Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp, &Beyond

This is the smaller &Beyond property that lies just next to the infamous Bateleur Tented Camp. Where Bateleur is aimed at the very top end of the market, Kichwa is aimed at less of an expensive price bracket. Featuring a good standard of rooms, the camp is located not far from the entrance to the Mara Reserve. This is without doubt one of the best value options in the whole of East Africa, offering the full andBeyond experience at a fraction of the typical cost.

Kichwa Tembo

Immortalised through famous tales of olden day safaris, the Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the richest and most diverse wildlife areas in the world. Known as the ‘spotted land’ to the Maasai, the reserve is home to a vast number of resident wildlife, as well as part of the annual phenomenon of the Great Migration. The migratory wildebeest, zebra, kongoni and topi join abundant elephant, hippo, buffalo, giraffe, lion and cheetah in the Mara. Leopard and serval are frequently encountered, while endangered black rhino can be found in the dense bush thickets.
The Mara River is also famed for its enormous crocodiles, which lay in wait for the wildebeest and zebra during the excitement and drama of the migration. Six species of primates and over 450 species of bird add to the Mara’s incredible natural diversity making it one of the best Africa Safaris on the continent.
