We stayed here for 5 nights at the beginning of February before moving to Kicheche Bush Camp for another 5 nights. This was our 4th visit to a Kicheche camp but the first to the Kicheche Mara Camp in its present location having stayed at the KMC in its original one. Wow, what a stunning place, the tents are well...

This was our seventh visit to Mara Camp and it feels like our second home. Andrea and Manuela are fantastic hosts, they make us feel like one of the Kicheche family. They are so passionate about Africa and wildlife which makes the conversations at mealtimes very interesting for us as we are addicted to going on safari holidays! This was...

The Camp is located in the northern section of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. We knew we were in for something special as our small plane began its decent to the airstrip where one spectator stood out. It was David our assigned guide for our stay who was dressed in the blazing red Maasai Mara garb which was just eye-catching...

A treat in acacia valley where giraffe walk past your tent, and the experienced and friendly staff make your stay fly by. Mara North conservancy is a gorgeous jewel in Kenya where wildlife thrives. The camp is tucked away in a gorgeous valley where wildlife is visible from your verandah. We even managed to see an aardwolf, one of the...

Just returned from a wonderful 8 day stay at the Kicheche Mara Camp. Eight days is quite a long time in one camp (we also stayed at Kicheche Valley Camp) BUT there was never a dull moment and our excellent guide, Benja, ensured that every day was packed full of new sightings and experiences and we visited many different areas...

Our final stop on our Kenyan safari adventure and probably my favourite of the camps. Top quality permanent tents overlooking the grasslands full of wildlife, the local hippo in the river, the water buffalo around the tents at night and on one evening lions eating antelope nearby. As usual for Kicheche camps the furnishings, food and welcome were excellent and...
