Following an extensive renovation in 2014, this 40-tent safari camp in Kenya’s game-rich Masai Mara region now features a fresh, modern design in its common areas and riverside luxury tents, accented by local artwork and materials. Thanks to its location in a private concession area overlooking the Sabaringo river and Oloololo escarpment (plateau), the camp is able to take guests on traditional game drives in the national park, as well as on night drives, bush walks and other unique experiences on the private locale. Accommodations are perfectly positioned for excellent views of the large herds during migration season. We also love that, compared to most safari camps of this level, Kichwa’s base rates are relatively lower, so you can add on upgrades like hot air balloon rides, bush meals, sundowners and more (room rates start at about $400 per person and are all inclusive; andbeyond.com).
