andBeyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp
Maasai Mara, Kenya - Classic 4
Kichwa Tembo is situated at the foot of the Oloololo Escarpment on the western border of the Masai Mara Reserve in southwestern Kenya. Meaning 'Head of the Elephant' in KiSwahili, Kichwa Tembo is located on a private concession leased from Maasai landlords in the exclusive western Mara - much less crowded than the eastern part of the Reserve.
In addition to an excellent year-round concentration of animals, Kichwa Tembo lies directly in the path of Africa's spectacular Great Migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti, Tanzania, to the Masai Mara in Kenya. This is indeed nature at her most theatrical, offering you an African wildlife experience unsurpassed in the world.
Kichwa Tembo's 40 spacious en-suite canvas safari tents with private verandas offer magical views over the Masai Mara grasslands or the Sabaringo River. The main thatched guest areas include a welcoming bar/sitting area, indoor and outdoor dining areas and a well-stocked gift shop featuring African art, artifacts and safari-wear. The swimming pool is perfect for laid-back game viewing whilst cooling off.
Relax in the candlelit bar in the evening before enjoying delicious Pan-African cuisine served alfresco style outdoors or in the main dining area. Private dining and exciting bush banquets may be arranged on request.
Explore the Masai Mara's Big Five territory on morning and afternoon game-drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles. Hot-air balloon rides, spectacular bush breakfasts or dinners, interpretive bush walks and night game-drives make for an unforgettable safari, and may be arranged at an additional cost.
