This is such a beautiful place I almost don't want to review it as then more people will know about it! The drive there, across a few rivers in flood was exciting, but at the end of the road is a haven of peace and tranquility. No driving around here, but lots of walking with the Samburu trackers, picking up tracks in the forest, all very exciting to know you are walking a few hundred yards behind some big bull buffalo! The rock pool swimming and swing were a big success, food back at the main lodge wonderful, and we even had a Samburu Santa to visit us. As there are only 6 tents you never feel inundated with people. We wanted to get away from it all at Christmas time and I would say we succeeded with Kitich. I hope that they can find someone to run the place when the current couple leave as it would be a crying shame for this place to disappear off the tourist map.... Thankyou Patrick and Meriam for a truly memorable stay!
