About The Lodge
&Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp, a Masai Mara safari lodge, is superbly located on the edge of this iconic safari destination, with the impressive views being just the start of the safari experience delivered by Wildlife Safari: excellent year-round game viewing and warm hospitality.
Two things pervade &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp: the spirit of the local Maasai people, on whose land it’s built, and the magnificent surrounding area. Decor elements provide a nod to the unique style of the landlords, while this Masai Mara safari lodge is built around the amazing views.
&Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp feels smaller than it is, both because of the vastness of the landscape it overlooks and because the staff are experts at creating a sense of safari intimacy. The scale of the Mara is brought home during the Great Wildebeest Migration, when hundreds of thousands of antelope pass through, but that’s by no means the only reason to visit.
The wildlife viewing is exceptional in every season, with the surrounding area noted for sightings of leopard and black rhino, in particular.
The lodge’s setting – in the foothills of the wonderfully named Oloololo Escarpment – add an extra degree of perspective to what were already wonderful views. So compelling are the panoramas, in fact, that even the oversized beds in the guest rooms are orientated to make the most of them.
Activities starting from this Masai Mara safari lodge are designed to reveal the wonders of the area at Nature’s own pace, with guided bush walks along the Sabaringo River providing opportunities to slow things down, and day and night game drives consistently resulting in unforgettable sightings.
There’s even the opportunity to rise over the plains in a hot-air balloon, if you want a serious spoil.
&Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp appeals to first-timers and families as much as to safari veterans; children of any age are welcome, and can participate in the fun, educational WILDChild programme. Parents can even recruit willing childminders when they feel the need to have some grown-up savannah time.
