During our 10 day stay at Kanzi in June-July 2014, we spent one night out in the bush at the fly camp. This was the experience of a life time! Kanzi's Cessna 206 took us on the short flight to the bush camp where we had the opportunity to spend a day and a night with a wonderful bucket shower,... More

I came here with my Mother and Father in June of 2014. It was the conclusion to our month-long safari in Tanzania and Kenya. It is safe to say that we wished we spent our entire month at this wonderful camp! Having travelled world-wide, it is the most picturesque, unfathomable, stunningly gorgeous location that I have ever visited. The staff... 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.
