Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp, Masai Mara

You have slept beneath canvas in a huge king-size bed, the canvas walls of your luxury tent rolled up to allow in the cool air and the calls of the bush at night. Now you awaken to sunlight streaming into your tent, your private deck just a few steps from the end of your bed and, beyond that, a magnificent vista stretching across the mighty Masai Mara.

A safari is an essential ingredient of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Kenya, and Kichwa Tembo is the perfect base camp. It neatly combines a romantic atmosphere with a sense of nostalgia for the golden age of safaris. Then it goes a step further with modern comforts, excellent wildlife observation and photographic opportunities, and exciting events like sunrise hot air ballooning.
