A camp woven into the fabric of the Chyulus in Kenya

Campi ya Kanzi is an award-winning boutique ecolodge in the Chyulu Hills of southern Kenya, in Ernest Hemingway’s “Green Hills of Africa”. This camp is the only Kenya luxury safari lodge on a Maasai-owned reserve spanning 283,000 acres of pristine wilderness. The Hills  volcanic summits are covered in a rich green cloud forest,  home to a completely different array of trees, flowers, insects, birds and mammals. This special Maasai land supports amazing wildlife, with an immense biodiversity, including zebra, giraffe, antelopes and apex predators like lions and leopards for game viewing.

The best from a Kenya holiday

We have fond memories of our time in “The Green Hills of Africa” and getting to know, however briefly, Antonella, Claudia, yourself and all at Campi ya Kanzi. We also loved the intimate contact with the Maasai they were so welcoming when we visited, we felt like we were guests not tourists. We cannot express how much we fell in love with Africa in general. We felt like we had come home. Judy and I felt just like Hemingway when he quoted “I am homesick already and I have not even left Africa yet.” We felt the same way.. will continue to keep our time at “Campi” close to our hearts. Asanteni sana to you all .

Campi ya Kanzi is widely recognised as one of the most inspiring and eco-friendly 5 star luxury safari experiences in Africa. All electricity and hot water are provided through our solar power system, we collect all of our water from the rains and recycle the used water in a pond for the wildlife. To make sure every guest has a neutral carbon footprint during their stay, we offset their emissions towards the UN REDD+ Chyulu Hill Carbon Project.

Situated at the foot of the legendary Chyulu Hills, this luxury safari camp offers an incomparable combination of 5 star luxury – rustic comfort, first class wilderness adventure, amazing wildlife, and authentic immersion in Maasai culture.

We offer what we like to call ‘appropriate luxury’, which to us is less about infinity & plunge pools and Wi-Fi in your tent, and more about living a real safari experience in the Maasai wilderness, of 400 square miles exclusively for our guests!

Your 5 star luxury African Safari includes beautiful accommodation in your choice of suites, tented cottages or private villa. Each room is decorated with a delicate touch of African themed, rustic elegance.

Your personal Maasai tracker and guide will take you through an endless array of beautiful landscapes and sundowner spots that will surely leave you breathless.

The camp is limited to 16 guests at a time, to ensure that you always feel like you are exploring the wilderness exclusively.

This is truly the ultimate African safari holiday, a thrilling outdoor adventure of memorable wildlife encounters and authentic connection to the Maasai people. Our Kenyan luxury safari lodge has been built in partnership with the Maasai community of the 283,000-acre Kuku Group Ranch. Campi ya Kanzi has a unique commitment to community development and environmental sustainability: we are leaders in real ecotourism. Our Kenya luxury safari packages ensures that your stay positively impacts the ecosystem, protects wildlife and benefits the livelihoods of the local Maasai community. Through our partnership with The Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (a Kenyan NGO we founded in 2000) we are able to direct a conservation fee ($116) charged per guest/night towards their programs in Conservation, Education and Health.

These benefits include: employment of Rangers that protect and patrol the ecosystem from illegal activities, employment of young Maasai Warriors to protect the lion population and mitigate human-wildlife conflicts, support 5 health facilities to service nearly 19,000 community members with healthcare and support 26 schools, 62 teachers and over 8800 students!

In front of Kilimanjaro, with a Maasai warrior taking you on safari, among elephants and lions, you will experience your dream luxury African safari adventure.
