YOUR JOURNEY TO AFRICA

Welcome to Chyulu Wilderness Camp, a brand new carbon-negative and zero-emissions eco-lodge set in the heart of Kenya’s Chyulu Hills; a place to step outside your comfort zone and unburden yourself of the hassles of everyday life, discovering new cultures, adventure and encounters to live an authentic African safari in an exceptional atmosphere.

Chyulu Wilderness Camp is a one-week programme for school groups and individuals to work hand-in-hand with Maasai communities in the heart of the Chyulu Hills. Our programme is focused on delivering positive social and environmental impact to sustainably protect the native lands and support local enterprise.
