Kichwa Tembo

Located in the Masai Mara, along the Sabaringo River on the edge of the Oloololo escarpment, Kichwa Tembo camp looks out onto the plains of the Masai Mara.

Set on a private concession leased from Masai landlords in the north of the Mara, the camp offers total seclusion and abundant wildlife.

The safari tents look out onto the plains or wooded rivers, and are designed in the Hemingway-style to replicate the early safari days. On the grounds is an inviting swimming pool, hammocks are strung in the garden and resident warthog stroll around freely.

Guests can choose to escape to the massage room and indulge in a relaxing treatment, or browse the redesigned Safari Shop, which offers the finest Kenyan handicrafts.The rim-flow swimming pool, literally on the edge of the Mara, boasts one of the most extraordinary views.

With the many conservation and community projects the management and guides at Kichwa Tembo are involved in, there is a sense of reassurance that staying at Kichwa Tembo not only benefits the camp, but also the livelihood of the local communities.

After a total rebuild, the &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp complements the beauty of the Masai Mara. With Panoramic views of the plains and Sabaringo River, tents have a minimalist style to blend with the natural surrounds, while interiors showcase tribal art. Guests are invited to pick vegetables from the camp gardens for meals…

The camp was beautiful. The staff were knowledgable, accommodating, and very welcoming. I would stay here again and will recommend it to my friends and family. The time we spent here couldn’t have been better. Our overall experience staying here was exceptional!!
