Shompole Wilderness

We are currently redoing our website. We hope to have it ready in a day or two.

Shompole Wilderness

One of the very few EXCLUSIVE-USE tented camps in Kenya

Shompole Wilderness is a small private tented camp set in the Shompole Conservancy, deep in Kenya’s Southern part of the Great Rift Valley, in between Amboseli National Park and the famous Maasai Mara National Reserve.

We offer both total privacy and great comfort in a unique location and welcome you to join us at our home a place we love, cherish and help protect. 

Nestled under the giant fig trees on the banks of the Ewaso Ngiro River, this small, homely and family run and managed tented camp is one of the few places in Africa where you can swim in the river, go tubing and kayaking, do a spot of fishing and relax while you are on safari.

that combines wildlife sightings in the Great Rift Valley with the stunning pink, red, green and yellow colours of Lake Magadi and Lake Natron, both Lesser and Greater flamingoes and a welcoming Maasai community.

This area offers you the opportunity to stay a few nights amongst the traditional Maasai people, at the bottom of the longest valley in the world – the Great Rift Valley, float down the river tubes, see an authentic Maasai village, photograph some of the 450+ birds species or go and see the endangered Greater and Lesser flamingos. 

Our camp gives you the opportunity to experience an authentic African safari experience in our home: a place we love, cherish, and help protect.
