Kicheche Valley

Kicheche Valley is a very comfortable and intimate tented lodge located in a secluded valley in the heart of the exclusive Naboisho Conservancy bordering the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Kicheche Valley is the most comfortable and permanent of all the Kicheche camps, with large tents that are quite contemporary and luxurious in style. However, despite this level of comfort and permanence, the camp retains an intimate bush atmosphere with communal dining, fire-side drinks and personal hosting. The Naboisho Conservancy has improved dramatically in game viewing terms over the last five years and now offers arguably the most exclusive game viewing in the Mara. Offering a wonderful blend of comfort and adventure, with the expected high quality Kicheche guiding, Kicheche Valley is a great option for both first timers and old safari hands.
