Kicheche Bush Camp

Bush Camp is an intimate tented camp owned in partnership with photographer Paul Goldstein. As a result, there is a keen focus on wildlife viewing and photography here, making this a popular camp that safari enthusiasts flock to year after year.

The attentive staff are always around to help with drinks and requests, bending over backwards to make sure that you enjoy your stay. The engaging and approachable managers, who host meals and greet you off every drive, create a very homely and welcoming atmosphere.

The six identical tents at Kicheche Bush Camp are spread far apart, making each very private. They are vast and much more complex than your average safari tent, with rooms created by canvas walls. During the day these are opened right up to create quite an open-plan room, but at night the various areas can be separated off, enclosing you in a smaller and cosier bedroom.

The main camp is simple yet luxurious and well-furnished. There is a relaxing lounge and dining area although, wherever possible, meals are served al fresco to let you enjoy the great views over the game-filled plains.

You’ll need to tear yourself away from the lovely tents to join the activities at Kicheche Bush Camp, which focus mainly on game drives in comfortable, open-sided 4WD vehicles.

The Olare Motorogi Conservancy lends itself to excellent walking safaris which is one of the best ways to really experience its beauty ‘up close and personal’ in the company of experienced and knowledgeable bush guides.

You can include an overnight stay in a ‘Fly Camp’ which is a fully-staffed basic but comfortable mobile camp consisting of 2-man dome tents with camp cots. The walks aren’t strenuous (about 5 km) and allow you to appreciate the finer details of the African bush with all its plants, grasses, insects, animal spoors, burrows and, on occasion, close encounters with big game.

Activities offered from camp:

MAA trust visits; Game drives; Maasai Village visits (additional cost); Hot Air Ballooning (additional cost); Wild Camping; Community Trust Projects.
