Campi ya Kanzi: picture gallery


Campi ya Kanzi's success is a result of the close ties between the lodge and the Maasai.
Acccess to the camp is up a volcanic cinder track, past the towering "Lion King Rock".
The central lounge and dining area is comfortable and welcoming…
…with inviting areas to relax…
…and a splendid deck area…
…that stretches the length of the main buildings.
You can have breakfast out here, and there's a firepit…
…that makes a perfect place for pre-dinner drinks, or a nightcap.
The back-of-house visit, includes a tour of the camp's extraordinary water storage.
From the central part of the camp, you walk to your tent along cinder paths.
The tents are very well-spaced to the south of the main buildings…
…and each one has a thatched roof and solid bathroom at the rear.
The decks at the front…
…look out onto a panorama of savannah…
…which effectively wraps around each tent.
The tents are atttractively furnished…
…with solid four-posters…
…and earthy colours.
The plumbed-in bathrooms at the back are an interesting mix of styles…
with stone floors.
Locally sourced toiletries are provided in chunky, glass flasks.
The activities at Campi ya Kanzi are at the heart of the experience here.
Bush walks with experienced Maasai guides and trackers…
…often end with sundowners…
…and a drive back to camp with one of the vehicles.
Heading up behind the camp into the cloud forest at the peaks of the Chyulu hills…
…takes you through marvellous birdwatching country…
…and into superb grasslands…
…before entering the forest itself.
Here you'll learn about medicinal plants…
…and possibly meet honey- and qat-collectors.
It's a ravishingly beautiful environment…
…and one the Campi ya Kanzi guides know well.
Other acitivities at Campi ya Kanzi include visits to a labyrinth of caves…
…and leaving the hills to visit the bulk of the local Maasai community…
…who live around Il-Tilal. This is their local primary school, supported by the Trust.
Home life is still largely traditional…
…and customs of deference to elders are widely respected…
…though as everywhere, boys like to show off their poses.
Above it all, Kilimanjaro is a permanent presence, if not always easy to see!
