Shompole Wilderness Camp
Shompole Conservancy, Kenya


Shompole Wilderness Camp is family owned and managed by Johann and Sam du Toit with their two children and located in the south-western part of Kenya close to the Tanzanian border, directly in between the Masai Mara National Reserve and Amboseli National Park. Magadi is the closest town. Set in the heart of Southern Maasai land, Shompole is hot and dry, but curiously filled with a wide diversity of birds, reptiles and large mammals. The Ewaso Ng’iro river brings water from the Mau highlands to feed the wildlife, people and their livestock who coexist together here.

Shompole Wilderness Camp is set on the banks of the Ewaso Ng’iro River with beautiful views of the Nguruman Escarpment and the Loita Hills. We can access over 250,000 acres of Maasai land, much of this being the Shompole and Olkiramaitan Community Conservancies, and within this there are open acacia savannahs, fig trees forests, riverine fig woodland, the Shompole swamp and of course Lake Magadi and Lake Natron.

The Camp has been designed in keeping with its beautiful surroundings offering total privacy made up of 6 tented rooms on raised wooden platforms, with en-suite bathrooms and verandas where guests can relax and enjoy views. Home-cooked yummy meals will be taken in different settings throughout guest stays be it under the stars, by the river or out and about for example at the Hide. 


Shompole Wilderness Camp is a charming camp, offering all essential comforts, suited to families, couples and smaller groups, also particularly interesting for avid photographers and can also be taken on an exclusive basis. Johann and Sam and their team, will host guests in this fascinating and diverse area, ensuring all guests leave a little bit of their heart here, taking away wonderful memories and a desire to return as soon as possible.
