Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp



Spread out along the Sabaringo River on the edge of the Oloololo ridge, Kichwa Tembo has vast, panoramic views of the Maasai Mara Nature Reserve’s rolling hills, thorny acacias and endless fields.


This renowned camp has stalwart luxury and timelessness weaved into each of its offerings. The main areas of the camp are filled with light beiges, soft couches, the glow of golden lighting and endless folds of luxurious tan curtains. These lead out onto a timber deck where the vastness of the Maasai Mara strikes the eyes from every angle. The turquoise swimming pools that slope out into the escarpment are a favourite for guests, warthogs and other animals alike.

Guests can choose to stay in an assortment of accommodations, tailored to their needs.

The 12 Classic Tents are set in the thickets surrounding the Sabaringo River. They hold comfortable beds and a décor that mixes charcoal shades with strong wood finishes. The en-suite bathroom and wide terrace make this the ideal spot to take in your game viewing.

The 20 Superior Tents offer a greater vantage with their raised foundations. The walls and floor have a blonde wood finish, with light straw and brass trimmings. The en-suite bathroom is beautifully ordained and the porch holds great views through the forest and out into the Maasai Mara Reserve, which can be enjoyed on sumptuous daybeds. 8 Superior View Tents offer all the trimmings and that much more in the way of space, luxury and vistas over the land.

Wildlife and Activities

In August the spectacle of a lifetime begins to unfold as the incredible numbers of Wildebeest gather in the lands visible from the camp. Once ready, they venture across the Mara River. This dangerous journey is unavoidable, as the wildebeest seek grazing land and brings with it outstanding game-viewing that will thrill, shock and excite you with the sheer authenticity of the experience.

The area is rich in zebra, Topi, elephant, buffalo and giraffe, with these animals luring the big cats closer and closer. Among which are the Mara’s renowned black-maned lion, the true kings of this jungle. There are many more wildlife glimpses to behold, including rhino and crocodile, birdlife and insects at each turn. Experience them on a game drive into these lands.

Additionally you can choose from the menu of activities on offer. These include bush breakfasts beside the river, bush dinners under the stars, a trek along the Kichwa Nature Trail where the birdlife are in abundance, hot air balloon rides, photo safaris, night game drives and visits to two of the most popular trails around. Each one of these activities will take you deeper into the eco-system than most humans outside of the Maasai tribe have ever been.
