One is completely surrounded by nature and wildlife and the stillness and calmness on this earth, but still the accommodation are absolutely amazing with respect to cleanliness, service, convenience and spectacular views from every room and anywhere on the campgrounds.

Campi ya Kanzi is a jewel. As we woke up early the first morning to coffee served to our "tent" by one of the local Maasai employed at the camp, Julie, turned to me and said: "I got it. From now on we are only going to travel to places run by Italians. Every detail is thought through of and...

Everything was plu-perfect, meaning beyond anything I have experienced (and I have been in luxury hotels around the world). First, the flowers and fauna---so exotic and overwhelming, completely different from a zoo.​ Look at my pictures. ​ Then​, secondly,​ how the lodge staff treats its guests---me--I felt like a queen. Room service with excellent food, anytime. The rooms made me...

This was my fourth safari, the first starting with Jack's Camp in Botswana, which I compared all others to, until Campi ya Kanzi. This was truly the most outstanding camp, more than just another luxurious camp. This is a camp nestled in the Chyulu Hills within the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust land. This means that you can be on an...

Our time in Kenya was split between three camps - all of luxury quality - and Campi ya Kanzi was far and away the best. The accommodations were lovely, the food very great but it was the service that set it apart. Everyone went out of their way to learn our names and to attend to whatever we needed. As...

Our stay at Campi ya Kanzi was breathtaking, private and peaceful. We arrived by charter plane at the Campi air strip, and were greeted by Luca and then by his wonderful staff. The wildlife was awesome. The game drives, plane rides, food (delicious and plentiful) and accommodations were great. Seeing and interacting with the older orphaned elephants at Ithumba was...

We had a great time for a short two day, two night stay. We were very well looked after and enjoyed multiple different experiences while there. Luca has a passion and a vision for how to run a lodge in an environmentally sound way and though there may be some sacrifices noticed by some, we did not feel any compromise...

My wife and I met in 2003, during our introduction, we spoke about both of us having a common dream, "to visit Africa". Although it had taken us 12 years to finally commit to visiting Kenya, and without knowing much about the place, we asked for the guidance and assistance of a African Travel Agent.

Words cannot convey the magic of this place, or of its people. If you have the chance, the best advice I can give you is go! When I got here it felt like I had stepped into paradise, and when it was time to go, I didn't want to leave.
