Kitich Forest Camp is in a truly remote wilderness, located in an exquisite forest glade on the upper slopes of the Mathews Mountains. The forest of the Mathews Mountains covers about 900 km² and the astounding peaks rise to over 8000 ft. from the surrounding lowlands. An enchanted camp with only six tents situated under a dense tree canopy, overlooking the stunning Ngeng River, this camp is a low-key classic with charming en suite bathrooms, with safari style showers and flush toilets. Spend your days exploring this wild region on foot as you embark on guided bush walks with Samburu warriors who are truly passionate about this area that is their home and heritage
