Overview of Kambi ya Tembo

Facing the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro, Kambi ya Tembo is a classic tented camp, known for its incredible views. The camp is located in the Sinya concession bordering Kenya and the Amboseli National Park. This small, intimate camp is ideal for those looking for a private, authentic safari experience.

Apart from seeing Mount Kilimanjaro, you will also enjoy beautiful views of Mount Meru and the vast African savannah around you. These semi-arid lands of Sinya and Elerai are home to some of the largest elephants in East Africa and you will spot them and many other incredible animals. Visit a traditional Maasai village for a cultural interaction, or head out on a walking safari in the company of a Maasai warrior.
