The transition of Kitich Camp’s stewardship is a story of passion intertwined with conservation. Originally the vision of explorer Miles Burton, the camp was later acquired by Giulio Bertolli, whose namesake olive oil empire speaks to a legacy of quality and respect for natural heritage. Their custodianship embodies a profound respect for this land, ensuring its preservation and continuity.

Kitich Camp’s charm is further magnified by its contrasting setting. Unlike the more familiar expanses of the savannah, the camp is enshrouded by forest, providing guests with an alternate narrative to the typical safari. The availability of camel-assisted fly-camping enables intrepid visitors to delve deeper into the realms of the Matthews Range, offering an authentic journey back to nature’s basics.
