If you enjoy getting away from the crowds while still having a bit of comfort and cultural immersion, then Campi ya Kanzi is for you. I would recommend at least 5 days at Campi ya Kanzi to get the full experience. My wife and I spent a week at the camp and every day was different with a mix of activities that left us with a big smile. We had two guides that made the trip very special for us, Parashi and Sunde, and of course our host Stefano. It was a very personalized experience and we felt that we were part of a family at the camp and not just a guest. I would suggest that if you go you try the fly camping (and while at it offer to buy a local goat to share with your Maasai hosts - you will never forget the experience as simple as it sounds). The price for an African safari is not cheap, but you get what you pay for. I would highly recommend Campi ya Kanzi and hope to return someday soon. I've heard some reviews that it is difficult to see wildlife at the camp. We saw leopards, lions (right outside our tent), cheetahs, giraffes, buffalo, zebras, and dozens of other animals along with a tremendous variety of birds. The animals are difficult to see, but it makes the search for them more rewarding AND keep in mind that you will be the only people in sight which makes the experience more authentic and you can go at your own pace. You also have the ability to walk as you please with a Maasai guide by foot who enjoys sharing the secrets of this amazing continent. There is no price to put on being able to do this. In short, Campi ya Kanzi is a special gem of a place that deserves a visit. The people, accommodations, food, terrain and location are fantastic.
