Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp is an oasis of Hemingway-style tents shaded by dense forest canopy.
Each luxurious tent has a private deck with sweeping views of the greatest grassland system on earth, the Masai Mara in Kenya.
It lies deep in a monkey-rich forest on the exclusive western side of the Masai Mara on a private concession leased from Maasai which is much less crowded than the eastern part of the Reserve.
It has an excellent year-round concentration of animals and lies directly in the path of Africa’s spectacular Great Migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra.
The camp features forty tents which appear to be a bit aged but offer sweeping views of the rolling Mara plains.
The main thatched guest areas include a bar and sitting area, indoor and outdoor dining areas and a swimming pool which is perfect for laid-back game viewing whilst cooling off.
Kichwa Tembo is situated at the foot of the Oloololo Escarpment on the western border of the Masai Mara Reserve in southwestern Kenya.
