The tour opens after you have been met at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and transferred to nearby Wilson Airport, the domestic hub. Here you board a flight to Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve and Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp, a long-time favourite of safari travellers. Complete with sweeping savannah views and offering elegant canvas-and-timber suites, Kichwa Tembo enjoys a private concession setting which means you have the advantage of exclusive game sightings as well as activities not permitted in the main reserve such as spot-lit night drives. There is also the option of going hot-air ballooning and viewing the Masai Mara from a bird-eye perspective.
You have two full days here, exploring a game-rich environment by 4X4 and also on foot if you would like, the best way to discover the smaller details with your expert guide. Located on the seasonal Migration path, Kichwa Tembo is especially rewarding between August and November when the great wildebeest herds are in the area. Top sightings include the river crossings when the wildebeest have to navigate their way past giant crocodiles lying in wait in the water. Such is the abundance of wildlife here that visitors can expect great game viewing at any time of year.
