You will then be met by the camp hosts and given a briefing before settling into your tent and freshening up before lunch. Afterwards, relax and absorb the surroundings before setting off on an afternoon game drive in the conservancy till sunset. You may come across giraffe nibbling on the highest leaves or elephant stripping bark from the tastiest trees.

Experience the wildlife

Rise early with tea or coffee brought to your tent and set off far as the sun rises for a wilderness awakening game drive. The verdant plains host a fabulous array of plains game such as gazelles, impala, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest and eland. Never far away are predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena which our guides are finely tuned to finding. Enjoy a picnic breakfast in the most magnificent outdoor setting on the plains before winding your way back to camp. After a leisurely al-fresco lunch back at camp, relax, read, watch the resident birdlife or enjoy a siesta in your tent. Afternoon tea is followed by game driving in another area of the conservancy where you may see jackals roaming, warthog bathing or impala jousting. Sundowner drinks are served in a
picturesque spot as you watch the sun sink below the horizon. Return to camp to exchange stories around the campfire with the other guests before your mouth watering three course evening meal. Overnight at Kicheche Mara Camp with your meals and drinks again included.
