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.
Kitich Camp’s cosy lounge with open fire and sheepskin-covered safari chairs overlooks the floodlit river glade – from here guests can enjoy watching the wildlife 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, Camp Kitich offers a truly unique and private forest wildlife experience.
Camp Kitich is accessible via private charter to Ngelai airstrip (10 kms from Kitich).
Camp Kitich is a permanent tented camp of six twin luxury tents, each featuring its own veranda and view. Each tent has large comfortable beds and en-suite bathroom with canvas safari-style hot water showers.
