Lenchada Tourist Camp

Lenchada Tourist Camp
is a budget safari camp just outside the gates of the Masai Mara Game reserve, regarded as one of the wildlife jewels in Kenya. The camp is built with all the comforts of home, including solar-heated showers, bed with pillows, sheets, blankets and mosquito nets. Additionally, as a backup, a standby generator that supplies lights and refrigeration for the dining area allows cellphones and digital cameras to be recharged. Our Camp is surrounded by a natural environment, waking up to bird twittering and roaring of lions, hyena’s monkeys drama in the bush around. Our camp charms guests with its warm welcome and rests along a stream valley overlooking picturesque hills and rolling plains of Oloolaimutia in Mara National Game Reserve.

The thrill of leaving camp at dawn on a game drive in search of big cats is only equaled by the constant stimulation of your senses with the sights, smells and sounds of the Masai Mara. The scent of rain begins to draw the Wildebeest Migration from The Serengeti throughout July, and soon the planet’s greatest animal migration is underway. The sight of the migration is staggering - an endless grey river of wildebeest mottled with black and white as zebras join the throng that stretches from one horizon to the other.

As the morning sun’s golden glow tinges the horizon, rise above the world on an enthralling Hot Air Balloon Ride across untamed vistas and enjoy a birds eye view of nature unfolding. A visit to an authentic Masai manyatta is an exciting cultural experience and provides a personal insight into their ancient traditions. We tailor design short walks across the conservancy plains and, for the intrepid explorer, multiple days of hiking in the Loita Hills featuring 200kms of forests, breathtaking waterfalls and spectacular birdlife.

The Masai Mara is an ideal location for your wedding, honeymoon or renewing your marriage vows. Your ceremony will be one of your greatest occasions and we will ensure that you celebrate in style.

Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration
The Great Wildebeest Migration, is one of the “Seven New Wonders of the World”.

No where in the world is there a movement of animals as immense as the wildebeest migration, over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during July through to October.

The migration has to cross the Mara River in the Maasai Mara where crocodiles will prey on them. This is one of the highlights as the animals try and cross the Mara River alive.

In the Maasai Mara they will be hunted, stalked, and run down by the larger carnivores.

The Crossing
From the western Serengeti the herds head north, following the rains (or their effects) into Kenya and the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. On their trek the wildebeests’ path is cut several times by rivers: in the Serengeti by the Mbalangeti and the Grumeti, and in Kenya by the Mara. For most of the year these rivers are relatively placid, but they can become violent torrents in response to rainfall in their catchments areas, and then they present major obstacles to the progress of the wildebeest.
