Our Story

A true African experience, unlike any tour programme, putting eco-tourism and sustainability first.

Purpose-built in 2020, Chyulu Wilderness Camp is the first zero-emissions and carbon negative eco-lodge in Kenya. 

Fully-powered by solar energy, the camp uses photovoltaic panels for electricity and hot water. The camp recycles all waste and treats grey and black waters with ecological techniques. All kitchens are powered by induction and all Land Rovers are retrofitted with an electric motor. The carbon negative is achieved through an afforestation programme funded by Le Rosey.

The aim of the camp is two-fold: to transform agricultural lands into protected, thriving wetlands and through this, offer a life-changing experience to international students in one of the most beautiful landscapes on Earth. Each one-week long project combines adventure expeditioncommunity volunteeringconservation and mindfulness to offer a hands-on 360° experience of eco-tourism and sustainable development. The camp is equipped to welcome up to 60 students in tents with en-suite, and boasts an authentic African lounge, dining room, library, conference room, outdoor fireplace and communal café.

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT

The first camp of its kind to be carbon-zero, fuelled by sustainable energy sources, local farming and with excess emissions offset by the REDD+ programme.

But our commitment to sustainability doesn’t stop at our own infrastructure. We employ and educate local farmers on sustainable farming, natural solutions and drip irrigation, giving them the tools and knowledge to sustainably cultivate and produce a reliable and healthy food source, whilst allowing wildlife to return to the area and live in harmony with human presence.
