Overview

Kicheche Mara is arguably the best value high quality, small camp in the Masai Mara ecosystem. There are just eight simple tents set within the bush overlooking the Olare Orok river, each comfortably furnished with en-suite bathrooms and cedar beds. The camp lounge has a stunning view down the valley with comfortable seating and a library.

The Camp is set in a prime wildlife area within the 30,000 hectares Mara North Conservancy bordering the main park. There are no fences within the Masai Mara ecosystem, so wildlife can move freely through the Conservancy and National Park. One visit into the main Masai Mara Reserve is included with a 3 night stay, but the quality of safari experience is usually better within Mara North, where visitor and vehicle numbers are heavily restricted. One of the big attractions of the location is that unlike the main reserve, you are not restricted to keeping within the vehicle at all times. Visitors tend to combine morning and late afternoon game drives with bush walks (with guide and armed ranger) and visits to local Maasai villages.

Kicheche Mara Camp is an excellent option for adventurous families. The ability to combine game drives with more active walks provides a great contrast for children (and adults), and families benefit from a private guide and vehicle for game drives. The camp offers a two-bedroom, tented suite, which is ideal for parents and children to share. This unit comprises one double and one triple bedroom, each with an ensuite bathroom, and a spacious lounge with a comfy sofa, plus a dining table and chairs. Note that triple and ‘quad’ family tents are also available. Private dining is available upon request, and menus and meal-times can be tailored to suit individual family preferences.

  • We had the most incredible time thank you. We loved Karen Blixen camp and felt part of a family there, it was incredibly special. And Breezes was very relaxing.
    We can't fault all the transfers and the moment we were greeted on the tarmac at Nairobi airport we knew we were going to be well cared for.

    Thank you so much to you and all the Tourdust team for making it such a happy and memorable trip.

  • We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.

    Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.

    Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.

    Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!

    One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.

    Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

  • We had an amazing time thank you. The itinerary was great as we felt like we saw lots of different things and it kept it interesting for our daughter. She especially loved the gorge at Hells Gate.

    Unfortunately the Menengai Crater walk was a bit hard for her although that probably had something to do with how hot it was!

    We especially loved the Sunbird Lodge - it is such a beautiful place and all the staff were so incredibly welcoming and friendly.

    Our guide, Joseph, was exceptional too and we can’t speak highly enough of him.
