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: 6 Luxury Tented Cottages* raised above ground on wooden platforms, all with en-suite bathrooms and an indoor and outdoor shower.
* Separately, there is also 14 Quadruple Tents, each with en-suite bathroom in the Chyulu Wilderness Camp. These rooms are primarily used by the prestigious Swiss Institut Le Rosey for educational programs, but may be suited to larger families and groups. The 6 Chyulu Club Luxury Tents and Wilderness Camp group accommodation will never be booked at the same time (i.e. availability for the 6 Luxury Tents are blocked when the group accommodation is in use).
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, tracking, conservation and community outreach programs, and cultural visits to Maasai Villages or schools. Chyulu Club is in an excellent location for day trips to Tsavo National Park and for visits to the MWCT Research Center. Scenic flights (with champagne breakfast) and visits to Amboseli National Park can be arranged at additional cost.
CHILD POLICY: We welcome children to Chyulu Club. 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: Additional cost.
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. Larger parties are transferred in a larger plane.
OPEN: Year round.
