Cave Dinner

A unique and magical cave experience...

Dining below the Earth’s surface in a lava tube lined with flaming torches, dimly lit lanterns, and local Maasai? Guests at Campi ya Kanzi have the opportunity to do just that!

Start your evening with a leisurely and scenic walk for approximately 40 minutes from Campi ya Kanzi. Your guide will lead you through the vast beautiful plains of the Chyulu an excellent time for bird watching, viewing fresh lion paw prints, and learning about the grazing practices of the Maasai in the area. As you approach the cave enjoy a surprise Maasai traditional dance by with a backdrop of the sunset and the hills.

It is not an easy venture to truly capture the essence of the warm and calming energy of the cave. The lighting from the lanterns and the candles combined with the darkness of the cave contribute to a relaxing and spiritual inner and out-of-body experience. One that cannot simply be captured through an image.

Horse-back Riding

Imagine Mount Kilimanjaro wrapped in a soft, purple light with the snow on top reflecting the first sun of the morning. Listen to Africa as she wakes up at dawn. Birds are singing, zebras are snorting, and the wind is whistling through the acacias.

You are in the middle of it all, riding a horse through a herd of hartebeest. This magical experience will remain with you forever.

After your ride, raise a toast to the great greatdoors as you sip champagne at a peaceful bush breakfast.

Kilimanjaro Flight

Should you wish to fly over the Snows of Kilimanjaro or The Green Hills of Africa (the Chyulu Hills) or over the magnificent wilderness of Tsavo West and/or Amboseli National Parks, in search of elephants, our commercial pilot will be delighted to assist.

Flying next to the highest mountain of Africa is amazing: you will see the snowy peaks, the forests, the valleys of the old lava flows.

At sunrise, and with a pinkish dawn embracing the Mountain, we will fly next to Mawenzi – the second highest peak, then toward Kibo, Kilimanjaro’s highest peak We will see the Shira Plateau, and in distance Mt. Meru.

You will feel like the first pilots experiencing pioneering flying over Africa. Being so close to Kilimanjaro is fascinating.
We remain in the Kenyan airspace and we fly just 5 miles from the peak: very impressive!

We will come back toward the Chyulu Hills, flying low level in search of the elephants, which we see most of the time.
After landing, a table will be waiting for you in the savanna, with a fabulous vista of the mountain where you just flew over.

A champagne breakfast, in the savanna, with eggs and bacon cooked on a bush fire… Do not miss the experience of a life time!
Flying early morning is extremely comfortable; the air is not moving and you will have an incredibly smooth flight.

Walking / Hiking Safaris

With us you can do more than just stretch your legs, you can walk for days. Stroll down through the foothills to the granite-topped outcroppings at the edge of the savannah and climb up for a view of the Savannah.
