As &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp in the Masai Mara re-opens following a complete rebuild and design transformation, luxury experiential travel company &Beyond reveals its hot list of its African and Indian tented camps.

This is glamping at its best where guests can fall asleep in sheer comfort, close to the stars and surrounded by nature.

&Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp sits in a private wildlife concession on the western border of the Masai Mara National Reserve, where some of the most spectacular scenes in Out of Africa were filmed. Between now and October, guests have a strong chance of witnessing the dramatic Mara River crossings during the annual Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra.

The complete rebuild of this simple yet elegant tented camp celebrates the panoramic views of the game-filled Mara plains. The 12 luxury tents and 28 superior tents all overlook the open grasslands or the shady forest surrounding the Sabaringo River and the rim-flow swimming pool looks out onto vast open vistas. With a strong emphasis on privacy, the new camp layout maximises the uninterrupted views, ensuring that each tent enjoys its own private Mara experience. The brand new guest areas have also been constructed with the camp’s Mara views as a focus.


unnamedThe mobile camps of &Beyond Serengeti Under Canvas offers guests the opportunity to see wildlife from different vantage points and wake to the sounds of animals on the move. The camps’ locations are carefully planned to anticipate the movement of the Great Migration across the Serengeti. Enjoying the full tranquillity of the African night, guests can watch the sunset and admire the dramatic night sky during dinner.

The ultimate in luxury camping, the camp exudes elegant charm and embodies old-world glamour, complete with a private butler service, chandeliers, silverware and cut glass crystal.

Sleeping under canvas is one of the best ways to enjoy the African bush. Set within the game-rich Chobe National Park, which is home to some of the largest elephant herds on the African continent,&Beyond Chobe Under Canvas moves to a different private campsite every five to six days. Each time it is carefully postioned as close as possible to the resident game. &Beyond Chobe Under Canvas has spacious tents with ensuite bathrooms, hot bucket showers and superb camp cuisine. This is a place where guests can connect with the culture, taste local food and explore the area on game drives and private boat cruises on the Chobe River. It is as experiential as it gets.

&Beyond Xaranna Okavango Delta Camp is an intimate camp with only nine tents, providing an exclusive retreat among a network of secluded islands in the Delta. In high water season, the camp is only accessible by boat, but provides a brilliant opportunity to explore the intricate waterways while hippo spotting. This idyllic camp is surrounded by beautiful reed beds and lush plant life. All tents have their own fully-sized private pool with spectacular views over the channels.


There is something inherently romantic about sleeping under the stars, particularly in the African bush. &Beyond Ngala Tented Camp’s nine elegant and sophisticated tents overlook the seasonal Timbavati River on the edge of the Kruger National Park and are ideal for couples and honeymooners.Within the 35 000 acre &Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve, Ngala Tented Camp offers exceptional game viewing, with the lodge’s swimming pool and sundeck often frequented by elephant and buffalo.

India’s Kanha National Park, the inspiration for Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book, is home to &Beyond Banjaar Tola Tented Camp. The camp is spread along the banks of the Banjaar River, overlooking the jungle. Contemporary meets traditional in this warm retreat, which sits on the border of one of India’s largest and most untouched tiger reserves. Each of the 18 suites boasts a fusion of light wood panelling, woven elements and brass sculptures, all set under traditional canvas. Guests enjoy floating private verandas, lantern-lit dinners and a first-class butler service, all combined with the chance of spotting tigers and the rare hard water barasingha (swamp deer).
