Facility Notes Campi ya Kanzi is located in the Chyulu Hills within the Kuku group ranch. The ranch is owned by the local Maasai people. The Chyulu Hills are a range of rolling volcano hills in Tsavo West area in Kenya. Chyulu Hills are a vital catchment area for Mzima Springs and the Tsavo and Galana Rivers. Some of the wildlife found in the region include large mammals such as elephants, buffalo, bushbucks, elands, leopards, reedbucks and giraffes along with various reptiles and insects. The famous Shetani Lava flows are also found within this region. Shetani Lava flows are a vast expanse of folded black lava spread over 50 sq km at the foot of the Chyulu Hills. The camp’s architectural design blends in with the natural surroundings where natural vegetation within the camp has been left undisturbed and the paths beautifully demarcated using locally available lava gravel. The property constitutes 8 tents, 1 luxury guest house with a total bed capacity of 16 guests.
Energy management Campi ya Kanzi runs on solar power. The facility has invested in a total of 120 solar panels directly connected to a grid and fixed with power inverter systems. The facility has a central water heating system which is solar and oven powered. The heating system uses a total 14 solar panels to power it. The oven acts as back up and is fueled using waste cartons. Energy usage in the camp is monitored directly from the inverters and consumption per guest is monitored using the sub-metered at every guest tent and analysis is done on a monthly basis. The camp uses Aga (energy efficient) stoves for cooking for guests and staff. The stoves are powered by briquettes made from coffee husks. The briquettes are supplied by Chardust Company. The facility also uses a charcoal fridge to store vegetables. The ridge is watered twice a day to keep it cool. The camp uses solar rechargeable torches.
Environmental management Campi ya Kanzi is guided by its environmental policy that emphasizes on dedication to the practice of sound environmental stewardship, promotion of health and safety of guests and employees as well as integration of all social and environmental concerns in their business operations.
As mandated by the law under Environmental Management and Co-ordination Act (EMCA 2015), the Camp has undertaken its annual self-Environmental Audit.
Chemical use The camp uses biodegradable bathroom amenities from Leleshwa Soaps for guests. Bensos laundry detergents and powders are used for washing in the laundry section while Henkel chemicals are used for the swimming pool. Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for the chemicals are available.
Conservation Criteria
Community Criteria
Solid waste management Solid waste at the camp is separated at source using clearly labelled bins. Further sorting is done at the waste holding area. Plastic and metallic waste is then taken to a recycling center at Mtito Andei. Waste tyres are given to the local Masai community to reuse as water troughs for their cattle while tetra packs are re-used to grow tree seedlings. Organic waste is composted in a two-chamber pit and later used as fertilizer in the garden.
As a waste reduction measure, the facility provides guests with water from refillable glass jars and branded aluminium drinking water bottles for use during game drives.
Water management Campi ya Kanzi is fully reliant on rain water harvesting. The water is collected in a water catchment of approximately 12,000 square metres. The water is then collected in special PVC bladders. The camp has the capacity to store approximately 1,600,000 litres of water. The facility monitors water consumption daily and has installed a meter at the main outlet as well as sub-meters in every tent. The usage is analysed per guest and total usage for the camp is analysed on a monthly basis. The camp has also put in place other measures to reduce water consumption such as drip irrigation, use of linen towels and towel talks for the option for guests to re-use their towel.
Visitor communication & education Visitors are briefed upon arrival on the camp’s operations and environmental values. The guest tents are equipped with room information folders to brief the visitors on environmental conservation and operations of Campi ya Kanzi and MWCT as well as the activities and biodiversity within conservancy and the grater Kuku Ranch. The camps are also furnished with books detailing the history of Tsavo area as well as painting showing the culture of the local communities. The guests are also educated on the local culture, geography and ecosystems during nature walks through the Chyulu Hills, and trips to the Shetani Lava area.
Pollution In an effort to reduce light pollution, the camp uses low light paraffin lanterns at night.
Environmental conservation Campi ya Kanzi engages actively in conservation and protection of natural ecosystems through the Maasai Wilderness conservation Trust. The trust has employed 117 rangers to patrol the conservancy and the greater Kuku Ranch. The camp seeks to alleviate human wildlife conflict and promote conservation in the Chyulu Hills area through compensation for livestock lost to wildlife conflict under the program Wildlife pays. Campi ya Kanzi has initiated a Simba Scouts Program for the local Maasai warriors. This initiative promotes local culture while the scouts help in wildlife tracking for data collection and monitoring within the conservancy. There have been over 20 Simba scouts to date. The camp also promotes environmental protection of grazing lands within the conservancy through employing a holistic approach to land management achieved through rotational grazing. Through partnership with the Zoological Society of London, the trust conducts species research in the conservancy. This partnership will facilitate data-sharing across the ecosystem and help to understand long-term trends of abundance and distribution of key wildlife species.
Guest at Campi ya kanzi also facilitate conservation by contributing a conservation fee of 101 USD per guest. 100 dollars from this amount goes directly into conservation programmes through the Trust while 1 dollar is reserved for carbon compensation through the Chyulu REDD+ Project.
Waste water management Grey and black water effluent from the guest tents and staff quarters is managed through a three chamber waste water treatment system that incorporates primary separation/ digestion of solids and aerobic filtration. The effluent after treatment is passed through a reed bed where the resultant water is used for drinking by wildlife.
Purchasing and supplies Vegetables and fruits are packed in reusable crates while meat and dairy products are stored in freezers. Where possible, dry goods are bought in bulk to reduce on the packaging. Some of the vegetables and fruits are picked from the camp’s garden.
Employment and remuneration/staff welfare Employees at Campi ya Kanzi are paid in line with the minimum wage. Basic Staff benefits at the camp include food, health insurance, uniform, entertainment, transport and accommodation. The employees have daily briefing meetings. The facility has a staff welfare committee that meets regularly to deal with staff issues with the management.
Staff education, communication and awareness training The staff at the camp have been trained on firefighting and First Aid. The facility also has notice boards fitted in strategic sections for facilitating communication. Sensitization and briefing for staff is also done on daily meetings via the heads of department.
Cultural preservation and promotion/protection of local sites Campi ya Kanzi promotes local culture through village visits by the guests to experience authentic local culture. Tents within the camp are named after the hills in the local language. Décor within the guest tents including paintings also depict the heritage of the local people.
Benefits to local community/community empowerment Campi ya Kanzi provides direct benefits to the surrounding community. A majority ( eighty percent) of the employees at the camp are drawn from the local community. Through the Maasai Wilderness Community Trust, the camp supports the community in various aspects related to conservation, health and education. The trust compensates the community for livestock lost through predation by wildlife.
