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.

What kind of experience do you want to have? If you want to rack up a great photo album of all the Big Five animals while bouncing around in a safari truck, head to the Mara. But if you want to escape from the world and let time slow down as you lose yourself in one of the most beautiful... 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. But if you want to understand the local environment and do walking safaris while avoiding the elephants and buffalo, looking at tracks and droppings and swimming... More

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

If you like luxury off the beaten path, if you like to earn your wildlife sitings, lunch and amazing scenery...this place is for you. Only 6 tents in the camp and plenty of people to look after you. Wake up and choose between swimming in the lovely river pools, climb a mountain, search for elephants and lions or lounge and... 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. No driving around here, but lots of walking with the Samburu trackers, picking up... More

Kitich camp is quite remote, three hours drive from Samburu airfield. It is deep up a forested valley and out of phone coverage ( although there is wireless via satellite at the office). That said, it is very peaceful and safe as it is in the heart of a Samburu conservancy where all the local people have a vested interest... More

The most beautiful mountain retreat. If you like gorgeous virgin forest unspoiled nature and hiking then Kitich is for you . The staff answer your every wish , accommodation is very comfortable. Some of the walks will take your breath away , take a picnic in the forest , then sundowner under the baboon rocks , views are dazzling.
