Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya
With phenomenal views of the Masai Mara and the peaceful Sabaringo River, there’s no doubt &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp evokes a quintessential safari feeling, reminiscent of the traditional African lifestyle. We love the nostalgic feel just as much as the contemporary touches.
The spectacular front seat to the great wildebeest migration is one of the many reasons why this is one of our favourite Kenyan camps. This camp is compact yet romantic, using Africa’s natural beauty to inspire its charming décor and warm, welcoming ambience.
This is one of the larger tented camps with a total of 40 tents, the majority providing woodland views and 8 superior view tents providing views over the Mara plains. Enjoy both buffet and a la carte dining in the large open air dining and lounge area – a lovely way to end a full day on safari.
There are 12 classic tents, all adopting a unique explorer style and featuring a secluded veranda hidden away in the verdant flora. Close by to the calm trickling water of the Sabaringo River, we always enjoy a peaceful evening in these tents.
There are also 20 superior tents and 8 superior view tents. All of these tents feature minimalist, airy décor and are created with local materials. For added privacy, these tents offer a butler hatch, for morning tea and coffee. The superior view tents have uninterrupted views of the endless Masai Mara savannah, whilst the superior tents’ views are obstructed by the odd acacia tree. Children will need to be over the age of eight to stay in a superior view tent.
If it’s incredible safari activities you’re after, you’ve come to the right camp. From watching wildlife roam by the large swimming pool and enjoying fascinating nature walks, to tucking into a bush dinner and seeing the Masai Mara from a new height in a hot air balloon, this camp will offer experiences you won’t forget in a hurry.
This camp is well suited to families with three triples and three family units comprising of two linked superior tents. Children will love the Wildchild programme where they can take part in interactive activities and cultural experiences.
