Blog - News ; Kitich Kenya's secret forest in the sky

 If you know where to look Kenya has some simply wonderful and unexpected treasures. Busanga Safaris tag line is 'Fantastic Wildlife - Wonderfully Wild Places' And Kitich Camp is exactly that. 

Nestled in lush woodland on the slopes of the Mathews Mountain range which sticks up in to the sky from the arid desert of Northern Kenya is unlike anywhere else. 
Apparently out of context  in the woodlands are herds of Elephant and Buffalo and Lions. The valley in which Kitich sits resonates to the sound of Ele's communicating calls and there is an incredible diversity birds and butterflies. The Mathews are home to achingly rare Black (melanistic) Leopard and so nights in camp drift by all to quickly as floodlights illuminate a clearing just in front of Kitich.

A big part of a stay here is to share it with the people who know it best.  Kitich manager - Emma Hedges thrives in the deserts  and mountains of Northern Kenya, and for 30  years explored the furthest reaches with her camels  and Samburu team. 

She speaks Samburu, built a small rustic lodge near  the southern tip of Lake Turkana, and guides  walking safaris. 

There is no-one better qualified to share their knowledge of the wild forest and the community surrounding it.

Safari Summary

To visit Kitich is easy, with the choice to fly in (and experience one of Kenya’s most interesting landings !) or drive. 

We think that Kitich combined with the Lewa conservancy, the little known Shaba Reserve or the plains of the Mara makes for an exceptional  and very varied Kenya wildlife safari. Which we highly recommend.

We have itinerary suggestions call Tony for more info and we can email you some thing to look at.
