Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp is perfectly situated for those wishing to view the Great Migration, one of the world's most spectacular wildlife events in Kenya. Annually 2 million wildebeest and zebra migrate in a clockwise direction around the Masai Mara and the Serengeti in search of fresh grass and water.
An extensive rebuild has been finished at &Beyond Kichwa Tembo from and is open from July 2014! The 28 of the camp's suites, as well as guest areas, have taken on a brand new look - the rich history, romance, nostalgia and classical safari charm that define the camp has been preserved.
Things to look forward to include contemporary guest areas and creative food preparation areas, including an organic vegetable garden, elevated guest suites with an increase in the number of suites, a new open-air boma, a redesigned Safari Shop with local arts and crafts.
Kichwa Tembo is set on a private concession leased from Maasai landlords in the legendary Masai Mara. It offers a quintessential game viewing experience, with sweeping vistas of the Masai Mara or the Sabaringo River. Located where the riverine forest meets the sweeping plains in the path of the awe-inspiring Great Migration, the camp provides an authentic dose of African wildlife, delivered with legendary Kenyan hospitality.
Go on exciting game drives across the plains to witness The Great Migration and take in other wildlife sightings. Take a dip in the large swimming pool, which boasts some of the best views in the Mara, or go on bush walks along the Mara River or Oloololo Escarpment.
Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp is located in the western section of the Masai Mara. Twice daily flights allow you to fly direct to Kichwa Tembo Airstrip from Wilson Airport in Nairobi. Depending on your itinerary, Kichwa Tembo can be organised as a drive-in destination.
