I am a Kicheche fan now, after staying at second camp. Every single person involved makes you feel like a guest at their home instead of a customer. We were received by interim manager Thorburn, who welcomed us and oversaw everything smoothly. When regular managers Darren and

Bush camp was absolutely fantastic. The luxury tents were very comfortable and relaxing. Food was outstanding, service great, and James our guide brilliant. Located on the Olare conservancy, the quality of game viewing was exceptional.

This was the third Kicheche Camp that we visited on our fortnight in Kenya. They were all great but, because of our guide, Vinnie, and the amazing assortment of animals that we saw, this may have been the best. The accommodations were similar to Lakipia and the Valley. One

Hi Claire, All of the Kicheche camps attract photographers because of the quality of the guides, all are silver level guides with extraordinary knowledge of the flora and fauna, their understanding of the wildlife and spotting skills are renowned. Also Kicheche camps are in the Masai Mara Conservancies and not the Reserve. This makes all the difference because there is a restriction on vehicles around wildlife - max 5 vehicles where you can have 20 or more minibuses and other vehicles in the reserve. Kicheche have open roofed and sided landcruisers which cater for everyones spectacular viewing whether it is just using binoculars but to be honest you are invariably respectfully close to the Big Cats/Elephants etc that Iphone snaps are often pretty good these days. Serious photographers tend to book weeks at a time so you wouldn't feel out of place. Depending how many nights you have I would recommend doing two camps and a fly camp in between. Out of the three camps in the Mara Bush Camp is closest to the reserve should you be there during migration ( approx June - Oct) and want to try and see a Wildebeest crossing but otherwise there is so much game and resident wildebeest in the Kicheche conservancies that you will not be short of wildlife encounters.

Apologies for slowness in reply but we like to add plenty of walking in all our safaris. You may not cover the ground that you do in a vehicle but you get a wonderful experience and see so many things and learn so much that is lost when travelling in a vehicle. You also get a superb perspective of the animals when you pass them on foot!

Congratulations - you will have a beautiful wedding. I am confident they will do their best to accommodate. It is important you notify them well in advance. They plan their supplies to accommodate preferences that guests have told them of. We notified them a month prior to arrival that 3 of us don’t eat pork and they accommodated - we had vegetarian scotch eggs while others had traditional ones, we ate chicken sausages while other guests were served pork ones. Typically all guests eat together around one table, so strict vegetarians could be dining side-by-side with meat lovers - each with their own plate of food heaven. Their simple bush kitchen strives to cater to a diverse range of requirements all at the same time. Enjoy the important moment and enjoy yourselves. Speak directly to Darren and Emma, the camp managers.
