The only eco-tourism camp in the entire Mathew’s Mountain Range and surrounding forest, Kitich Camp offers a rare forest wildlife experience.
Kitich Camp hosts only twelve guests at a time in six spacious safari tents. Three of the room have double beds while the other three rooms have twin beds. Each tent has a main bedroom and an en suite stone bathroom with a traditional al fresco outdoor shower. The tents also enjoy solar power, a comfortable seating area, and fine carpets. A wide veranda provides views of the lush gorge of the Ngeng River.
The camp is located in a hidden river glade of a remote valley fringed by dense, dewy forest on the upper slopes of the Mathews Mountains, also known as the Lenkiyio Hills. The forest of the Mathews Mountains covers about 222,000 acres, and the astounding peaks rise 6,000 feet above the surrounding lowlands. To help preserve this pristine forest in Kenya’s Northern Frontier District, Kitich Camp works closely with the Namunyak Wildlife Community Conservancy. Over 200 bird species live in the forest including the Hartlaub’s turaco. There are even fifteen different forest butterfly species in the area.
