WHERE TO STAY IN CHYULU HILLS PARK
While most parks have high-end Tier 1, mid-range Tier 2 and value Tier 3 accommodations, only Safari Tier 1 accommodations are available at Chyulu Hills National Park. An exclusive location such as Chyulu Hills demands an exceptional accommodation. We highly recommend the unsurpassed experience of the Tier 1 luxury camps at private conservancies bordering Chyulu Hills National Park – These are Campi Ya Kanzi in the southern end near Tsavo West and Ol Donyo Lodge in the western portion bordering the park in the Amboseli eco-system.
A portion of your rooming fees helps with conservation efforts in the park. These camps will have you feeling like Ernest Hemingway and other famous explorers that have visited the area. Maasai-co-owned and managed Campi Ya Kanzi sits at the base of the Chyulu Hills on 280,000 acres that are owned by the tribe. The private Kanzi House, six tented cottages, and two tented suites allow for a maximum of 16 guests at the camp, giving you an unrivaled vacation in Kenya.
The rustic, yet elegant, design of the camp embraces you with the authenticity of bush wildlife and cultural safaris, yet all of the necessary conveniences are close at hand. In addition to your game drives, we recommend the Campi Ya Kanzi village walks, photography and bird watching safaris, horse-riding, astronomy discourses, bush dining and many other activities offered by the camp staff.
Ol Donyo Lodge is a favorite among the most seasoned and discerning AfricanMecca travelers to Kenya. This boutique lodge is situated in the Mbirikani Group Ranch on 275,000 acres in the foothills of the Chyulu Hills. As an upmarket, premier accommodation, the lodge represents the utmost flexibility, as your activities are tailored to your desires and schedule.
The nights are especially magical at Ol Donyo as candlelight fills the air with a warm glow, and you gaze at the night skies from your personal "star bed" on a private rooftop terrace. The lodge has a special hide for wildlife viewing, and other activities include horseback safaris, mountain biking, visits to nearby community villages and game drives (read more on when is the best time to go to Chyulu Park). One of the most interesting activities offered at Ol Donyo Lodge is a bush tracking session with a Maasai guide.

Jambo Raza, I think I speak for both of us when I say that this was one of the best trips of our lives. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable -- Steven, in Amboseli, was particularly outstanding.

On behalf of myself, my wife and my two adult daughters, I want to sincerely thank you and AfricanMecca Safaris for our fabulous recent safari to Amboseli National Park and Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.

Jambo Altaf, Many thanks for a brilliant holiday. Your choice of tented accommodation at the two Tsavos and Amboseli was superb, we didn't have a favourite. We would recommend AfricanMecca to anyone.
Geoffrey Topliss - Northampton, United Kingdom
The animals at Amboseli were amazing. We saw live wildebeest births, a pack of hyenas looking for a kill. Thank you to AfricanMecca for helping us plan the trip/honeymoon of a lifetime!

Our trip was outstanding. Amboseli National Park was one of our favorite places. There was a diversity of landscape, with marsh area as well as bush country. We saw numerous elephants close up.

BEST TIME TO VISIT CHYULU HILLS
Wildlife behavior in Chyulu is significantly influenced by the abundance or scarcity of water thus tracking fauna is easier during the dry season as watering holes are more crowded than during the rains.
