We spent 10 nights in the 3 Kicheche camps located in the Masai Mara Conservancies, and all were superb. Staying at Valley Camp at the end proved to be the icing on the cake. It is slightly more luxurious than the other 2 (it has hot water "on tap" in the showers rather than the bucket options) and the tents are probably a step up as well. What made our stay so memorable was the game viewing, especially the night drives (Aardwolf, Aardvark and Zorilla all seen within 30 minutes on one evening). Our guide Benjamin was superb (as are all Kicheche guides) and made every effort to show us the wildlife we wanted to see. The nature walk was also very informative, and gives a different perspective on the land.
As usual with Kicheche the food was of an incredibly high standard, and the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. The camp hosts are Andy and Marietta, who were both absolutely first class, and we feel that they have something very special at Valley Camp. If you decide to go to Kenya then you should stay with Kicheche, and the perfect way to round off any trip would be a few days at Valley Camp.
We will certainly be returning.
