Perched on the side of the Mbulia Hills, Kipalo Hills enjoys fantastic views looking out across the 12,000 acre Mbulia Conservancy with Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance. Its position allows easy access to both Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks – incredible wildernesses which, together, are 15 times the size of the Maasai Mara.

A comfortable camp where imaginative cuisine accompanies eight luxurious double tents, Kipalo Hills was built so that the local community would see the benefit of protecting resident wildlife – especially elephants. It was also built to best take advantage of those beautiful, expansive views across the plains.
