Reached through the Ol Seki airstrip, Kicheche Valley Camp is a 10 minute drive away from the landing strip. This conservation-minded camp is nestled along the eastern parts of the magnificent Mara Naboisho Conservancy. A place strewn with the unique angles of the acacia tree’s foliage and the granite outcroppings of the Enniskeria River Region. Most impressive is the game viewing and the path that runs near the camp that elephants use as a personal highway.
Tasteful and eclectic in furnishings, from mottled stone floors to comfortable sofas, you’ll be astounded that a place of such decadence can exist in the bush. The lounge area is equipped for all of your needs, from your favourite drink to an assortment of literature. Experience your sundowners on a Persian rug, strewn with pillows, lit with hurricane lanterns, gifted with snacks and overlooking the open acres of pristine Kenyan bush.
The 6 tent suites are opulent and spacious. The canvas and netting are insect-proof, whilst the en-suite bathrooms have running water, flushing toilets, wooden floors and his and her basins. Bordered by a timbered deck, you’ll have a panoramic view of the valley and all its inhabitants from the comfort of your armchair. The cedar beds, polished wood floors and Persian rugs transform the rustic bush into a luxurious getaway that is scarcely matched.
