Nestled in riverine forest overlooking Kenya’s Masai Mara plains, andBeyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp offers a quintessential safari experience with all the comforts. Set in a private concession leased from Masai landlords, it is a beautiful location on the Sabaringo River, right in the path of the Great Migration, which comes to the Masai Mara between July and October each year. The game viewing is excellent all year round with all the big cats and herds of plains animals resident here. In between game drives you can relax in the beautiful infinity pool with stunning views over the plains.
The 12 luxury tented suites and 28 classic tents are carefully arranged to suit a variety of preferences. Families with children might prefer the classic tents grouped around the main area of the camp with easy access to the swimming pool and open lawns, as well as fantastic views over the plains.
Those looking for more privacy and quiet can choose classic or luxury suites further away, shaded by riverine forest trees and reached by romantic winding paths. There are always Maasai rangers to escort you after dark and enchanting encounters with monkeys and warthogs during the day.
The classic tents were renovated in 2014. All the tents are spacious and comfortable with ensuite bathrooms, stone showers, flush toilets and ample hot water.
Meals are fresh and varied at Kichwa Tembo, with the chef’s secret ingredient his organic vegetable garden at the back of the camp, where fresh salads and herbs are harvested daily. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the main area, but guests can also opt to take picnic breakfasts with them for longer morning game drives and experience the thrill of eating right in the middle of the savannah with only the lions for company.
Two game drives a day, and the option of a bush walk or balloon excursion, offer the very best game viewing. Informative and experienced guides make sure that you get the very best safari experience and excellent value for money, together with all the legendary Masai Mara hospitality and warmth.
