Campi Ya Kanzi Tented Camp
LOCATION: On a Maasai-owned Group Ranch, comprising 283,000 acres of private wilderness between Amboseli and Tsavo National Parks and bordering Chyulu Hills National Park.
SETTING: Stunningly beautiful area with spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro and incredibly animal diversity.
ACCOMMODATION: "Appropriate Luxury" ... just the right amount of luxury while still retaining a grounded connection with a true safari experience. Six Luxury Tented Cottages and two spacious Luxury Tented Suites, all en suite and with Italian linens, unique hand-painted art on each headboard, organic bath products, private verandahs, and views to Mt. Kilimanjaro.
HIGHLIGHTS: The Chyulu Hills is what Ernest Hemingway referred to as "The Green Hills of Africa". Campi Ya Kanzi is noted for its variety of activities: authentic cultural visits with Maasai families, quality wildlife viewing, hiking in the renowned Chyulu Hills, horseback riding (for experienced riders), flightseeing, and more. It's the perfect place to get out from behind the wheel and experience real Africa. A perfect getaway for couples, families, honeymooners, or multi-generational parties.
ACTIVITIES: Game drives (day and night), guided walking safaris, bush breakfasts or dinners, hiking in the Chyulu Hills, horseback riding, tracking, conservation and community out-reach programs, and cultural visits to Maasai Villages or schools. Optional day trips to Tsavo National Park, Amboseli National Park, a scenic flight close to Mt. Kilimanjaro, massage service, yoga retreats, fly camping, or a unique overnight excursion to Ithumba Camp in Tsavo East National Park, where the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust raises orphaned elephants and reintroduces them to the wild (we supply catering, guiding, etc.).
CHILD POLICY: We welcome children to Campi Ya Kanzi. Children aged 1 to 5 stay for free. The child rate applies to youths from ages 6 to 17. Age restrictions on activities may apply, specifically walking and horseback riding. Our Kid’s Program is hosted by the Maasai and is thoughtfully designed to teach and entertain younger ones.
PRIVATE VEHICLE: Available at an additional cost and based on availability.
GETTING THERE: Scheduled charter by light aircraft to the lodge airstrip. Campi ya Kanzi's own plane can be booked for seamless connections with any part of Kenya for a more "Out of Africa" flight safari than a regular transfer.
OPEN: Year round.
