Kenya

Kenya is East Africa’s foremost safari destination, boasting no less than 60 national parks and game reserves. Here you’ll find the famed Maasai Mara, running contiguous with the Serengeti on the other side of the Tanzanian border. It is known not just for the presence of the Big Five, but also the annual Great Wildebeest Migration that sees up to 1.5 million animals crossing the Mara River in search of fresh pasture.

Fifteen times larger, Tsavo is recognised as one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots thanks to its sheer diversity of species. Divided into the semi-desert savannah of East Tsavo and swampier West Tsavo, it is bordered by the Chyulu Hills, the backdrop to the Oscar-winning Out of Africa. Elsewhere, Amboseli is known for its large elephant herds and views towards the snowdrifts of Mount Kilimanjaro.

In addition, Kenya lays claim to an increasing number of privately-owned and operated wildlife conservancies, that see individuals setting aside large tracts of land for the country’s most feted species while ensuring a long term livelihood for the region’s human population. They offer an altogether more bespoke safari experience than the national parks they border, and now offer safe sanctuary to more than half of Kenya’s wildlife, making the likes of Laikipia, Ol Pejeta and Rukinga destinations not to be missed.

POPULAR AREAS TO VISIT

Tours

Adventure Camping

Adventure camping requires participation. Your guide and assistant do all the meal preparation, however, we ask guests to help (on rotation) with the washing up.  You will also need to assist with putting up your tent and packing the vehicle.  There are some long travel days which means early morning starts, so we all need to get involved to make the day run efficiently.

Fully Assisted Camping (non en-suite)

Fully Assisted Camping (non-ensuite) means you will not have to lift a finger as we take care of all camping chores: cooking, cleaning, pitching and packing tents.  You have a 3-man crew of experienced safari staff (including a cook) who are dedicated to making your trip memorable and rewarding.

General

Hosted Safaris

We offer a couple of safaris each year that are hosted by either Claire and Tracy, along with highly qualified local guides.  Both Claire and Tracy have tremendous experience in Africa, collectively spending between 2 and 3 months on the continent.

Lodges and Tented Camps

Safari lodges are fully permanent accommodation built out of stone, wood, thatch, bricks, mortar or a combination of all.  Tented Camps are generally considered the best for a true safari experience. All lodges and tented camps feature real beds and private, en-suite bathroom facilities.
