Campi ya Tembo is the private, 3-tents camp owned and managed by Saruni in the Masai Mara. Located in a wild, scenic valley rich both in wildlife and privacy, where no other vehicles are ever met, Campi ya Tembo is a design camp with oriental-looking tents and all the comforts: flush toilets, hot and cold water, large showers, excellent cuisine and open Land Rovers.
Elegantly styled, each tent has a large verandah with uninterrupted views over the Yaile mountains of Northern Masai Mara and a big bonfire where the Masai warriors come and dance at night.
Campi ya Tembo’s secret valley has a large resident population of elephant, giraffe, zebra, buffalo and impala. Ideal for walking, for birdwatching and for observing wild animals that are still not used to the human presence, the camp will provide our guests with a unique experience: the Masai Mara off the beaten tracks.
The location is a piece of pristine, old Africa, still totally untouched by modern development: thousands of acres where there are no roads, no villages, no humans. Wildlife is abundant, but not habituated to contact with vehicles. This is true Africa and we have trained our guides to the highest standard to provide a thrilling, adventurous but comfortable experience. You will track wild animals and learn bush skills. Walks are individually tailored and are set in a breathtaking valley, forests, springs and mountains.
Our tented camp is an ideal base fro those who interested in watching, tracking and studying elephants. An activity offered at Campi ya Tembo is night game drives: all the nocturnal species are abundant around the camp, from leopard to greater galago, from genet to white tailed mongoose. Weather conditions are ideal all year round: it’s never too hot
