A classic tented safari camp, Kicheche Mara Camp hides in the beautiful Acacia Valley: one of the Mara North Conservancy’s premier wildlife-viewing areas. Its luxury tents are laid out alongside a seasonal stream from where you can observe myriad birdlife and plains game coming for a drink. The camp lounge also has a stunning view down the valley and offers comfortable seating, a library, board games and local crafts.

With game-viewing frequently starting in the camp itself, this location is ideal. Adjoining the main national park, Mara North provides a private, intimate Maasai Mara safari experience all year round.

Lighting is provided 24 hours a day, unlike at some camps, and each tent has a water dispenser to safely refill bottles and limit plastic usage.
