . Everyone from our butler to the manager were so friendly and helpful. It was great to be remembered by everyone a "repeaters" and to be " welcomed home". It certainly felt like it was our home from home, all the more so as Alice was our guide for the third time. Alice, a beautiful Maasi girl who is so knowledgable, so witty and has a fantastic personality. We saw all the Big 5 ( you would expect nothing less with Alice). The highlight of our visit was to see a black rhino and her calf at close quarters for over 10 minutes. We have previously seen the back of a rhino disappearing into the bush but this time on our second day eagle eye Alice spotted the rhinos in the distance and within 2 minutes we were just 10 feet away...just Alice, the two rhinos and my wife and I...just FANTASTIC!!!. For our safari company, for the fourth year we chose JT Safaris who once again proved to be excellent value for money as well as offering a really caring and top class service.
