Kambi ya Tembo
This extension is a great beginning or ending to any safari. The adventure begins or ends at the Kambi ya Tembo Camps, located near the Kenyan border. From here, in the shadow of majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro, you will have the opportunity to experience night drives and nature walks, all accompanied by local Maasai warriors. Search for bull elephants and other game while learning about the Maasai way of life. Your permanent camp is comfortable with beds and private baths. Enjoy time away from the busier safari parks and learn directly from the Maasai who are your hosts and new friends.
Days 1-2 Kambi ya Tembo
Have breakfast at the lodge before departure to the West Kilimanjaro area.
