LAS TIENDAS

Kandili Camp offers 6 spacious luxury tents (available in queen/ twin / king beds and the option to add an extra bed) all with ensuite bathroom,

All our tents are brand new and decorated with warm colours, in a modern African style. They are surrounded by wild nature with wonderful views to the savannah and the Olololo escarpment in the background.

Kandili Camp also has 2 new suites decorated with Swahili style craft and furniture from the archipelago of Lamu, and unique pieces of African art. Each suite has a spacious bedroom, fully equiped bathroom, a spacious living room with seating area and library, a large terrace where you can enjoy private lunches and dinners EACH ONE OF THEM HAS AN OUTSIDE BONEFIRE.

Our guests live and enjoy first-hand the large number of animals that walk pass the tents and, each evening, they witness the wonderful sunset from their terrace, when the sun goes down hiding behind the Olololo escarpment.

At dusk or when you need, a Masai lights the fire that heats the water for your shower. When you arrive to your tent, you will find prepared plenty of water naturally heated with firewood.

 

LIVING AND DINING ROOM

 

The common areas include a spacious lounge and dining area with bar where you can enjoy the spectacular sunsets, a sitting area with library where you can relax with the wonderful views.

With good weather conditions, we set the tables outside, on the grass, under an acacia or next to the fire.

Apart from our privileged location, our offer includes excellent Mediterranean cuisine, personal and customised service, and
real African hospitality.

In Kandili Camp, the traveller experiences the incredible feeling of being part of the wild nature of Africa, with open skies,
endless views, and the sound and smell of the savannah, experiencing its fascinating wild life and witnessing the incredibly colourful skies at dusk. Our guests are taken back in time to the old classic safaris. Our exquisite Kenyan barbeque (Nyama-choma) and the lighting with candles (giving name to our Kandili Camp) ensure the sensation of old style safaris.
