Kitich Camp Double Tent

Kitich Camp

In a forest dubbed a ‘biological bonanza’ by the BBC

6 Rooms


South of Lake Turkana in Laikipia

Once you’ve been transferred from the airstrip to the lodge, you will not set foot in a vehicle again until you leave.

Kitich is a unique safari camp located in the remote Mathews Mountain range, a rarely visited area of Northern Frontier District, in Kenya. Overlooking the stunning Ngeng River, Kitich is only accessible by air and specialises in walking safaris. It’s a lovely retreat for guests who appreciate remoteness and gentle nature walks. The romantic setting at Kitich is ideal for a honeymoon or vow renewal.

Everything about Kitich Camp has been left as natural as possible, without sacrificing any important creature comforts. Each of the six luxury tents has its own veranda and view over the valley floor, where elephants, buffalo and other wildlife often come to drink. The tents have en-suite bathrooms built from local stone with an outdoor safari shower under the stars. Water is heated over a cedar deadwood fire by each tent and is available in whatever quantity guests need.

Kitich is owned and managed by the charismatic Guilio Bertolli, who is an expert guide, host extraordinaire and an integral part of the Kitich experience. Guilio and his Ndorobo/Samburu guides (masters of the forest) lead the walking safaris, which can be either a gentle walk up the valley for an hour or so, or a full day hike with a hamper lunch and swimming in rock pools. Dubbed a ‘biological bonanza’ by the BBC, this mountain forest is a stronghold for a wide range of species. Wild animals such as Melanistic leopard, also known as the “black panther”, forest elephant, the rare De Brazza Monkey, lion, buffalo, Colobus monkey, greater kudu, waterbuck, giant forest hogs and Africa’s endangered wild dog as well as Grevy’s zebra have found refuge in the lush forests and fertile valleys of the Mathews Range.
