Ol Kanjau Tented Safari Camp is situated at the edge of Africa’s largest slope, Mt Kilimanjaro. The camp is situated adjacent to Amboseli National park and is surrounded by a larger area of true African bushland wilderness owned by Kisongo Maasai pastoralists, who benefit directly when one visits this unrivaled wild open space.
Ol Kanjau is a traditional safari style, mobile tented camp, kept as simple as possible so you can still listen to the quiet, smell air clean enough to eat, and try to count a million stars. Mike & Judy Rainy, the hosts at Ol Kanjau, have worked as ecologists in Kenya since 1968 and they are still active in large-scale ecosystem research to see how Amboseli wildlife interacts with Maasai people and their livestock.
The pace at Ol Kanjau is unhurried but directed at providing guests with direct access to traditional and natural Africa, well away from most things modern, including masses of other tourists.
The light structure of this traditional tented safari camp maintains the most direct contact with the natural world possible. It reminds us that the natural world is too often diminished by the permanent structures that people now build everywhere.
Too often, permanent boutique lodges and camps seem grand and in inverse proportion to the amount and quality of wildlife that remains nearby. In Maasai, Ol Kanjau means Elephants. The greater Amboseli region is home to a growing population of elephants and the Rainys will introduce you to several of the 52 known matriarchal elephant families.
Ol Kanjau Tented Safari Camp offers six spacious tents, with large, comfortable beds. The tents include safari-style bathrooms with bucket showers and hot water. Gas lanterns light your tent at night.
