If a high degree of intimacy and privacy is important for you during your African safari adventure, then look no further than the Kicheche Mara Camp. Located in the Mara North Conservancy in the sweeping Acacia Valley a mere twenty minutes from the Mara North airstrip, this camp offers a high degree of privacy and fantastic game densities. An added bonus is that this is a tented camp, which gives the guest the opportunity to engage with the African wild in closer proximity than if they stayed in a built-up lodge, and game can often be spotted inside the camp!
Guests are treated as welcome friends in this beautiful and comfortable camp, and a high degree of intimacy is allowed by only having eight tents which can accommodate only a limited amount of guests at any one time. All tents are very comfortable and positioned to provide a sweeping vista of the valley below and the Olare Orok stream which teems with wildlife on a constant basis.
Tents also allow maximum privacy and personal space, furniture is practical yet beautiful and the en-suite bathroom attached to each tent has a flush toilet and safari shower. Lighting and hot water are provided by solar power which minimises the environmental footprint of this eco-oriented camp.
But just because this a tented camp does not mean that comfort or facilities are in any way compromised! The central guest area of the camp offers a spacious yet snug lounge area where visitors can recount the events of the day while sipping cocktails and lounging on comfortable furniture. There is also a well-stocked library and if you don’t feel like reading or watching game from the lounge, you may choose to entertain yourself by playing cards, or by enjoying the variety of board games and local crafts.
There are no rigid timetables here and activities are scheduled around the needs of the guests. Regular game drives and bush walks with an experienced guide are recommended. You can visit a local village or see Africa from a hot-air balloon!
