From the dry, yellow savannah that epitomises northern Kenya’s expansive plains rises 900 square kilometres of lush mountain forest like no other in East Africa.

This is a place where elephants forge trails amongst ancient hardwood trees and endemic cycads, where crystal clear streams form natural swimming pools, and where rare and endangered monkeys thrive under the protection of local Samburu communities.

Nestled in one of the valleys – overlooking a river frequented by African painted dogs, colourful birds, leopards and elephants - are six tents. Kitich Forest Camp offers traditional safari charm in a wilderness quite unlike any other in Africa, and delivers an experience as equally unforgettable for those discovering Africa for the first time, as it does for those lucky enough to have spent many years exploring it. 



“Wildlife superb”

Had a great time at Kitich… Elephants put on quite a show in front of lodge at night and on our adventures. Food was good, all in all quite fun and exciting.”

“The guides are exceptional”

“They are very obviously proud of their work and of being part of Kitich... We spotted many animals and birds along our walks and saw awe-inspiring views… We were also very well looked after by various others of the team - the food and drink were fantastic and the service brilliant. The experience felt like one in a lifetime and we would not hesitate to go back.”

“Kitich brings you back to the simple pleasures of life”

“Kitich fits in perfectly; it is very low key, and hidden away on the edge of the Ngeng River. The food is excellent, the camp staff are attentive but low key, the guides are well informed, and always conscious of client safety on walks. The bird life is incredible as are the constant sounds. Get away from the fast life we all live. Kitich unwinds you and brings you back to the simple pleasures of life.”
