Take Me There – Winner

Peter Ericksen (and his wife who is a major subject of this remarkable photo) are the winners of the 'Take me there' competition.  They win sole use of one of our new photographic vehicles for seven days on the next safari they book.  

Stars & Stripes

Thank you State Department for being infected with the 'sensible' variant and encouraging further travel to Kenya. No amendments, no nonsense, just a simple constitution: you have been vaccinated twice, you can travel. Oh and by the way the US has classified Kenya's status level as 'safer' than the UK and Europe too...

Swiss Watch

So those perpetual trouble-makers the Swiss have created more nonsense by telling their citizens that they can actually travel with just a PCR test. How dare they treat their people as grown ups, Swiss barmy lives (I worked hard on that one) clearly matter little.

Getting the needle

The inbox is still brimming with 'take me theres' and indeed your heartfelt messages of frustration and support which mean a great deal to us. Thank you.

Smart Move

They keep filling the inbox. We will endeavour to post on social media but please be patient. If there are a collection of very similar images we will just choose the best one, but keep them coming ... and THANK YOU. Anyway, let me introduce you to seasoned alumni Peter Smart. The Kicheche logos should give you an idea of his vintage, he has led over fifty (50) photographic safaris into Mara Camp - both venues.

Take Me There – take II

As we have been inundated with some wonderful 'takeaways', we will use every possible platform to feature them (well, most of them).

Take Me There

"The granite above Kicheche Mara Camp is my favourite place on earth. I can see for miles, there are animals aplenty and most importantly it means I am 'home'. " D.T. Shropshire, UK Currently we are stalled at a red light. Thank you for the fertile acres of frustrated prose you have sent to us supporting Kicheche and the Conservancies, particularly pertinent today on Earth Day. The pain we feel is clearly reciprocated. Right now a distraction is called for judging by your yearning messages.

Sleepy Hollow

You know the mark of anyone when they go above and beyond. Waaaaay beyond. Jimmy Tinka and David Nchoe are off duty, one even at home on leave. Yesterday afternoon Jimmy picked up a sketchy text: something about a Tamarind tree and leopards. The plural was not wasted on him.

Crown Caught

When Valley Camp royalty like Bernard Soit exclaim they have never seen a particular eagle before, you know you are talking twitching nobility.

Dyer need for a safari

Meet Laura Dyer, Kicheche has become her Hotel California ... she 'can try to check out any time she likes but she can never leave'. Laura extended her safari three times, finally returning home after five weeks. Thank you Laura, these are her heartfelt lyrics:
