Dubbed a ‘biological bonanza’ by the BBC, the Mathews Mountain Range
rises up out of the desert: a chain of peaks covered in dense dewy
forest. In a remote valley, Kitich Camp is an idyllic hideaway and an
authentic ‘bush camp’. Built from local materials, everything about
Kitich Camp has been left as natural as possible. With only six
traditional safari-style guest tents, one can expect complete privacy.
The camp nestles in a verdant grove of fig trees on the bank of the
Ngeng River. Kitich Camp’s cosy lounge overlooks the floodlit river
glade – from here guests can enjoy watching the elephants, buffalo, bush
buck, and occasionally leopard, emerge from the forest at dusk. Walk
along forest paths guided by the Samburu and Ndorobo people or swim in
natural rock pools of the crystal mountain streams. Kitich Camp offers a
truly unique and private forest wildlife experience like no other in
Africa. Kitich Camp has been awarded ‘Silver Level’ by Ecotourism Kenya
in recognition of its high level of environmental responsibility.
