Kichwa Tembo

Laid out along the Sabaringo River on the edge of the Oloololo escarpment, &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp looks out onto the plains of the Masai Mara. Set on a private concession leased from Masai landlords in the north of the Mara, the camp offers total seclusion and abundant wildlife. It was included as one of Travel & Leisure’s 500 Best Hotels, as selected by their readers.  Each of the tents and suites are laid out in immaculate grounds, with leisurely groups of warthog feeding right outside the tent doors.  Browse for souvenirs of your safari in the well-stocked Safari Shop or share your experiences around an evening cocktail in the bar. Meals packed with fresh ingredients and flavoured with aromatic spices are served in the simple but elegant dining room, open to the warm breezes coming off the Mara or beneath myriad stars looking out onto the African plains.
