&Beyond has recently upgraded the twelve classic tents at its prestigious &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp, situated on a private concession in the Masai 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 Masai Mara views. The recent changes to the classic tent type increased their size and lightened their interiors.
Upgraded classic tent type
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.
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 m (1 600 ft) 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 (800 hectare) private concession bordering the Masai 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 classical tents a world-class safari option. The reasonable rates and ease of use by groups are the final touches in creating a reasonably priced option yet exclusive choice.
