Hemingway's Camp is, in essence, a semi-permanent version of Kirurumu’s Mobile Classic Camping with a few added extras and frills that are easily afforded by a semi permanent camp. The camp is set in under the spreading branches of Acacia tortillis nestled near a volcanic cone which affords superb sundowners and good views. The camp borders the Amboseli National Park and is part of the Amboseli eco-system. Views of Kilimanjaro all the way to Kilimanjaro’s summit are superb and resident game is very good. The ability to walk, night game drive and see Maasai in their natural surroundings makes this a very special place indeed. Fly camping away from camp is also entirely possible.West Kilimanjaro camp is therefore an ideal start or end to a northern circuit safari, there are easy charter options that can be combined with many other places too.
Hemingway’s Camp Kirurumu is located in West Kilimanjaro. The camp is well situated: 3 hours from Arusha, 2 hours from Kilimanjaro International Airport, 1 hour from West Kilimanjaro airstrip (for charters), and 1 ½ hours from Londorossi gate (Kilimanjaro climb)
The tented accommodation is luxuriously comfortable and spacious with en-suite bathrooms and is, naturally, fully and tastefully furnished.
