Kicheche Bush Camp is a comfortable tented camp located in the rolling hills of the exclusive Olare Motorogi Conservancy close to the border of the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Kicheche Bush is a camp for wildlife enthusiasts and travellers who enjoy an intimate and communal camp environment. The setting is very much in the wild, with views through sparse acacia woodland towards the open plains and hills beyond. The camp feels like a very luxurious mobile camp and is well managed with friendly service and excellent guiding. Meals are taken communally in the mess tent, where there is also a small lounge area, whilst drinks are enjoyed together around the camp fire. The accommodation tents are very spacious, nicely furnished and comfortable, though the focus of your stay should be on the safari experience rather than luxury and relaxation. Kicheche Bush tends to attract safari travellers and photographers who are passionate about wildlife.


There are six identical accommodation tents at Kicheche Bush, each set on the ground with views out through the light acacia woodland and across the plains. The tents are set far enough apart to offer privacy with three tents on each side…
