Campi ya Kanzi has two goals: treat you to the most memorable vacation of your life, while helping the Maasai preserve their wildlife and cultural heritages. So it is a community eco-lodge, widely recognized as one of the most unique and inspiring safari experiences in Africa and a community situated at the foot of the legendary Chyulu Hills, Hemingway’s Green Hills of Africa. The diversity of the landscape, and consequently of the wildlife, is tremendous. You can spend a week here, enjoying and discovering something different everyday, combining traditional game drives with unforgettable game walks, while being deeply immersed in the Maasai culture.
In the words of Edward Norton, the President of Maasai Wilderness Conservation Fund: “The contribution that Campi ya Kanzi makes to Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust is a shining example of the way the romance and adventure of tourism in the last, best wild places can actually help preserve those places for the future.
Built in partnership with the Maasai community of the 280,000-acre Kuku Group Ranch, Campi ya Kanzi has a unique commitment to community development and environmental sustainability: we are leaders in real ecotourism, engaging the local Maasai in benefiting from wilderness with thriving wildlife.
Offering an incomparable combination of 5-star luxury, first class wilderness adventure, amazing wildlife, and authentic immersion in Maasai culture. This is truly the ultimate African safari. You may choose between two types of accommodation: the classic safari under canvas -at Campi ya Kanzi – or the privacy of a villa in the bush – Kanzi House.
Campi ya Kanzi accommodates a maximum of 16 guests in six thatched roof luxury tented cottages and in the Hemingway and Simba suites. The tented cottages and the suites are conveniently located, with ample distance from one to the other, to guarantee every guest’s privacy. Each accommodation has a dedicated Maasai attendant.
