Tented camp facing the snow-capped peaks of Kilimanjaro.
Kambi Ya Tembo
Kambi Ya Tembo tented camp is located on Sinya, a private concession of about 600 square km, bordering Kenya at Amboseli National Park. The camp offers spectacular landscapes with magnificent views of Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru, Ol Doinyo Longido and Ol Doinyo Orok. A unique nature and cultural experience.
The camp is in one of the few areas in Africa where huge Elephant Bulls, more than 50 years old, carrying tusks of considerable size, are regularly seen. These bulls, some of them living permanently in the zone, together with herds of mothers and calves use to migrate between the swamps of Amboseli National Park and the Acacia woodlands of the other side of the border in search of water and food.
Maasai “bomas” (homesteads) are sparsely scattered in Sinya, with a total population of no more than 2.000 people living in a huge area. These maasai still live the traditional way and are not used to the commercial relationship with tourists that is common in more visited areas. They are spectacularly dressed and follow all the traditional ceremonies. The camp has developed a privileged relationship with them being a Community Conservation Project benefiting the maasai of Sinya.
Twelve tents have ensuite facilities, large beds and private verandas.
Activities from the camp include game drives in open vehicles, walking safaris escorted by Maasai warriors, interaction with the local maasai including participation in ceremonies if available.
