The Kitich Camp is within the magnificent forests of the Mathews Mountain Range in the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy of Kenya, East Africa. During a stay, travellers explore fantastic forest trails through the wilderness and crystal clear mountain streams by foot. The lounge overlooks the floodlit open river in front of the camp, and in the evenings and at night, one can observe bushbuck, buffalo, elephant, and sometimes leopard comes out from the forest to quench their thirst at the river.
This exceptional forest hideaway provides exclusive accommodation for a small number of guests. Kitich has six en-suite offer either double or twin beds. Each of these luxury tents provides views of the lush gorge of the Ngeng River. Guests enjoy the main bedroom with en-suite bathroom, complemented by a traditional safari shower.
At Kitich Camp, the meals are enjoyed together with vistas overlooking the river glade. Meals are served according to a daily set menu, whereby Italian recipes, freshly baked bread as well as fresh organic ingredients make for a delicious affair. Special dietary requirements can be catered for before arrangements ( vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc.).
The guides are from Ndorobo and Samburu origin which is a semi-nomadic community closely related to the Masai. Known for their exceptional bush and tracking skills, the guides are the masters of the forest which surrounds the camp.
Set in this genuinely remote location in a stunning forest valley located on the slopes of the Mathews Mountains, which is also known as Lenkiyio Hills, the forest covers about 900 km², and the fantastic peaks rise 6000 ft. from the surrounding lowlands. This region of Kenya is not a traditional game driving region, and mass tourism is not found here.
This forest is a refuge for elephant and a natural habitat for the forest leopard. Furthermore, the forest has a large diversity of wildlife, such as rare monkeys, buffaloes, lions, bushbuck, and forest hogs. Over 150 species of butterfly, more than 350 species of birds, as well as the wild forest orchids, and the endemic giant cycad can be found here.
