Kicheche Bush Camp
Why we like it
- Located in the Masai Mara, within the new Olare Orok Conservancy, it is a prime area for wildlife and game viewing
- It is a small, intimate tented bush camp with six en suite tents
- Activities include game drives, walking safaris, meals in the bush and cultural visits
- Hot air balloon trips and fly camping can also be arranged at an additional cost
- At Kicheche Bush Camp the emphasis is on a genuine safari experience
Relaxing on the comfortable chairs on a private veranda with views over the spectacular Mara plains was an incredible way to spend the afternoon.
This is the second trip we have done with A&K. (The first was in 1999.) We were very impressed with A&K on the first trip. We were even more impressed with A&K on the second trip. Consequently, we are already considering a third trip with A&K – to Egypt in March 2014.
