Description

Kicheche Bush Camp is located in the Maasai Mara Conservation Area within the Olare Orok Conservancy which, with its strict limit on bed numbers, offers an excellent game viewing experience away from the crowds. The camp is located in a prime wildlife area and game viewing starts right from the camp itself. The location is also ideal to experience the wildebeest migration.

Six spacious, fully insect-proof tents are equipped with twin or double beds and overlook the plains. Bathrooms are en-suite and equipped with a dresser, flush toilet and a traditional safari bucket shower with a view.

There is a large open sided dining tent, overlooking the plains which also has a relaxing lounge area with a selection of reference books. Most meals are taken alfresco, beneath the shade of the acacia trees or underneath the stars or in our dining tent.

Kicheche Bush Camp now offers escorted walking safaris with overnight stays in a fly-camp in the bush. These excursions are led by one of Kicheche's senior guides and an armed ranger. It is an outstanding opportunity to see the Mara from a completely different perspective and also offers some welcome exercise whilst on safari. You will explore the smaller aspects of savannah life - birds, grasses, and insects - and may even be lucky enough to encounter some larger game en-route

Accommodation

Kicheche Bush Camp has six fully insect-proof custom designed tents, with twin or double beds, linen, bedside tables, luggage racks and rugs. Bathrooms are en-suite and are equipped with a dresser, flushing toilet and a traditional safari bucket shower with a view. There are comfortable chairs on each verandah overlooking the plains. One tent can be converted into a triple on request.

Childcare

Kicheche Bush Camp welcomes children but the camp is unfenced so is not suited to very young children and for this reason children must be supervised at all times. Food can be tailored to suit children and earlier meal times can be arranged where necessary. Babysitting can be organized for those that require it.

Activities

The activities from Kicheche Bush Camp are based around game viewing and visits to a local village and school. All the guides have expert knowledge on local wildlife and folklore and are ideal companions on a day or night drive or walking safari. Kicheche now offers escorted walking safaris with overnight stays in a fly-camp in the bush. These excursions are led by one of Kicheche's senior guides and an armed ranger. Balloon trips over the Mara can be arranged when required.

Location & Directions

Maasai Mara and Southern Kenya, Kenya

Kicheche Bush Camp is located in the Masai Mara within the Olare Orok Conservancy (created from Koiyaki Group Ranch lands) bordering the Reserve. The camp is located in a prime wildlife area and game viewing starts right from the camp itself. The location is also ideal to experience the wildebeest migration.

When to go

Kicheche Bush Camp is closed in April and May.

The only time to avoid Kenya is during the long rainy season in April and May. November is considered the short rainy season, however, these are less predictable and are much lighter. The best time of year to visit the Maasai Mara is during the Great Wildebeest Migration which tends to pass through the Mara between mid July to late October.
