Maasai Mara, Kenya
Kicheche Mara Camp
  • Meru style tented camp in the game rich Mara North Conservancy

  • Guided walks with experianced guides

  • Eat out under the stars

  • Guests gather together each evening to discuss the days game viewing

Hidden in a grove of wild olive trees in the heart of the Mara North Conservancy, a prime wildlife area, the eight safari tents at Kicheche Mara Camp have been designed to have minimal impact on the local environment. The simple but comfortable safari tents are carefully positioned so that they blend into the surrounding bush, and numerous animals wander through the camp totally unperturbed.

The central lounge of the camp is made up of spacious Nyati tents that house a library and an area ideal for relaxing. Most meals are taken alfresco, overlooking the plains, and the food is a combination of African and international dishes.

Game driving is available throughout the area and each day you will chat about the possible activities with your experienced guide. Trips to the local Maasai villages are on offer for those interested in Maasai culture. There are a number of escorted nature walks available from the camp. All walks are escorted by a Kicheche guide with a radio, and an armed ranger. The camp can also arrange an overnight in a fly camp on request. Guests leave on foot in the afternoon from camp and walk to a bush camp that has been set up consisting of dome tents and a single bush shower and toilet. Upon arrival, guests can enjoy drinks around the fire and a three course meal for dinner. Guests depart for the Bush camp on foot, shortly after breakfast, the following morning.

Sitting under the stars having dinner with lanterns hanging in the trees and all the sounds of the Mara was an absolute highlight!

It is an 8-hour 30-minute international flight to Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Airport, then its 30-minutes by road to Wilson Domestic Airport. Two scheduled 1-hour flights operate from Nairobi’s Wilson airport on a daily basis, to Shikar airstrip. From the airstrip it's then a 20-minutes game drive to the camp.
