&Beyond has recently upgraded the twelve classic tents at its prestigious &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp, situated on a private concession in Kenya’s Maasai Mara.
&Beyond Kichwa Tembo offers a variety of accommodation types, from the traditional classic tents in the shade of the forest to spacious superior tents with magnificent Maasai Mara views. The recent changes to the classic tent type increased their size and lightened their interiors.
Forming the entry level offering in the camp’s three tiers of accommodation types, the twelve classic tents now boast oversized four-poster beds, as well as brand-new finishes that include his and hers basins, a lighter colour scheme and a comfortable outdoor seating area. The tents have also been extended to make them approximately 30% bigger in size. Together with the excellent camp facilities available to all accommodation types and Kichwa Tembo’s perfect setting in a remote corner of the world-renowned nature reserve, this makes the classic tents an exceptional value offering.
Rates are priced from US$330 per person per night in low season up to US$450.
Set in a secluded part of the camp along the forested banks of the Saparingo River, the classic tents offer increased privacy, making them ideal for groups of travellers, including incentive groups and others.
All accommodation types use the same expansive guest areas, with a double-storey bar and lounge area set within 500 metres of the classic tents and closer to the superior tents. Guests staying in the classic tents also benefit from the same professionally trained guides and comfortable vehicles as guests in the superior tents.
Exclusive Masai Mara location
Located in a 2,000-acre private concession bordering the Maasai Mara, &Beyond Kichwa Tembo combines the thriving wildlife population of Kenya’s most famous national park with the flexibility of a private game reserve. Easy access to Mara provides exceptional sightings of rich wildlife, including the river crossing of the famous Great Migration, while night drives, bush walks and bush dining can be enjoyed in the private concession. Hot air ballooning is also available within a five-minute ride of the camp.
The spectacular setting in a remote corner of the Mara frequented by relatively few visitors, as well as the exceptional facilities offered at &Beyond Kichwa Tembo combine to make the classic tents a world-class safari option. The reasonable rates and ease of use by groups are the final touches in creating a reasonably priced, yet exclusive choice.
Other &Beyond options in the Maasai Mara
In addition to the classic tents, &Beyond Kichwa Tembo also offers Superior and Superior View tent types. The eight Superior View tents offer panoramic views of the Maasai Mara, while the other Superior options either provide partial views or glimpses of the Mara through the forest canopy. All the Superior options feature beautiful and simple Maasai-inspired interiors, as well as private verandahs with comfortable day beds. Spacious bathrooms include double vanities and generous showers. There are three family units, which consist of two tents linked by an enclosed walkway.
