Very nice place to stay, confortable, excellent staff, very professional. The fact that the owners are involved in your daily activities gives a special note to a very gratifying safari experience. Depending on time of the year the game drive can lack of a lot of fauna but the staff covers it with all sort of very nice activities that...

Before I booked, I read the reviews and almost every single one says this is spectacular - and IT IS!!! Our room/tent was luxurious, but in a rustic, safari kind of way and private - which was why we were there - we overlooked the watering hole all the way at the end. The food and service was as top...

When we arrived at Camp ya Kanzi's dirt airstrip and were met by our Maasai driver in his colorful robes I knew we were in for something special. When we arrived at the camp and saw all the beautiful Maasai workers, as well as Luca, the owner, lined up in front of the gorgeous thatched roof lodge to greet us,...

Returned to Campi Ya Kanzi for the second time, after staying there in April 2007. Was glad to find out that other than the great safari game-rides, Safari walks, beautiful sun-downs, Kilimanjaro view, superb Italian cuisine and the kind hospitality, they have built a big swimming pool. The staff in Campi will make you feel very welcomed and will be...

Campi Ya Kanzi was a big surprise in the middle of great Kenyan Rift Valley. I chose to stay at Campi Ya Kanzi because I wanted to visit West Tsavo and Amboseli, and by staying there I could do both, but I hope to go back soon to enjoy the place more. The camp staff where amazing, Samson was very...

This remote camp is a wonderful experience to be had. The rooms are beautiful and very private. The amenities have everything you could possibly need. The staff are excellent and food plentiful.

To start Luca and the whole Campi ya Kanzi family are great hosts, when we first arrived we were greeted by both and we had an amazing lunch. The rooms are very nice and comfortable with nice views. The best part of the lodge is that its located in a private conservancy and the maasai communities that live there are...

This small, family-run camp combines luxury with great animal viewing. We loved our visit, We had zebras and warthogs in our front yard the entire time. We could hear the hyenas all around us at night. Our visits to local villages, schools and clinics made us feel good about the part of our fees that went to supporting the local...
