Kicheche Mara Camp
Kicheche Mara Camp lies within the Mara North Conservancy, just outside Kenya’s famous Masai Mara National Reserve. The camp has a very low impact on the habitat, and is set in a beautiful location in the remote Acacia Valley of the conservancy, through which wild animals wander undisturbed.
Accommodation & Facilities
The camp has nine tents with views of the valley and the surrounding grassy plains. Two of the tents are suited to families, one with space for four beds in a larger bedroom, and the other with two bedrooms and a shared lounge. The tents have en-suite bathrooms with a solar heated shower and a flush loo. Although there is a dining tent, most meals are eaten outdoors. There is a separate communal tent with comfy chairs, a great place to relax with a small library of reference books.
Wildlife & Activities
Day and evening drives with Kicheche Mara Camp’s experienced guides in customised 4×4 vehicles allow guests to view the incredible wildlife for which the Masai Mara is renowned. Between July and October huge herds of wildebeest and zebra migrating from the adjoining Serengeti swell the substantial numbers of resident animals, creating one of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles. Thanks to the large amount of prey in the area, fearsome predators such as crocodiles, lions, leopards and cheetahs abound in the Mara North Conservancy. Walking safaris are on offer here, and provide a very different perspective of the fauna and flora of this amazing reserve. Fly camping can be arranged in advance.
