Activities at Kicheche Bush Camp

Community Trust project

Kicheche’s Community Project & the Olare Orok Trust support a number of schools and projects in the greater area, it is usually possible to pay a visit to them. Any educational gifts or donations that you can contribute are an enormous help to the pupils.

Fly Camping

Kicheche offers escorted walking safaris with overnight stays in a fly-camp in the bush. These excursions are led by one of Kicheche’s senior guides and an armed ranger. It is an outstanding opportunity to see the Mara from a completely different perspective and also offers some welcome exercise whilst on safari. You will explore the smaller aspects of savannah life – birds, grasses, and insects – and may even be lucky enough to encounter some larger game en-route.

Game drive

Early morning and late afternoon are the most productive hours for game drives and our safari customised 4WD vehicles give everyone a perfect view. Watching wildlife at close range, but without encroaching on their space, is endlessly fascinating and our guides’ instincts and experience provide superb photo opportunities of wild animals.
Our vehicles are superbly designed for photographers, all our fleet is open-sided with open roofs. Cameras can be rested on the roof, with supplied beanbags, or on the armrests lower down, to which we can mount simple platforms for larger lenses.

Horse Riding

See The Mara from a different angle - on horseback; available at Kicheche Bush Camp with Ride Kenya. Guests will be picked up at camp and taken to the stables 15 minutes away. The ride will explore the exclusive wilderness areas of Olare Motorogi Conservancy.
Morning and afternoon 2 hours riding sessions available at $250 per person.
Basic riding experience required.

Hot Air Balooning

This is a popular excursion in the Masai Mara. Balloons take off early each morning at sunrise and glide over the plains for approximately an hour before landing. Upon touchdown a champagne breakfast is set up before you. The excursion finishes with a game drive back to camp. Price is around US$450 per person and trips can be booked through your tour operator or with the balloon operator.

Maa Trust Visit

This is a wonderful opportunity for guests to interact with Maasai women, watch and learn about their bead-work and learn more about The Trust's efforts towards conservation through sustainable community development.

Maasai Village visit

Guests can visit one of the local Maasai villages to see first-hand their way of life. A village guide or your Kicheche guide will give you an interpretive talk during your visit during which there may be some traditional dancing. Village made souvenirs are on sale. There is a charge of $15-$20 per person.
