Ol Kanjau Camp
Get lost in Greater Amboseli with Mike and Judy Rainy! Ol Kanjau,
a traditional safari-style tented camp situated just outside Amboseli National
Park, is kept as simple as possible so that you can still "listen to the quiet,
smell air clean enough to eat and try to count a million stars".
Amboseli, found at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro, is home to a growing
population of elephant; the Rainy's will introduce you to several of 52 known
matriarchal elephant families.
Amboseli, meaning "salty dust" in Masai, is an ideal medium for
following animal tracks. After just a few hours on foot with an excellent guide,
reading the tracks is like reading a well-thumbed book, learning about animal
The Masai Mara holds the greatest and most diverse concentration
of wildlife remaining in East Africa today, famous for its lion and cheetah population.
It has some of the finest East African scenery and is home to a great fighting
tribe, the Masai, and a rapidly disappearing hunter and gatherer tribe, the Il
Rekero, Ron and Pauline Beaton's family home, caters for ten guests
in comfortable, thatched cottages with ensuite bathrooms; their traditional tented
camp accommodates up to twelve people.
Rekero provides you with the opportunity to interact with the
local people and the wildlife, gaining an intimate understanding of the Mara.
Rekero also allows wildlife viewing on foot as well as by 4WD vehicles, allowing
you to get very close to nature. Wildlife viewing in the Masai Mara with the Beaton's
is tailored according to the wildlife movement, steered away from mass tourism.
In addition, elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and many other species regularly
visit the waterhole located 30 yards in front of Rekero.
The Beaton's and their Masai partners are a good example of a
community conservation initiative. Cultural visits to neighboring Masai communities,
along with an insight into Masai bush craft, make a visit to Rekero a special
Kitich Camp lies in the southern part of the Matthews Mountain
range, a remote and rarely visited area of Kenya, with the only area road running
to the airstrip! This six-tent, permanent camp is nestled in a verdant grove of
fig trees, indigenous flowering shrubs and prehistoric cycad palms on a bank of
the seasonal Ngeng River, surrounded by thickly wooded hillsides and craggy peaks.
The people of the southern Matthews are the pastoral Samburu and
Soyei who used to gather in the upper valley on the Ngeng River for feasting,
singing and dancing. The only neighbors are these local villagers who work at
the camp; as they know the area so well, they also act as your guides.
The camp itself consists of spacious tents, with safari bucket
showers and ensuite bathrooms. A private swimming pool is shaped into the river
rocks, providing complete privacy. Your host and owner of Kitich is Giulio Bertolli;
he visited Kenya as a client and decided to stay!
Kitich, meaning "the place of happiness", is a lush oasis amid
arid surroundings. The wild animals of the region have found refuge in the valley
of the Matthews mountain range. Elephant, lion, leopard, greater kudu, waterbuck,
forest hog and buffalo are among the species to be found here together with over
100 species of birds.

use patterns. The Camp is seasonal, designed and built to ensure minimal impact
on the natural environment.
