Kicheche Bush Camp

Situated within the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, Kicheche Bush Camp is a small, classic, intimate, luxury tented camp completely unfenced, amongst stunning whistling thorn acacias. The ultra low-impact spread of six guests tents in the trees and low escarpment beyond, provide the perfect hideaway in this outstanding wilderness. The personal attention at camp and exclusivity of the conservancy offer a winning combination.

Through its strict limit on bed numbers, the Conservancy offers an incomparable game viewing experience without crowds. There are 30,000 acres of rolling grassland, hills, escarpment and the Motorogi plains located immediately to the north of the Ol Kiombo area of the Reserve. Within Olare Motorogi there is great walking country and also the opportunity to overnight in a fly camp.

All meals and drinks are inclusive in your stay and taken al-fresco, beneath the shade of the acacia trees or underneath the stars or in our dining tent. We have a fully stocked bar with a range of wines. Drinks are included with the meals. Picnic breakfasts and lunches are also available on game driving excursions.
