The name ‘Kipalo’ means ‘the place to return to again and again’ in the local Taita language, taken from the ancient elephant rubbings on the rock and baobab trees surrounding the Lodge. H12 Kipalo Hills is a comfortable camp with delicious, fresh innovative cuisine and eight double mobile tents with en-suite flushing loo and traditional safari showers. High on a rocky plateau lies the spacious, airy lounge and swimming pool – a welcome treat for guests in the dry heat. The waterhole below the camp attracts a range of wildlife including elephants, buffalo and leopards which can be spotted as they descend on the area for an early morning drink.
H12 Kipalo Hills enjoys easy access to both Tsavo West and East National Parks for game drives, renowned for the largest population of elephant in Kenya. The Tsavo area is also a bird haven and every room comes with a complete bird list. Fly-camping down on the Galana and Tsavo Rivers are exciting opportunity to sleep out under the stars for a night or more. The joint area of these national parks form one of the largest and most diverse National parks in the world, making up 4% of Kenya’s land area, the size of Israel.
This wilderness features extreme diversity of landscape, from fields of baobabs to huge rocky kopjes framed against vast blue skies. The Yatta Plateau and its lashes of lava flows stretch 300km to the ends of Tsavo, and is the longest lava flow in the world. Tsavo is a vast untapped arena of arid bush, split by the azure and emerald meandering Galana and Tsavo Rivers, a water-haven and lifeline to the resident wildlife. Beyond the stunning landscape and wildlife, Tsavo is rife with a fascinating history – from its part in the First World War, to the first Railway, ‘The Lunatic Line’, and the famous Man-eaters of Tsavo.
