There is a great variety of safari camps in the Masai Mara, yet Kichwa Tembo stands out for several reasons. The camp is situated in the remote western part of the Mara, right at the escarpment with stunning views over the Great Plains. Kichwa Tembo is a private concession right at the gate to the Masai Mara. Gate meaning, there is a gate where one pays the park fees, but there is no fence. Wildlife is roaming free.
But why should one visit Kichwa Tembo and not one of the other camps?
A visit to the Masai Mara with its year-round astounding concentration of wildlife and being the site of the Great Wildebeest Migration is always rewarding. There is no day and no game drive with no animals. Great wildlife sightings are pretty much guaranteed in the Mara and it is heaven for wildlife photography enthusiasts. The Masai Mara is year-round spectacular and going in low season allows more intimate wildlife sightings due to less vehicles being in the reserve. An African safari in the Masai Mara should be on top of the list for Africa holidays.
