West Kilimanjaro is a remote wilderness area of 250 square kilometres in size.
The land is leased from the local Maasai and is a true wilderness area with open plains, acacia woodland and above all, spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Wildlife of West Kilimanjaro
Contiguous with the Amboseli National Park, in Kenya, this unspoilt area has good populations of elephant as well as species such as lesser kudu, gerenuk, bat-eared fox and striped hyena. As well as commitment to conservation and wildlife the concession works closely with the Maasai from whom the land is leased.
Local Maasai culture
The local community receives bed-night fees for all guests that stay in the concession and these, as well as annual lease payments and other support have provided funding for school classrooms and teachers houses.
A stay at West Kilimanjaro is as much about the community as it is about wildlife and a short stay will allow time spent with Maasai communities and an insight to their remarkable culture.
