Kicheche Valley

Kicheche Valley is our premier Mara camp and proud to be listed in the Condé Nast Traveler New Hotels Hotlist for 2012. Kicheche Valley is an intimate luxury tented camp comprising only six luxurious tented suites, tucked in between granite outcrops and trees with breathtaking views over the dramatic game filled valley below. The tents are built on elevated platforms and the decks provide the perfect spot to relax and soak in the wilderness as birds fly through and the animals pass by.

Staying with us in Naboisho opens up a whole new area of the Mara to explore through game driving and/or walking activities. The area encompasses some of the most stunning terrain in the Masai Mara eco-system. The habitat of acacia woodlands, savannah grassland plains, riverine acacia forest and rocky undulating hills provide a varied habitat for browsing and grazing herbivores along with hideout thickets for most predators. With strict controls on bed and vehicle numbers in this community driven conservation area, a high quality wilderness experience is assured all year round.

All meals and drinks are inclusive in your stay and taken in the large lounge/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.
