We had wanted to go to Kitich for a long time and finally managed to organize a trip there in September 2014. Like all the Cheli and Peacock lodges, a lot of attention is paid to details, which makes the place even more special. The rooms and mess area are tastefully decorated and comfortable, and the limited number of guests... More

Thank you so much for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Kitich Camp. With all the environmental-friendly practices you have kindly mentioned, Kitich was able to move up to a Gold Eco Rating in November and is now one of only 17 camps in Kenya with this rating. The walks are so exciting at this... More

Had a fantastic time at Kitich, the staff were great, the scenery amazing and the hosts Karl and Sally where brilliant. Very laid back and the perfect place to get away from reality and rejuvenate. Don't expect to see exceptional amounts of game but there is a super-heard of elephants as well as plenty of leopard sign, plus the usual... More

This is an exceptional luxury safari camp nestled into the Mathews Mountains in Kenya. Carl and Sally are outstanding hosts who are both passionate about the camp, the environment and your safari experience. Being a walking camp it provides a "real Africa" experience. Truly unique since you get the opportunity to closely interact and learn from the staff who are... More

Our tented camp was right on the water. The tent was separated into two areas – one for sleeping and the other the bath/dressing area. The hot water for the shower is brought to you whenever you need it and placed in a container outside the tent so nobody need enter your tent. There was always plenty of water. The... More

Thank you for great review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Kitich is one of the most remote camps in Kenya and we are the only people to use the road - it has always been a bit bumpy! Looking forward to you joining us again in the future, Warm regards, Karl and Sally More

This isn't your average camp. It is a luxury Eco camp deep in thick forests of the mountain north of samburu. If you want to see the big 5 this is not your destination.

upon arriving at Kitich and getting personally welcomed by the camp managers, Sally and Karl, we quickly came to the description of Kitich as "Chicken soup for the soul." There is a real remote feeling about the camp and the walking aspect of safari gives a different insight rather than sitting in the safari car the whole time. My highlight... More

Kitich was unlike any other camp we encountered in Namibia, Kenya or Botswana. Tiny, in a high lush river valley, it was gorgeous and quiet. Instead of driving, you can take walks of varying length through the valley and along the river and up onto the ridges, accompanied by Samburu guides, with time to look at butterflies, birds, insects, and...

This is such a beautiful place I almost don't want to review it as then more people will know about it! The drive there, across a few rivers in flood was exciting, but at the end of the road is a haven of peace and tranquility.
