Kambi ya Tembo


Immerse yourself in Old Maasai Traditions

with the spectacular Kilimanjaro as your backdrop at Kambi ya tembo


With views of the Kilimajaro and the endless plains of the African savannah, Kambi ya Tembo is a spectacular camp situated on the north face of the Kilimanjaro with fantastic views of Amboseli and where one can enjoy the wildlife in the front line.

The camp is located in Sinya, a 600 square kilometres concession which offers incomparable scenery with magnificent views of the Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru and the Ol Doinyo Longido and Ol Doinyo Orok peaks. It is one of the only places in Africa where one can observe large bull elephants more than 50 years old with enormous tusks.

The Maasai settlements, known as “bomas”, are scattered around Sinya. The Maasai in Sinya continue to live traditionally, dressed in their colourful blankets and celebrating their traditional ceremonies. They aren’t as used to seeing tourists more common in other areas visited by visitors.

Remote and wonderful

Of the four places we stayed on our recent Kenya/Tanzania trip, this was the collective favorite. Remote, peaceful, surrounded by wildlife, and the staff was incredible. Because of the remoteness, things like electronics charging only took place in the main area, but the tents were comfortable and clean, the solar hot water was excellent, and we enjoyed it immensely.
