Campi ya Kanzi
Campi ya Kanzi first opened in 1998 as a luxury home stay operated by an Italian couple who were deeply committed to the environment and their local Maasai community. It has since evolved into an expansive, 16-bed tented camp set on the hillsides around the family's former home, which today forms the main dining and lounge area.
Our view of Campi ya Kanzi
Overall, we think this is one of the most impressive camps in Kenya for its serious commitment to the Maasai community of Kuku Group Ranch and as a model of sustainability in a challenging environment. Although we had some relatively minor issues around the food and tents, such quibbles fade into the background in relation to the contacts we experienced with the community and our visit to the Chyulu cloud forest. Together, these made Campi ya Kanzi one of our most unforgettable stays of recent years.
Campi ya Kanzi's success is a result of the close ties between the lodge and the Maasai.
