The Boma Nairobi Hotel

The Boma Nairobi Hotel has 148 luxury deluxe guest rooms, restaurants, spa and health club, and conference facilities that will cater for your needs.

Kicheche Mara Camp

Kicheche Mara Camp is a seasonal bush camp in the traditional style and accommodates a maximum of sixteen guests in eight comfortable twin / double bedded tents. Each tent has en-suite bathroom facilities, consisting of a bucket shower (a traditional shower rose fed from a tank), a flush loo, and vanity.

The tented camp is set up in a stunning valley south of Aitong. Hot water for the bucket showers is available on call. The tents are furnished with proper beds with linen, table, and chairs (on the veranda). Kicheche also has a large tented lounge (the Nyati tent) with a selection of reference books and easy chairs, the perfect spot to relax during the heat of the day.

On this safari, besides daily game drives, you will also constantly receive the necessary tips, tuition, and advice on camera settings in order to get the very best out of your photographic holiday. Every second day, each photographer’s pictures will be displayed on a computer, enabling a constructive critique to ensure that you are photographing to the very best of your ability.
