Kicheche Mara Camp

Kicheche Mara Camp is a classic, luxury bush camp, completely unfenced, hidden in a beautiful acacia valley overlooking the Olare Orok stream. With only 8 tents, the intimate and relaxed atmosphere gives you the opportunity to enjoy a unique experience in the prime wildlife area of the Mara North Conservancy. The camp prides itself on offering a friendly and intimate stay, with our hosts treating you as welcome guests, not just travel statistics.

Mara North Conservancy is a beautiful private wilderness area of more than 30,000 hectares (~74,000 acres). It is a vital part of the Masai Mara ecosystem as it forms the north-western zone, bordering the Masai Mara National Reserve in the south of Kenya. Professional wildlife and tourism management ensures guests truly exclusive and private safari experience with a very low vehicle density.

All meals and drinks are inclusive in your stay and taken al-fresco in a clearing overlooking the plains or, in the event of bad weather, in the spacious dining tent. The cuisine is Western/European with occasional African dishes and hygiene standards are high. We can cater for special dietary requirements however please notify us in advance.
