KIGIO WILDLIFE CAMP
Kigio Wildlife Camp is a superb all-suite
camp surrounded by a beautiful Yellow-fever tree woodland overlooking
the Malewa River. The camp is constructed in an environmentally
friendly way from sustainable pine-wood,
local earth from the conservancy, traditional
thatch provided by the
surrounding community and canvas panels - there has been minimal usage
of cement and steel and the environment has been carefully preserved
during its construction. Power is provided by solar panels.
Accommodation is in eleven spacious suites (each 72 sq mt) and one
2-bedroom family suite, each built on deck and containing a large
bedroom and sitting area, a private bathroom with flush loo, shower
and balcony. The dining area is situated in a glade overlooking a
towering red cliff that houses colonies of bee-eaters. A most
attractive bar sits between two tall fever trees facing the cliff
while dining decks are extended up to the river.
At night hippo and
buffalo visit the camp to feed on ground salts and vegetation, in the
morning zebra and giraffe wander through as more than 250 types of
birds sing away. Kigio Wildlife Camp not only offers some of the
highest standards of accommodation in the Rift valley lakes area but
also an immensely rewarding experience. Guests can partake in complimentary
nature walks with naturalists. Cycling is also available at an extra cost.
Optional 4x4 day and night game drives are equally rewarding with a chance to see
hunting hyenas, leopard, aardvark, aardwolf, caracal or spring hare.
Kigio is an oasis of charm and beauty and provides a welcome break
from the long transfers and constant game drives. Here you will
discover nature and community in a more intimate, gentle and engaging
We recommend a minimum of
2 nights stay to fully experience Kigio's magic.
* Kigio Wildlife Camp is
0.5km from its equally delightful neighbour, Malewa Wildlife Lodge.
Larger groups can easily be accommodated in both lodges while meals
can be taken at one of the lodges.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A
UNIQUE CONFERENCE, PARTY OR WEDDING VENUE?
On behalf of our Regional Management Team, I would like to take this
opportunity to sincerely thank you for taking good care of us at the
lodges during our meeting. The response I received from our
was overwhelming with praises for your wonderful staff both at Kigio
and Malewa. They were very impressed with the place, the space, the
animals and special compliments to the chefs. We thoroughly enjoyed
our conference and the manner in which the arrangements were done was
EXCELLENT! and to the letter.
