The Queen – Fig Tribute

The Kicheche inbox has been groaning for a fortnight now with cwt. of Fig images. (Particularly from those who sent them at 10MB resolution or Tiff files!!) As important as the beautiful imagery are, the many heartfelt words touched us all and particularly those at Bush Camp.  

Fig, leopard, queen of Olare Conservancy, Masai Mara Kenya

RIP FIG 2012 - March 5th 2022 The Queen is dead ...Guides and guests stood by traumatised this evening as a brutal Alpha male invaded a small unthreatening enclave North of the Ntiakntiak river and butchered its inhabitant.Despite brave resistance this leonine tyrant savaged its innocent prey in an unprovoked, un-necessary and seemingly unwarranted attack.

A Giant step for Lionkind

You get forced to postpone your safari three times then you catch the pesky virus yourself. Finally, you arrive and all that hassle is vapourised by Benja's reception committee above camp.  Thanks for your patience and stoicism team Eisenberger, you know it was the right decision when this happens and respect for the spookily intuitive guiding from Mr B.

Laura Dyer ... take a bow today. This is not her Spot debut, far from it, she and her husband Dan kept travelling to their favourite camps in Africa throughout the lonely days of 2020 and 21. We salute you both but you really have outdone yourselves this time.

Cheetah chatter
Cheetah chatter

This sleight but fleet-footed cat has many foes. They are well down on the predator food chain but blessed with the faculty no other has and to see one, nostrils flared and body stretched out, hurtling across the plains is a sight every safari fan should see at least once.

It appears that current guests (and there are plenty) into all four Kicheche Camps are all going back to nursery. Pick a camp, any camp and you will find their pre-school faunal classrooms bursting at the seams.   Cheetah kittens, lion cubs, elephant and rhino calves and even leopard cubs.

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.
