Kambi Ya Tembo Camp

Tented comfort set in a breathtaking landscape

Kambi Ya Tembo Camp

This permanent tented lodge offers wonderful safari isolation from a private concession. Bush simplicity is incorporated into the style of the camp, creating a rustic charm. The open air thatched structures offer inspiring views of Amboseli Plains, Kilimanjaro National Park and Mount Kilimanjaro. However, the draw card is not the big 5 but rather a unique experience away from the crowds.

At the lodge

The hotel

Large, simply appointed area, dining and lounge are side-by-side often spilling into each other. Private dining tables are splashed out across a sand floor, under an open air thatched roof. The lounge has comfy chairs and sofas sporadically placed to invite conversation, promoting the warm atmosphere present throughout. This leads onto the blazing campfire surrounded by directors chairs, the perfect place to end a day on safari.

The rooms

The camp consists of fourteen well appointed tents with thatched permanent structures covering them, decorated with an eclectic mix of African furnishings and linen, that fit in beautifully with this wilderness environment. The en-suite bathrooms have built-in showers, breath-taking views from a private veranda that either overlooks the nearby plains or kilimanjaro in the distance.

Mighty herds of elephant with some of Africa's last big Tuskers roam freely in the Mount Kilimanjaro National Park. Wildlife is not as dense as in other parks, but the experience is that much more intimate. Keep an eye out for buffalo, giraffe, zebra and the comical long-necked gerenuk with lion, leopard and cheetah rarely seen. The western parts of Mount Kilimanjaro National Park enjoy the best game viewing of the region.
