We stayed at Kichwa Tembo for two nights / 3 days. We flew into the Masai Mara from Nairobi. As we landed we saw our ranger (Meme) and our jeep waiting for us in isolation plus elephants, zebra etc which was simply breathtaking. A lovely touch was that Meme had set up a table with tea/coffee and some snacks in the middle of the Mara before we drove to the camp which was a short 10 minute drive away.
The Kichwa Tembo camp is very comfortable. We had one of the tents which was very comfortable with an ensuite shower and toilet. Meals were served at a central restaurant and bar area. There is also a nice pool.
Our ranger, Meme was simply great and very professional and experienced. We managed to see the Big4 but the leopard remained elusive....an excuse to go back I guess!
The camp was very comfortable and is going through significant refurbishment and will become even better.
We went to a local Masai village which was OK but a little commercialised in truth.
