This was my fifth visit and still amazing! It's great to return here and to feel that you are back amongst family - Darren and Emma and little Frankie make you so welcome. There were 9 of us on the trip and we stayed for a record 9 nights this time! The camp feels familiar, but now with the addition...

Kicheche Bush Camp was definitely the highlight of our trip to the Mara. It came highly recommended to us by our friend and neighbour, Greg du Toit (BBC's World Wildlife Photographer of the Year). After 5 minutes at the camp, it felt like we were visiting old friends. Darren and Emma’s hospitality and “down-to-earthness” made it feel like we’d know...

Another fabulous week at KBC on a photographic safari. Amazing wildlife, great photography and so rewarding to 'catch up' with some of the characters like Fig :-) However, none of that is possible without the amazing team...our guides were James, Charles and Nelson, who once again displayed their amazing abilities at finding wildlife and correctly predicting its behaviour. The camp...

Probably our favourite of the 4 Kicheche camps due to its beautiful location. Darren and Emma were very welcoming and attentive to all our needs. We were lucky to have the wonderful Patrick as our guide again and he once again managed to find many superb sightings of every type of wildlife we wanted to see. We cannot praise enough...

Well, technically it's camping, but think well appointed marquee rather than tent. It's a superb experience from all angles, the location, accommodation, food and drink, the attention to detail. Darren and Emma warrant much applause. Of course the animals are the stars of the show, but with Kicheche it's really it's more of an ensemble cast, it couldn't happen, in...

Had friends (father & son) visiting from UK but they were only in Kenya for seven nights. Had chosen to go back to Kicheche Bush Camp because the last time we were here we had possibly the best weekend of game watching and action that one could ask for. I think the Conservancy is really really well run and delivers...

This was the best thing myself & my husband have ever done. The whole experience was amazing from the fly in safari which I would recommend as the drive is long, to the staff and camp itself which was very welcoming I cant put it into words how it made us feel. I put allot of research into where to...

For me, Bush Camp is perfect. It is run brilliantly by Darren and Emma - who create a fabulously relaxed atmosphere where you feel right at home - whilst making sure that everything you want is provided for. The guiding is excellent (I've so far been guided by James, Patrick, Charles and Nelson) - all the guides have an expert...

This was the 3rd camp we visited on our trip to Kenya and we stayed here 4 nights. This was our 4 trip to Africa, and this camp is one of the best we have ever stayed at. The managers, Emma and Darren, were fabulous and their personalities and management style certainly help push this camp to the top of...
