Bateleur Camp, Kichwa Tembo
Kichwa Tembo is situated along the Sabaringo River, which spills down the Oloololo escarpment and into the Mara River. The riverine forest provides refuge for unique bird and mammal species. Colourful butterflies can be seen darting through the dappled forest shade.
Kichwa Tembo boasts 2 camps: Bateleur Camp and its sister camp, Masai Mara Tented Camp, are located where the forest meets the sweeping plains in the path of the awe-inspiring great migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra.
Bateleur Camp is an intimate 9 tented camp complete with private butler service.
Nestled deep in a belt of dense riverine forest, each tent is secluded in a leafy enclave carved out of lush green vegetation and providing sweeping views over the Masai Mara.
Twice daily game drives explore the Masai Mara in an open 4x4 safari vehicle in early morning and late afternoon or early evening. During the migration full day game drives afford you the thrilling experience of a picnic lunch among the massed herds.
Interpretive bush walks are conducted either within the camp grounds, along the Oloololo escarpment or on the lush banks of the Mara River.
Lectures on Masai culture are also offered, and at an additional cost there are Masai community visits and hot air ballooning.
A swimming pool with lovely views across the Mara offers you respite from the heat of the day.
