Campi ya Kanzi is nestled in the beautiful Chyulu Hills, Ernest Hemingway’s green hills of Africa. An eco-friendly lodge set in 400 square miles of Maasai community owned land and facing the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro.
Six guest tented cottages are centered around Tembo House, the home of your Kenyan-Italian family hosts Luca and Antonella. Raising three children on the land they have created a utopia from modern day life and a fine example of sustainable, organic living. Fresh vegetables are supplied daily from a small biodynamic vegetable garden and the wine is imported from Antonella’s vineyard in Italy.
Campi ya Kanzi is a wilderness destination and guests cannot avoid a profound cultural experience. One can see amazing wildlife there, including some fantastic rare species such as wild dog, oryx, gerenuk and cheetah. But moreover guests can walk in the hills, through the unique cloud forest, and into hidden enormous caves, as well as horseback ride.
