Disappointing 3 night stay On our arrival at Campi ya Kanzi we were met by Tricia [-], Executive Assistant to the Director. She welcomed us briefly, ran through various extra activities available (all of which were chargeable extras) and showed us to our lodge. We then had a pleasant lunch with a very friendly large yoga group who were leaving...

We stayed for 9 days (Dec.31/Jan.9), a family of four, two tented cottages. Beautiful accommodations and warmest hospitality ever. Great experience of nature and wilderness through your five senses. You get in touch with the Maasai heritage and a big family of friends. Go there, stay open and you'll see life's smiling.
