Mathew's Kitich Camp

You are Here: › Kitich Camp

Kitich Camp in the remote Mathews Mountains is a rarely visited area in far northern Kenya. It is nestled in a verdant grove of fig trees, indigenous flowering shrubs and prehistoric Cycad palms.

The camp faces a bank of the seasonal Ngeng River and is surrounded by thickly wooded hillsides and craggy peaks.

The Mathews Mountain Range rise up out of the desert; a chain of peaks covered in dense dewy forest.

In a remote valley, Camp Kitich overlooks a river glade within the lush indigenous forest.

The forest is home to elephant, melanistic leopard, bushbuck, giant forest hog, rhino, buffalo, as well as ancient.

With only six guest tents, one can expect complete privacy. Each en suite tent is traditionally safari-style, with an al-fresco stone bathroom.
