Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp
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 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.
Please note that the classic tents at Kichwa Tembo will be closed for renovation from 15 October 2013 to 31 March 2014. However, our luxury tents will be ready and waiting to welcome guests with our famous brand of warm African hospitality.
Why Stay at Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp
- Set on a private concession leased from Maasai landlords in the legendary Masai Mara
- In the path of the annual Great Migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra
- A swimming pool with some of the best views in the Mara
- Bush walks along the Mara River or Oloololo Escarpment
Laid out along the Sabaringo River on the edge of the Oloololo escarpment, Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp looks out onto the plains of the Masai Mara. Set on a private concession leased from Masai landlords in the north of the Mara, the camp offers total seclusion and 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 ensuite bathroom with stone shower, flagstone floors, soft lighting and separate w.c. in the luxury tents. Spacious private verandas provide views of the open grasslands or the wooded river banks and the passing wildlife (luxury tents only). Hammocks strung in the grounds or around the gracious swimming pool invite you for an afternoon nap.
Beneath African skies
Browse for souvenirs of your safari in our well-stocked Safari Shop or share your experiences around an evening cocktail in the bar. Meals packed with fresh ingredients and flavoured with aromatic spices are served in the simple but elegant dining room, open to the warm breezes coming off the Mara or beneath a myriad stars looking out onto the African plains.
