Why Shu’mata Camp?

Set on a craggy hill at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro in the heart of the Maasai Steppe, Shu’Mata Camp is an intimate safari haven, offering awe-inspiring views of the south Amboseli savanna & Africa’s highest mountain.

Experience Shu’Mata means ‘heaven’ in the local Maa language - & aptly so – because it is so close to Kilimanjaro that on a clear night, guests might see details of its glaciers at the summit, which is the highest in all of Africa.

This luxurious tented camp is situated in a private concession that is home an abundance of wildlife like giraffe, wildebeest, eland & zebra as well as a variety of bird species. South Amboseli is also famed for its large herds of elephant.

Stay There are 7 Hemingway-style safari tents at Shu’Mata, all perched on top of a hill offering breathtaking views over Mount Kilimanjaro & the surrounding savanna.

Each luxury tent boasts an en-suite bathroom with open-air shower & a private veranda with open fire & safari chairs.

The communal tent features a lounge & dining area, a bar & a large terrace with gorgeous views.

Activities A wide range of exciting activities are available at Shu’Mata Camp.

These include open 4x4 game drives in the Greater Kilimanjaro & Amboseli region, night drives in search for nocturnal animals, walks with Maasai guides & climbing Mount Kili to the Shira Plateau at 4,000 meters in altitude.
