Kichwa Tembo Safari Camp

On the secluded western border of the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya among the tall grassy plains of the Serengeti lies Kichwa Tembo, a tented luxury safari camp. Kichwa Tembo's relationship to the land is unique - it is the only camp on Masai Mara grounds, thanks to an exclusive partnership with its Masai landlords. Unlike the eastern side of the Masai Mara, usually overrun by travelers on package tours and in crowded jeeps, the company keeps its comfortable open-viewing jeep excursions capped at six people and offers lectures by Masai naturalists. It is also the only company allowed to lead safaris at night. The Great Migration passes right through Kichwa's reserve every June through August, and guests can watch the incredible drama of life and death among 2 million animals unfold without leaving the campgrounds - or for that matter, the swimming pool. Guests rave about the lantern-lit dinners in the bush that feature fresh pan-African cuisine and salad ingredients from the camp's shamba (vegetable garden). 2009 Smart Luxury Award winner
