Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Kitich Camp

overview

Safari Highlights

This forest hideaway provides exclusive accommodation in the remote Matthews Mountain Range (also known as the Lenkiyio Hills) and overlooks the flourishing gorge of the Ngeng River. Kitich Camp is part of the prestigious Elewana Collection of camps.

Kitich Camp Kenya

A Magical Atmosphere

Nestling in a rich green forest grove on the upper slopes of the mountain range, Kitich Camp is a truly private lodge. Six semi-permanent tents sit under the tree canopy with welcoming safari comforts of fresh linen, iced drinks and Italian-influenced dining. Each tent has an en suite stone walled bathroom with bucket shower and long drop toilet. After a day in the mountains the camp's natural rock pools formed by crystal clear mountain streams will entice you in. The open fireplace in the cosy lounge is a very pleasant place to while away the evenings.

Wilderness Exploration

Bush walk Kitich Camp Kenya

Guides at Kitich Camp are from the Samburu and Ndorobo tribes nearby and therefore have a wealth of intimate knowledge about the area; its vegetation, history and wildlife. Preferring traditional bush walks over more modern game drives the guides will take guests on foot to get up close to see elephant, leopard, buffalo and spectacular butterflies, turaco birds and wild orchids. Other activities include river swimming, bush picnics, bird watching and a cultural visit to the local village of Ngalai. Kitich Camp welcomes children over the age of 12 years due to the nature of the mountain range.
