Perched in the Chyulu Hills of Southern Kenya looking towards mighty Mt. Kilimanjaro, the award-winning Campi ya Kanzi is the only safari camp built on a Maasai-owned reserve.
Accommodations consist of six luxury tented cottages and two luxury tented suites. Each thatch-roofed room sits above the ground on a wooden platform and includes comfy beds dressed in the finest Italian linens. The spacious en suite bathrooms feature eco-friendly flush toilets, dual vanities, a shower, and a bidet. The two luxury suites are named the Hemingway and the Simba due to spectacular views from the private veranda across the hills to Mt. Kilimanjaro. Great for families or groups, the separate Kanzi House has three doubles rooms and one twin and comes with a private dining area catered to by its own chefs and waiters as well as its own pool, Jacuzzi, and private safari vehicle.
The camp sits in the 283,000-acre private Maasai owned Kuku Group Ranch in the Chyulu Hills made famous by author Ernest Hemingway as the “Green Hills of Africa” and looks out on the iconic heights of Mt. Kilimanjaro. In fact, the camp is located only thirty miles from Mt. Kilimanjaro. The camp’s name in Swahili translates to “Camp of Hidden Treasures which is an apt moniker for a lodge rich in both stunning views and plenty of big game including lions, elephants, buffalo, giraffes, and antelopes. A community project, the camp was built and now run by both the local Maasai community and the Belpietro family for an authentic Maasai experience that benefits the local community.
