Kicheche Bush Camp

Masai Mara Amboseli & the South

Rating: Deluxe    

Kicheche Bush Camp overview

A wonderful bush experience in an intimate camp offering an excellent wildlife experience in an ecofriendly way.

Kicheche Bush Camp is in Kenya's Masai Mara, within the Olare Motorogi Conservancy bordering the Reserve. The camp is located in a prime wildlife area and game viewing starts right from the camp itself. This is an ideal place to experience the wildebeest migration.

This is a small intimate seasonal camp which, whilst providing a true African bush experience does not compromise on comfort or service. Each of the six en-suite tents is furnished with twin or double beds, linen, bedside tables, luggage racks and rugs. Bathrooms are en-suite and are equipped with a dresser, flushing toilet and a traditional safari bucket shower with a view. There are comfortable chairs on each verandah overlooking the plains. One tent can be converted into a triple on request. There is a spacious, well furnished lounge and dining tent, although most of the time dining takes place outdoors.

The usual daily routine at Kicheche Bush Camp consists of a wake up call at your tent door with tea, coffee or hot chocolate with home made biscuits delivered. Then an early morning game drive at sunrise and back to camp late morning for a leisurely breakfast outside the lounge. Alternatively breakfast can be a picnic eaten during the game drive. After lunch in camp you enjoy a siesta under the shade of your veranda or rest in the lounge. Afternoon game drives go out about 4pm after tea and cakes when the temperature drops and the animals are more active again. Sundowners are enjoyed out on the plains then you return to camp, freshen up and enjoy pre-dinner drinks round the camp fire and dinner by candle light.

The four Kicheche camps minimise their impact on the environment by such means as removing all non-biodegradable waste to Nairobi, using recycled charcoal dust pellets for water heating, and using solar power for all lighting and refrigeration. In addition they minimize wastage from plastic drinking bottles each room has a dispenser filled with mineral water.  

The camps fund the Kicheche Community Trust which helps projects in and around the conservancy communities where they operate. Their mission is to encourage the preservation of the environment whilst improving the welfare of the community through improved health and education facilities. They strive to empower the community through revenue earning projects too. The Trust builds on four corner posts of Community Welfare: Education, Health and Family Care, Community Empowerment and Environmental Conservation. 

They also support the Koiyaki Guiding School which trains local Masai to become guides. The Kicheche Community Project has fast become a reliable source of funding for projects in and around the Aitong area, such as the Olkimitare Nursery School, Aitong Academy Primary School, and the CMF Aitong Health Clinic.
