See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Kichwa Tembo

Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp is situated on the spur of the Oloololo escarpment of the Great Rift Valley, with spectacular views across the open plains of the Maasai Mara.

The camp is made up of 40 "Hemingway-style" safari tents with private shower, toilet and private terrace overlooking the savannah. All tents are tastefully furnished with lots of natural wood and traditional African pieces to add a splash of colour to the otherwise neutral colour scheme. There are 12 Classic tents, 20 Superior tents and 8 Superior View tents.

When it comes to dining, Pan-African cuisine is served in the beautiful thatched central building, which has open sides so that views can still be enjoyed as you dine. Alternatively opt to eat under the stars on the terrace. After dinner guests will want to head to the boma for a drink or two around the fire.

With the Maasai Mara on the doorstep guests can expect to see a wealth of wildlife, including the Big Five, on early morning and afternoon game drives. Alternatively opt to try a bush walk along the Mara River or Oloololo Escarpment, or simply relax by the camp's swimming pool and admire the views from there. If you're visiting between July and October you'll also want to head out and try to catch a river crossing during the Great Migration.
