Campi Ya Kanzi is a stunning lodge in the Chyulu Hills. We felt welcomed and our every need met in this wonderful family run lodge. Luca and Antoniella Belpietro are deeply passionate about their surroundings and the local people. The Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust is the most genuine, well run Trust concentrating its efforts not just on Conservation, but Education... More

To celebrate a 75 th birthday we spent some days in Campi ya Kanzi. We found fantastic people and Luca and Donatella do a fantastic work and we hope they will find more success in the future in their huge task. The nature is gorgeous and breathtaking and a beautiful flight in the front of the Kilimanjaro gives even an... More

First time on the southern side of the Chyulus. Totally unspoilt. Not a phone mast or road in sight! And at Campi ya Kanzi, a chance to interact with the Maasai... and enjoy breathtaking views of Kili. A step back in time not to be missed.

Waking up at dawn to see the sun shining on Mount Kilimanjaro was breathtaking. Now add on the zebras, hyenas, Cape buffaloes, wart hogs, and jackals that drank from the water hole. Let's not forget the gorgeous and exotic birds that came to visit. During the day our excellent guides took us to find animals in the wild, take hikes,... More

Our family truly enjoyed our five night stay at this camp. I will skip the usual reviews of food, lodging and activities as all were outstanding. Perhaps because this was our first time in Kenya, but more likely due to the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT), Campi ya Kanzi proved a fascinating camp to visit. The juxtapositions of humans and... More

My Mom and I visited in July on our first trip to Africa. We heard about Campi ya Kanzi from a good friend you had been 3 times before. What we found was everything that was promised and much more. We felt a connection to Africa that was beyond just experiencing the wildlife. We learned about the Masai culture, the... More

I know it's cliche to say it changed my life, but visiting Campi ya Kanzi and having an authentic African experience did. I found Campi ya Kanzi through a good friend that encouraged my new wife and I to travel there on our honeymoon. We had not even considered going to Kenya on our honeymoon, but after a couple conversations... More

My husband and I stayed at Campi ya Kanzi for 5 wonderful nights. The food was incredible and the lodge's atmosphere was always pitch perfect - airy and open for lunch, then cozily lit with lanterns for dinner. The accommodations were excellent as well, mixing the right amount of rustic luxury with an eco consciousness respect for nature and conservation.... More
