HOTEL DESCRIPTION: Campi ya Kanzi features Maasai-led walking safaris in Kenya. Experience the thrill of tracking game on foot with traditional Maasai! Located in Kenya's prime game area between Amboseli and Tsavo National Parks, the camp provides a luxury tented experience for your exclusive private safari. Our safaris are unique and tailor made to your desires and needs. Since there's no mass tourism and the ranch's environment is still pristine, the wildlife are unspoiled by human contact.
HOTEL ACCOMMODATION: Campi ya Kanzi accommodates a maximum of 14 guests in six thatched roof tented cottages and in the Hemingway and Simba suites. The first one is named after the famous author who wrote of the nearby Chyulu Hills in his book "Green Hills of Africa", the latter one is named after the Swahili name for Lion. Each tented cottage enjoys a different view, and accommodates one or two adults. An extra bed can be added for a child. They feature either twin beds or a king-size bed, made at the camp with local logs, with specially made linen imported from Italy. A table, two safari chairs, a colonial trunk, shelves and hangers for your clothes, and daily fresh flowers complete the interior décor. The suites feature king-size bed, a clothes room between the bedroom and the bathroom, with cabinets. Bathrooms have double sinks. All tented cottages are constructed of stones, fabric, and wood and they feature a full elegant bath with shower, bidet, basin, and flush toilet and electric light; brass plumbing fixtures add an unexpected touch of elegance and comfort with hot and cold running water. Each tented cottage has a wide veranda to provide superb views of either Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Tsavo Hills, and the Chyulu Hills. Our state-of-the-art solar system provides 220-volt electricity for your cottage (plugs and sockets are Italian). Campi ya Kanzi is a special retreat far removed from the hectic pace of the modern world. If necessary, however, you can reach your home or business with the camp's satellite phone. Cell phones - luckily! - do not work. With only eight tented cottages, there is ample distance from one to the other to guarantee every guest's privacy. Each tented cottage has a dedicated Maasai attendant assigned to it. At night, Maasai askari (night watchman) patrol the camp.
HOTEL FACILITIES: Tembo ("elephant") House is the heart of the camp. The clubhouse has a thatched roof and is beautifully constructed of local materials such as lava rocks and native timbers (collected in a National Forest where there is sustainable plantation). It is open to the outdoors, and from its terrace you'll have a spectacular view of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Tembo House has a large lounge where you can enjoy our books about Africa; relax with a refreshing drink after your safari; listen to classical music while watching a zebra drinking at the waterhole... You will also take your meals at Tembo House. Crystal glasses, fine table settings and candlelight dinners will be a highlight of your Campi ya Kanzi experience. Our cooks are specially trained in the preparation of fine Italian cuisine (home made fresh pasta, risotto, biscuits, bread, ice-cream...), which we feature along with International and local dishes. Fresh daily vegetables are supplied by our organic vegetable garden, as well as fresh milk from our organic dairy and fresh eggs from our chickens. Wines are from South Africa and also from the Italian vineyards of Antonella, specially bottled for Campi ya Kanzi.
Imagine a day that begins with the aroma of Kenyan coffee or tea brought to your tent by your personal Maasai attendant. Enjoy your coffee or tea and the view of Mt. Kilimanjaro on the veranda, and then head out for your morning walk or game drive.
After your safari, return to the camp for a breakfast that includes fresh local fruit such as mango and pineapple or enjoy a picnic breakfast in the middle of the savanna, complete of eggs and bacon cooked on a bush fire.
Following breakfast, you can enjoy an escorted safari on foot, or just relax at the camp. At lunchtime, we can organize a grand picnic for you, featuring fresh vegetables from our garden, or you can dine at Tembo House and then take an afternoon siesta.
At other safari camps, guests frequently find themselves tied to an inflexible, predetermined safari schedule. Not so at Campi Ya Kanzi: our guests really appreciate that they can work directly with their professional guide to design each day's safari and activities.
All will depend on your desires, time of the year (game moves within the reserve and certain safaris are better in certain time of the year) and length of your stay.
It will be up to you to decide what you will like most to do.

Game drives in open Land Rover
