Kitich Camp, owned and run by Gulio Bertolli, is hidden in the hills on the banks of the Ngeng River and nestled in a lush grove of fig trees, indigenous flowering shrubs and prehistoric palms in the remote Mathews mountains. Kitich means ‘Place of happiness’ a lush oasis amid arid surroundings and everything about Kitich camp has been left natural as possible without sacrificing any important creature comforts. As there are no roads, activities around the camp generally involve walking. Guests can walk to a natural swimming pool or stroll to an isolated fishing hole full of Catfish and Barbel in the company of an armed ranger. The surrounding forest is interesting for those who appreciate flora and fauna and the Ngeng valley is a refuge for elephants, lions, leopards, forest hogs and buffalos. Accommodation is offered in six tents which look out over the seasonal Ngeng River and wetland where buffalo and elephant forage at night. True to the traditional approach to safari, Kitich still uses long-drop toilets, bucket showers and kerosene lighting. Category: Exclusive Camp
