Around Amani Forest Camp

The camp is known locally as Emau Hill which is the name of the hill on which the camp stands.  Emau Hill’s lush green grounds are on the border of the pristine rain forest of the Amani Nature Reserve and offer excellent views of the forest.

Wander around the camp, and relax in our forest seats, bar or your chosen spot. Some games can be found in the Restaurant as well as a wide range of novels and literature.  Wherever you decide to settle, drinks can be brought to you throughout the day by our friendly staff.

Just walking around the camp, and the surrounding fields you can see many species of birds, several endemic to the area.   We have compiled a bird checklist with the help of visiting ornithologists and you will find this at the Reception.  When you go for a stroll around, you can take this with you and see how many you can spot – and if you can add to the list!

All around the camp birds, frogs and chameleons can be found in abundance, and those with an interest need not even leave the comfort of their Cottages and/or Tented Accommodation or  even the bar area to spot some wonderful wildlife.  The surrounding area is home to a wide variety of bird species, some of which are endemic to Amani ( for example the Amani Sunbird and Amani Tailorbird, and the peculiar and beautiful endemic chameleons and tree frogs.

Hiking is the most popular activity here, as the forest offers many trails through beautiful untouched habitat. Our friendly staff at the camp will be happy to provide information about hikes and trails on request.
