This was my fourth safari, the first starting with Jack's Camp in Botswana, which I compared all others to, until Campi ya Kanzi. This was truly the most outstanding camp, more than just another luxurious camp. This is a camp nestled in the Chyulu Hills within the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust land. This means that you can be on an... More

Our time in Kenya was split between three camps - all of luxury quality - and Campi ya Kanzi was far and away the best. The accommodations were lovely, the food very great but it was the service that set it apart. Everyone went out of their way to learn our names and to attend to whatever we needed. As... More

Our stay at Campi ya Kanzi was breathtaking, private and peaceful. We arrived by charter plane at the Campi air strip, and were greeted by Luca and then by his wonderful staff. The wildlife was awesome. The game drives, plane rides, food (delicious and plentiful) and accommodations were great. Seeing and interacting with the older orphaned elephants at Ithumba was... More

We had a great time for a short two day, two night stay. We were very well looked after and enjoyed multiple different experiences while there. Luca has a passion and a vision for how to run a lodge in an environmentally sound way and though there may be some sacrifices noticed by some, we did not feel any compromise... More

My wife and I met in 2003, during our introduction, we spoke about both of us having a common dream, "to visit Africa". Although it had taken us 12 years to finally commit to visiting Kenya, and without knowing much about the place, we asked for the guidance and assistance of a African Travel Agent. One of the first places... More

Words cannot convey the magic of this place, or of its people. If you have the chance, the best advice I can give you is go! When I got here it felt like I had stepped into paradise, and when it was time to go, I didn't want to leave.

We went to Africa for our honeymoon and it has been the most amazing experience of our life. The first stop and perhaps the best one was staying in Kampi. They came to pick us up from Nairobi in the smallest plane I have ever seen but the experience was amazing as from the heights we saw all the animals... More

We ended our safari at Campi Ya Kanzi with Luca, Samson, Sunde, Pachet, and the rest of the Ya Kanzi crew. It couldn't have been a more perfect complement to the rest of our trip (Lewa House and Mara Plains). While you won't get the density of game sightings of the Mara, or even Lewa, the terrain is absolutely breathtaking,... More

Campi ya Kanzi is a wonderful safari and cultural experience at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro, in Kenya’s beautiful Chyulu Hills. It’s a small luxury camp (8 tents) with lovely accommodations and terrific food. The camp is a joint enterprise between an Italian couple and the local Maasai group ranch and provides a unique ability to connect not only with... More

Kampi ya Kanzi is a unique safari experience. The staff are genuine, the food is the best you'll get on safari in Kenya, and the philosophy is what sets it apart. Luca, Antonella and Stefano are true ambassadors of sustainable tourism in all senses on the often over-used phrase. They have in the last 20 years formed a significant community,... More
