SPECTACULAR WILDLIFE SIGHTINGS

Zebra birth Olare Conservancy
Special Delivery

Within four hundred metres from the most easterly wing of Bush Camp, Dickson slows his cruiser. There appears to be most of East Africa's zebra grazing on the nutritious pastures North of camp. However, he has singled out one, there is something different about this animal many hundreds of metres away, a difference not noticeable to most human eyes.

Perfect Storm
Perfect Storm

Twala wrinkles his Maasai nose mid-morning: ' it's too hot' he murmurs, almost as if he can smell the heat. The short grass bakes under a searing equatorial sun and the mercury nudges 30. It is too hot and moments later the first distant cumulus morphs on the horizon indicating potential drama that afternoon.

King Charles
King Charles

Charles Wandero is a Kicheche fixture. Charles Wandero is also man blessed with almost superhuman perception, vitality and indeed skill, so when a violent storm drills his Conservancy for hours he is not put off. However, the Ntiaktiak has swollen to a turbulent and terrifying torrent but unbowed he slides his 4WD with impossible skill to gain a view of an alpha male in the sunrise before negotiating more floodwaters (the stream had risen nine feet) to watch the two boys reluctantly cross the river. 

Howe’s about these cats?
Howe’s about these cats?

The early glow paints the young male impala as it struts around the skittish herd, eager to be box office but aware he will never topple the king and probably struggle to knock over the 25 other young male adversaries to even get to this antelope throne.

The Long game
The Long game

Kicheche's New Year message is all about longevity: guests wanting to stay longer, new offers, lengthy staff tenures and Eco awards retained. Oh and a bit of canvas chatter.

Christmas Epistle
Christmas Epistle

'Twas the night before Christmas When all through the camp Every animal was stirring From lions to elephant (sorry) They had roared and they had sung And managers had glared In hoping that dawn's angel Would soon be there.

My group LOVED everything about the camp, the staff, guides and food. It was just perfect, the best experience !
Suzi Eszterhas
As a tour leader I have stayed at many camps in East Africa and I can honestly say Kicheche Mara is in the top due to its guides and it’s hospitality. An important factor for me also is its special accommodations for photographers. I plan many return visits.
