Kipalo Hills

Simplicity in the African bush

Kipalo Hills is a simple comfortable camp set in 12,000 acres of conservancy bordering Tsavo west national park. Kipalo means “a special place where one returns to again and again” in the Teita language.

Set amid the Mbulia Hills bordering and overlooking Tsavo West National Park and Kilimanjaro in the distance, the camp offers eight luxury double mobile tents as accommodation. The tents are en-suite with flushing loo and shower (hot and cold water), and are either twin or double with room for an extra bed. There is a lounge mess and dining area, and a swimming pool to take cooling dips in. The camp offers delicious, fresh cuisine, as well as sundowners and bush breakfasts.

The conservancy is an important dry season dispersal area for mainly elephant and buffalo, but there are numerous other species of wildlife and the birding is fantastic. Explore the rich diverse landscape on day and night game drives in the conservancy, and on stunning guided bush walks. You'll also have a chance to go on cultural visits to the local Taita villages and to speak to an ex-poacher and his old hidden lairs. For something completely wild, go fly-camping beside the Galana River.
