Kampi Ya Kanzi lies within a 400 square mile private ranch in southern Kenya, in sight of Mt. Kilimanjaro on Maasai owned land. Campi ya Kanzi means "Camp of the Hidden Treasures" in Kiswahili; for the visitor, it means the ultimate in a luxury tented camp.
Tembo House is the heart of the camp. The clubhouse has a thatched roof and is beautifully constructed of local materials including lava. It's open to the outdoors, and from its terrace visitors have a spectacular view of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Tembo House has a large sitting room where guests can read books about Africa, or relax with a refreshing drink. Meals are also taken at Tembo House. Crystal glasses, fine table settings and candlelight dinners will be a high point of your Campi ya Kanzi experience. The cooks are specially trained in the preparation of fine Italian cuisine which are featured along with international and local dishes.
Campi ya Kanzi accommodates a maximum of fourteen guests in seven thatched guesthouses, well spaced apart from each other. One of these is named "The Hemingway Suite" for the famous author who wrote of the nearby Chyulu Hills in his "Green Hills of Africa." The guesthouses are constructed of stone, fabric and wood and they feature a full elegant bath with shower, bidet, basin, and flush toilet; brass-plumbing fixtures add an unexpected touch of elegance and comfort with hot and cold running water.
Each guesthouse has a wide veranda to provide superb views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and the Tsavo Hills. Each guesthouse has a dedicated Maasai attendant assigned to it. At night, Maasai guards patrol the camp to ensure guests complete safety.
