Kichwa Tembo Bateleur Camp
Meaning ‘Head of the Elephant’ in Kiswahili, Kichwa Tembo Bateleur Camp is located on a private concession leased from Maasai landlords in the exclusive western Mara.
Renowned as one of Kenya’s best-loved safari lodges, Kichwa Tembo is set below the Oloololo Escarpment of the Great Rift Valley, affording great views of the Masai Mara’s game-filled plains.
The main thatched guest areas include a welcoming bar/sitting area, indoor and outdoor dining areas and a well-stocked gift shop featuring African art, artefacts and safari-wear. The swimming pool is perfect for laid-back game viewing while cooling off.
Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp also presents you with the opportunity to explore the Masai Mara’s Big 5 territory on morning and afternoon game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles. Hot-air balloon rides, spectacular bush breakfasts or dinners, interpretive bush walks and night game drives can also be arranged.
Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp is situated on the western border of the Masai Mara National Reserve, in south-west Kenya.
