Campi ya Kanzi (Swahili for "Camp of the Hidden Treasure") is a luxury eco-tourism safari camp located in the Chyulu Hills of southeast Kenya near Tsavo West National Park. The camp offers private, professionally guided safaris and a unique experience unlike any other available in East Africa, complete with breathtaking landscapes, abundant wildlife, and authentic immersion in Maasai culture. A long-time well recognized leader in the eco-tourism sector and have won many awards, including the Tourism for Tomorrow Award, the Eco-Warrior Award, and the Condènast World Savers Award. Campi ya Kanzi is the first lodge to receive a Gold Eco-Rating from Ecotourism Kenya, and we were recently accredited as a Global Ecosphere Retreat.
Campi ya Kanzi stands out among local safari camps because guests can walk and hike alongside wildlife instead of staying confined to a vehicle - truly a rarity in Africa. The camp is near national parks but not in them, so guests can enjoy all the wildlife of the parks without any of the restrictions. In addition to hiking and traditional game drives, guests can also ride horses, go mountain biking, and take scenic airplane flights. Features include a pool, a hot tub, and professional masseuses.
