Shu’Mata Camp

Situated directly under the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, this luxurious and rugged retreat is one of the best ways to experience the allure of Africa. A permanent camp comprised of a handful of Hemingway style tents, the installation is situated on a hill in the Masai tribal lands in Amboselli National Park. A stunning landscape of contrasts and stark beauty, the tents were designed and positioned to capture it all with 360 degree views of the savannah and Kilimanjaro. Positioned in a line along the ridge, there are a total of seven tents that form the unique and adventurous compound.  A great homage to the legendary 1920s safari spirit, this is a passionate venture that incorporates the design talents of local artists and villagers and was inspired by the history and the owners’ love of Africa. Each of the seven tents is self contained and include a shower, toilet, basin and private veranda with room for four. With a sophisticated approach to a traditional safari camp, the interiors and decor have all been designed as a tribute to the bygone era and are chic and colorful.The kitchen serves freshly prepared international cuisine at an elegant dining table or on the terrace with panoramic views of Kilimanjaro.
