Kicheche Mara Camp (Masai
Kicheche Mara Camp is located on the Aitong Plains in the
northern Koiyaki Lemek Region of the famous Masai Mara. The
camp is located in a prime wildlife area and game viewing
starts right from the camp itself. Access is from Ngerende
airstrip, 35 minutes game drive away.
Kicheche Mara Camp is a classic tented camp hidden in a
grove of wild olive and croton trees in a prime wildlife
area of the northern Mara plains. The camp is fully hosted
and limited to twenty two guests.
The camp prides itself on offering a friendly and
relaxing stay, with our hosts treating you as welcome
guests, not mere travel statistics. To maintain this
intimate and relaxed atmosphere there is a maximum of twenty
two guests at any time. Each tent is comfortably furnished
with an en-suite bathroom and flushing toilet, low wattage
lighting is supplied 24 hours.
The majority of the tents are in secluded positions
overlooking the plains and nearby hills, while others are
closer together for families or friends. Triple and Quad
tents (1 double & 2 single beds) are also available. The
spacious Nyati tent acts as the camp lounge with comfortable
seating, a library, board games, cards and local crafts.
Game Viewing & Activities:
Early morning and late afternoon are the most productive
hours for game drives and our safari customized 4WD vehicles
give everyone a perfect view. Watching wildlife at close
range, but without encroaching on their space, is endlessly
fascinating and our guides' instincts and experience provide
superb photo opportunities of wild animals. Our vehicles are
superbly designed for photographers, all our fleet is
open-sided with open roofs. Cameras can be rested on the
roof, with supplied beanbags, or on the armrests lower down,
to which we can mount simple platforms for larger lenses.
For complete flexibility it is recommended that you take a
vehicle on an exclusive use basis (At extra cost).
A different perspective is gained through escorted walks
on the savannah. Safety is paramount when leaving camp on
foot so all walks are escorted by an armed ranger.
Our interpretive guides will point out the spoor of a
leopard, the nest of a rare bird or signs of recent
migration activity that would pass unnoticed by the eyes of
