Kicheche Mara Camp is in Mara North Conservancy, next to the Olare Orok stream. This is a private, unfenced conservancy just north of the Masai Mara National Reserve. It is an excellent, personal safari camp which we recommend without hesitation.

The camp has a calm and slightly less formal feel than some camps, and the team is relaxed and engaging. The guides here are knowledgeable and have a good understanding of the needs of their clients, going that extra mile for a leopard sighting or that special sunset photograph.

There is a flexible approach to activities that aims to avoid a regimented feel to game viewing, such as providing guests with the activities they want and at the time they wish.

Kicheche Mara Camp provides a variety of opportunities to view the Mara's stunning wildlife either on game drives or on foot. Additionally, being outside the National Reserve means guests can have greater access to the Maasai culture. You can experience an authentic Maasai village with a cultural adviser on hand to answer questions and explain the inter-reliance of wildlife and communities.

The 8 tents are very comfortable with an en-suite bathroom, rustic furniture and decorated with Maasai artwork. Outside hammocks and easy chairs make enjoying the views and wildlife that bit easier.

The spacious lounge tent is well-furnished and has a considerable library and a collection of board games. The chef produces delicious meals with a menu featuring both African and international influences. In-camp meals are taken al fresco with guests sitting at the communal table with their hosts and some of the guides. Fresh bread and pastries are baked daily.

Client Rating for Kenya 5/5 from 58 reviews

I will be coming back here. I loved it. The team are excellent, my guide was knowledgeable and friendly (with a real eye for the needs of a photographer), the tents are very comfortable indeed, and the food was some of the best I had on my trip. Couple all this with the fact that it is in the excellent Mara North conservancy, and this is a winning combination. All the Kicheche camps are slightly different yet high quality.
