"Terrific camp, great game viewing."
As with the Mara camp, the accommodation was excellent, although due to the large insect population we were unable to open up the front of the tent as we had done in the past. That's not the camps fault, just the time of the year. The weather for our stay was lovely, quite hot most of the time, however we did experience a sudden and torrential downpour one evening which made getting from the tent to the dining area interesting. Apparently over 50mm fell in 1 hour according to Darren.
This made for some interesting and challenging driving for our guide Charles the following day, we never got stuck despite the conditions.
The food was excellent, always a number of options at lunch accompanied with different breads baked by Darren.. Dinner was also excellent and watched over with a careful eye by Kennedy.
Game viewing was terrific, with some excellent predator sightings including leopards, Tito and cub plus a pregnant Fig.
It's hard to find fault with any aspect of the camp, even the bucket showers!!.

"Kicheche Bush Camp - excellent as ever"
"Kicheche Bush Camp review"
This is an intimate camp that emphasizes game thrives and time in the bush. The tents are airy and spacious, with en suite restrooms and bucket showers. Of all the Kicheche camps, this one seems to attract more hardcore safari enthusiasts, many of them repeat visitors staying 8 or more nights (which is fine with us). The guiding here is superlative.
At our request, we had Patrick again, and he did not disappoint. He is a master at positioning the vehicle for the best photographic opportunities. Olare-Motorogi Conservancy continues to be a hotbed of leopard activity. We saw 6 individual leopards in 4 days, some on multiple occasions. Other highlights included a cheetah kill and a large pride of lions with playful cubs." See all these reviews: 14n in Kenya

The roads and paths were muddy in some places due to earlier rains which made driving a bit difficult at times." See all these reviews: 11n in Kenya

"Busy Camp review"
The tents are fantastic and we all enjoy the rustic showers!
Our guides were Patrick and James and we had such fun with them both! They are very knowledgeable and personable -- and it was fun to be with James so soon after his return from London where he receive international accolades for his skills as a guide! All of the staff were wonderful!" See all these reviews: 12n in Kenya
Didn't love the trip to the Massai Village - I think learning about historical and present day Massai people is a good thing, but i didn't think this visit was a good way to do it. Maybe a talk by a Massai cultural professor at our camp might have been a way.
Really enjoyed our camp managers." See all these reviews: 7n in Kenya; 3n in Tanzania
"Perfect location with delightful staff"
This camp exceeded my expectations in every way. The animal viewing was beyond my imagination. Not only were there several early morning sightings of hyena's feeding , but also large lion prides feeding. and crossing the plains on their way back home.
Spent most of one day following the famous 5 cheetah boys. Just amazing! Lots of animals to see and not crowded, at all. Be sure to visit the Maa Trust which supports the local community with various projects including beautiful beadwork by local women." See all these reviews: 7n in Kenya; 3n in Tanzania
