Campi ya Kanzi
The name translates as ‘hidden jewel’ and is built from locally sourced and recycled materials. The six camouflaged tents are set up on wooden platforms and have grass roofs to further keep them discreet. Four-poster beds and authentic Italian food from the organic garden make this a sophisticated choice.
Campi ya Kanzi believes in the following: real involvement of local communities, low carbon footprint for electricity and water usage, recycling, building sustainably. They emphasize preserving wilderness, wildlife and culture. They focus on employing locally.
A recent development in geological terms, these green slopes form one of the country’s least known National Parks, and house Leviathan – the world’s longest lava tube. Fast flowing underground rivers pop up to form springs and the surrounds are among the most scenic in Kenya.
