Known as Kenya’s best loved safari camp, Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp offers a quintessential game viewing experience, with sweeping vistas of the magnificent vistas of the Masai Mara or the Sabaringo River.
Located where the riverine forest meets the sweeping plains in the path of the awe-inspiring Great Migration, the camp provides an authentic dose of African wilderness, delivered with legendary Kenyan hospitality.
Kichwa Tembo is renowned for its gracious teams of Kenyan staff whose warm welcome, charming service and effortless energy delight guests from all over the world.
40 “Hemingway-style” safari tents with private shower, toilet and private terrace overlooking the savannah. All safari tents overlook park. The tents are tastefully furnished with African furniture and art objects.
Pan-African cuisine is served with flair. After dinner, enjoy a glass of port in front of the fire.
Laid out along the banks of the Sabaringo River on the edge of the Oloololo escarpment, Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp looks out onto the seemingly endless plains of the Masai Mara. Set on a private concession leased from Masai landlords in the less populated northern part of the Mara, the camp offers total seclusion coupled with abundant wildlife. Forty spacious tents, twelve of them luxury suites, are laid out in immaculate grounds, with leisurely groups of warthog feeding right outside the tent doors.
Classic safari interiors illuminated by soft lantern light open up onto majestic African landscapes. Each suite offers an en suite bathroom with stone shower, flagstone floors, soft lighting and separate w.c. in the luxury tents. Spacious private verandas provide a shady viewpoint onto the magnificent grasslands or the wooded banks of the Sabaringo River and the passing wildlife (luxury tents only). Hammocks strung in the grounds or around the gracious swimming pool invite you for an afternoon nap.
