We ended our safari at Campi Ya Kanzi with Luca, Samson, Sunde, Pachet, and the rest of the Ya Kanzi crew. It couldn't have been a more perfect complement to the rest of our trip (Lewa House and Mara Plains). While you won't get the density of game sightings of the Mara, or even Lewa, the terrain is absolutely breathtaking,...

Kampi ya Kanzi is a unique safari experience. The staff are genuine, the food is the best you'll get on safari in Kenya, and the philosophy is what sets it apart. Luca, Antonella and Stefano are true ambassadors of sustainable tourism in all senses on the often over-used phrase. They have in the last 20 years formed a significant community,...
