Campi Ya Kanzi

Campi Ya Kanzi is a beautiful Italian-styled safari lodge located in the Kuku Group Ranch, a private concession situated between Tsavo and Amboseli National Parks.

Located between Amboseli and Tsavo National Parks, in what is one of Kenya's prime game spots, Campi Ya Kanzi is a luxury tented safari camp as well as an experiment in eco-tourism and conservation. The camp is situated in the Kuku Group Ranch, almost 300,000 acres of prime bush land owned by a local community of Masai.

Furnished with a stylish blend of Italian and Masai decor, Campi Ya Kanzi has a relaxed atmosphere, which is also reflected in the activities. The camp offers tailor-made safaris rather than inflexible, scheduled game activities, allowing you to spend as much or as little time on game activities as you please. Campi Ya Kanzi is a great camp at which to simply relax, with good opportunities for viewing game from the comfort of your room. Alternatively, you can take part in a variety of safari activities, including 4x4 drives, walking safaris, and Masai village visits.


Campi Ya Kanzi accommodates a maximum of 14 guests in six en-suite thatch-and-canvas cottages and in two separate suites (the Hemingway and Simba suites). Each of the tented cottages offers a different view, though inside they are more or less identical. They accommodate one or two adults each (an additional bed can be provided if travelling with a child). The suites have the advantage of a king-size bed and a dressing room.

The cottages are all constructed of wood, stone and canvas, and raised on a wooden platform. Private verandahs offer beautiful views of Kilimanjaro, or the Tsavo and Chyulu Hills.


The menus at Campi Ya Kanzi emphasise Italian flavours, including home-made pasta, breads and ice cream.

Delicious bush meals are provided during game drives and other excursions.

Environmental Policy

Campi Ya Kanzi has been built with the aid of the local Masai, who are also involved in the management and running of the camp. No contractors have been used to build the lodge, in order to guarantee the community an income.
