Why we like it
- Located in the Naboisho Conservancy
- An intimate luxury camp with just 6 tents
- Activities on offer are morning and late afternoon game drives, walks into the bush, a visit to the local Masai Village as well as visits to the community projects
- Kicheche guides have the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association Bronze qualification as a minimum and are highly regarded
- Kicheche Valley is run by experienced hosts and offers a stunning base to explore the wonders of the Masai Mara
Sitting on your own private deck of your tent looking out to the savannah was the perfect way to spend a relaxing afternoon sheltered from the midday sun and watching the wildlife pass by.
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.
