AndBeyond Kichwa Tembo is located in the north-western corner of the Masai Mara, the richest game park in Kenya. Each of Kichwa Tembo's 40 spacious, en suite tents is completely private, tucked away in its own little piece of wild Africa. They have decks with views over the grasslands or forest and en suite bathrooms with shower, hand basin and flush toilet. The camp is set just below the spot where 'Out of Africa' was filmed.

The airy main restaurant is set on a split level deck covered with Maasai thatch grass and is shaded by tall fig and ebony trees. Dinner is often served alfresco, weather-permitting. Private meals are also arranged on request. The courtyard is candlelit in the evening, offering a relaxing area in addition to the bar/lounge which itself has picture windows with views over the surrounding bush. The camp's swimming pool overlooks the plains of the Mara. At night, Askaris (Maasai warrior security guards) accompany guests to and from their tents.

The camp offers morning and afternoon game drives. As the camp is in a private concession night drives are also possible, as are guided bush walks which afford you a different perspective and enable you to get closer to nature. You can visit a Maasai village and watch traditional Maasai dancing. Spectacular hot air balloon rides can be arranged for a bird's eye view of the Masai Mara. Children are welcome at Kichwa Tembo and the WILDChild programme offers fun and informative activities for youngsters.
