The moment we stepped into Kichwa Tembo, we immediately fell in love with it. Everything is perfect in this hotel. Excellent services, great food, beautiful swimming pool and nice resting area. Make sure you get one of the eight Superior View Tents, which locates on the front row with unblocked view over the savannah. Interestingly, a female wart hog had a group of baby wart hogs beneath the viewing deck of our tent. We ended up having to change to another tent. What a unique experience to have in Africa! The only thing you need to consider before you make the reservation is location. Kichwa is 5-10 minutes drive outside the north gate of Masa Mara National Reserve. If you look at the map, you will find the location to be near the top left concern of Masa Mara. Bear in mind that Masa Mara is 1600 square kilometers in size. We had to drive long distance to other parts of the park, e.g. east side of Mara River. If you are coming with the expectation to see wildebeests crossing Mara River, you may want to stay at somewhere closers to the frequent crossing points. I heard Mara Serena has the best location to see river crossing. But, of course, you will never get the unique experience and great services you can have in Kichwa Tembo.
