Kenya: Relais d’Afrique, an experience colonial style
Kitich Camp, Ol Malo and Tana Delta are ranches located in complete different places of Kenya. All them are far away from the massive tourism sanctuaries and operate for preserving the savage African nature, the animals and the local ethnic groups such as the Samburu and the Orma tribes which live since forever according their traditions and natural equilibrium. The few and lucky guests of the ranches can be in contact with the perfect harmony that connects men, animals, and nature.
Kitick Camp is located in the Mathews Range, north of the Samburu Natural Reserve. In the south-east the Mathews Peach reaches 2375 meters. It is a tented camp located in the bush in a space crossed by the Ngene River. The water and the pasture attract buffaloes, leopards, lions and elephants. Giulio Bertolli, an Italian man with a huge experience in Africa, has made of this land his home.
Ol Malo is the residence of Colin and Rocky Francombe and their daughter Giulia. This property is on the Laikipia highlands, the farms region in the north of Nairobi. It is a 5000 acres ranch located on the top of a rocky place that dominates the immense highland where the river Ewaso Ngiro flows. When the sky is clear it is possible to see the Kenya Mountain to rise from the Loldaika Mountains chain. A Samburu tribe live here and shares this huge land with elephants, giraffes and leopards.
Tana Delta is a mixed tent and bungalow camp located in the coast just on the Tana river delta. From the top of the hill where it is situated the sight sweeps all around the sea, the river and the forest. Here we are in the middle of an unique ecosystem where the river and the sea joint together, the crocodiles hide in the mangroves and the Orma tribe lives.
