Set amidst a lush indigenous mountain forest in the Mathews Mountain Range and overlooking the seasonal Ngeng River and Kitich Valley, Kitich Forest Camp provides a unique escape into the captivating landscapes of northern Kenya. With traditional safari charm and  tents overlooking a river frequented by wildlife and colourful birds and butterflies, the camp delivers an exciting and unique wilderness experience.

At Kitich Forest Camp, the emphasis is on walking and hiking, allowing you to explore the pristine ancient forests. With experienced Samburu trackers as guides, you can intimately experience the distinctive and diverse fauna and flora, including a plethora of bird life, forest elephant, leopard, buffalo, wild dog, and the rare De Brazza monkey. The camp also offers the opportunity to swim in crystal-clear rock pools and enjoy bush picnics and sundowners in picturesque forest clearings.

Beyond the wildlife and natural beauty, guests can delve into the rich Samburu culture through cultural visits to the Singing Wells and Ngilai Village. Witness the unique tradition of young warriors singing as they draw water from wells, calling their cattle to drink by song, or explore the vibrant local market and school in Ngilai Village. Back at the camp, the cosy lounge overlooks an open river glade, providing a perfect vantage point to relax and observe passing wildlife.

Safari Tent

The tents at Kitich Forest Camp are designed to blend seamlessly with the surrounding wilderness, with comfortable furnishings and stylish touches. The camp features en-suite canvas tents, carefully designed to exude the rustic charm reminiscent of classic safaris while ensuring comfort and luxury. From the private verandas of each tent, guests can enjoy beautiful views of the seasonal Ngeng River and valley beyond, and often the passing elephant or other wildlife.

Inside the tents are all the essential amenities. The en-suite bathrooms are equipped with flushing toilets and bucket showers, for refreshing convenience in the heart of the forest. Kitich Forest Camp strikes a wonderful balance between an authentic, eco-conscious approach and the provision of modern comforts for you to enjoy and fully unwind.


The essence of Kitich is to showcase the unique forested surroundings, and to do so provides a range of facilities to encourage a full experience of the location. Instead of a traditional swimming pool, head out with your guide to discover the fresh crystal-clear spring-fed forest pools, where you can take a refreshing dip in these perfect wild swimming spots. Picnics can be prepared for these outings for you to enjoy a delightful meal surrounded by lush trees and dappled sunlight.

The camp operates on solar power for an eco-friendly experience. Although hairdryers are not supported, you can conveniently charge all your devices using the available power outlets. After a day of exploration, the well-stocked forest bar offers a cheerful ambiance to indulge in a drink of choice, while the inviting lounge area provides a comfortable space to relax and socialise.


Kitich's dining experience is a delightful blend of hearty cuisine, serene surroundings, and warm camaraderie. With a maximum of only 12 guests in camp, mealtimes are a shared affair, encouraging a relaxed togetherness in the charming dining area. The daily set menu showcases traditional Italian recipes passed down through generations, influenced by local flavours, and using fresh organic ingredients sourced from the camp's kitchen garden.
