Kitich Safari Camp

Mathew’s Forest

The Mathews Mountain Range rise up out of the desert a chain of peaks covered in dense dewy forest. Within this lush indigenous forest, Kitich Camp is an idyllic hideaway and an authentic ‘bush camp’, offering its guests a private and unique forest wildlife experience in Africa. The camp nestles in a verdant grove of fig trees, indigenous flowering shrubs and prehistoric cycad palms, on the bank of the Ngeng River. Built from local materials, everything about Kitich Camp has been left as natural as possible, to guarantee that it blends in perfectly with its surrounding environment. With only six guest tents, one can expect complete privacy. Each en-suite tent is traditionally safari-style, with an al-fresco stonebathroom. Kitich Camp’s cosy lounge overlooks the floodlit river glade – from here guests can enjoy watching elephant, buffalo and bush buck emerge from the forest at dusk. Taking advantage of the pristine wilderness, Kitich Camp avoids traditional game drives, instead encouraging guests to explore these wild environs on foot, guided by local guides. Swim in natural rock pools formed by crystal clear mountain streams, learn traditional ways of tracking wildlife while being guided by local warriors along dense forest paths, unwind by a cosy log fire on chilly evenings with nothing but the sights and sounds of this pure wilderness.
