This was my first safari and it exceeded all my expectations! The camp is small with 6 beautiful tents which was perfect as you feel that you are visiting Darren and Emma's home vs. being just one in a crowd at a bigger camp. Darren...More
I've stayed at Kicheche Bush Camp at least once a year for the last 8 years - why do I keep going back? First and foremost, the conservancy and the proximity to the reserve make it the perfect place to stay if you want a...More
My first visit to Kicheche Bush Camp did not disappoint. This was my 7th safari with Kicheche having spent time at other Kicheche camps over the past 11 years. The difference at Bush Camp is its location in the conservancy which delivered some of the...More
After staying at a sister camp in Northern Kenya we hit the Mara and wasn’t disappointed at all the camp just like the first one we stayed at was so well run! Amazing facilities and even the posh bucket showers (you wouldn’t even know they...More
There are no words to adequately describe our experience at Kicheche Bush Camp. Darren and Emma welcomed us as we arrived, which made us feel at home instantly.
The tents were as posh as you can get without compromising the feel of camping in the...More

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

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!
