Had the pleasure of staying at Kichwa Tembo at the start of Feb 2014.
It was perfect, from start to end. Firstly, our guide Sammie was fabulous. Very knowledgeable, funny and personable. We were lucky enough to pretty much have him to ourselves the whole time we were there. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he is a wonderful asset to the company. We were very lucky to see so much, it was a real privilege to see the animals in their natural habitat. The tent was great, very comfy bed, and shower and loo facilities. We were placed on the left side of camp, with the small river running behind. It was fabulous to lie in bed at night and listen to the hippos and lions. The small touches, like notes on our bed and the hot water bottles left by Henry, our room butler, were lovely. The food prepared by Chef Jon and Owen, fresh, each day was wonderful and I would highly recommend you indulge. The food was plentiful and we were very well looked after by our waiter, Thorne, the whole time. The camp manager is a lovely lady called Esther. She went out of her way, at all times, to make us feel like we had just returned home and that we were comfortable and spoilt. Overall, a wonderful experience. Asante Sana.
