My husband and I stayed at Campi ya Kanzi for 5 wonderful nights. The food was incredible and the lodge's atmosphere was always pitch perfect - airy and open for lunch, then cozily lit with lanterns for dinner. The accommodations were excellent as well, mixing the right amount of rustic luxury with an eco consciousness respect for nature and conservation. This was our second stop in Africa and we had seen a lot of game in our previous safari, so we were more struck by the immersion of the Maasai culture that Campi ya Kanzi provides. We had our own Maasai guide who was excellent, got to see the village, school, and clinic, and an evening of mesmerizing tribal dancing. Because the lodge has such deep roots with the community and part of your fee goes towards the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust we felt so welcome and like there was an honest cultural exchange. The game drives were great, but even better were the guided hikes - after a week in a safari truck my husband and I were ready to stretch our legs! Stefano, Luca, and their team know how to really make you feel at home and have an incredible experience in Kenya. I cannot recommend Campi ya Kanzi highly enough if you're looking for an authentic and refined safari, while still respecting and preserving the land the incredible animals you're there to see.
