Join us on an East African Safari to an ancient land born of ice and fire, which ranges from tropical heat to glacial ice, that has formed a diversity of habitats found nowhere else on Earth.
The most revered of Africa’s safari destinations, Kenya is located in East Africa and boasts the Masai Mara National Park, renowned for its abundant wildlife and annual Great Migration.
Nothing says “classic safari adventure” quite like a Kenyan safari adventure.
A Kenyan safari not only boasts spectacular natural beauty in one of the most unspoiled places on earth, but it also brings you up close and personal with Africa’s most sought-after wildlife.
Join us for an incredible life changing adventure through Kenya where the safari comes to life!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve have had a love for Africa. It was the animals that ran wild there that captured me first. Elephants are a love of mine, they are smart, they take of their families, and they remember everything. It wasn’t just the elephants, it was all the animals… lions, hippos, giraffes, zebras… Some of the most amazing animals run wild in Africa and I just had to go and see for myself these majestic creatures.
And let me tell you… it was transformational. Not just because of the animals I got to see, but also the people, the culture, the food and so much more. Dare I say… I found a little piece of myself in each day as I explored this incredible area of the world and I would like to invite you to come explore, experience and see it for yourself.
Let me tell you more…
Our journey will take us across Kenya. These safari lodges are built to bring you the marvels of Africa, the wonders of nature, exquisite cuisine and our undeniably refreshing hospitality.
Immerse yourself in a world of adventure at these amazing Safari destinations, each located in one of Kenya’s prime National Parks or Conservancies. Marvel at the sunrise across the savannah or gaze at the starry nights’ skies. Feel your heartbeat hasten as you watch the King of the jungle in all his majesty just footsteps away, venture to climb mountain like structures in community lands and explore the Masai and Samburu cultures as you connect to the absolute miracles of Mother Nature.
Dine Amongst Nature’s Wonders.
Kenyan food involves a heady concoction of spice, curries, maize, bananas, pineapples, potatoes, tomatoes and cucumbers along with the local produce. The Portuguese rule, the Indian workers, the Arab traders and the British colonial rule have contributed to this distinctive food blends with amazing spices made fresh and from the heart.
All of our hotels excel in the freshness and quality of product supported by the individual Lodge’s own vegetable and herb garden. The quality is exceptional, varied and welcoming after a day out on game drives.

EXPERIENCE SAFARI IN SAMBURU NATIONAL RESERVE
One of the famous Safari destinations in East Africa, Samburu National Reserve is located in Northern Kenya and is a premier game reserve situated on the banks of the Ewaso Ng’iro river. This vast expanse of remote pristine wilderness measures 165 square kilometers in area and borders the Ewaso Ng’iro River to the south, which separates it from the Buffalo Springs National Reserve.
Samburu Reserve is a unique wildlife conservation haven famous for an abundance of rare species of animals such as the Grevy Zebra, Somali Ostrich, Reticulated Giraffe, Gerenuk and the Beisa Oryx. The reserve is also home to a population of close to 900 Elephants.
Large predators such as the Lion, Leopard and Cheetah are an important attraction (Kamunyak the famous Lioness that adopted a baby Oryx is a resident in the reserve). Samburu is in fact one of the better locations in Kenya to spot leopards. Wild dog sightings are also a common attraction to this unique protected area and Birdlife is abundant with over 450 recorded species.
The Aberdare National Park is part of the Aberdare mountain range and got its name from Lord Aberdare, one of the founder members of the Royal Geographical Society. It is a fascinating region of Kenya and according to Kikuyu folklore they are one of the homes of Ngai (God). The scenery is very dramatic, mountain ranges soar to around 14,000 ft., giving way to deep V-shaped valleys with streams and rivers cascading over spectacular waterfalls.
The forest is the water source for the entire local area and Nairobi. At 10,000 ft. is a belt of Bamboo forest which is the favorite haunt of the rare and elusive Bongo, above this the Bamboo forest gives way to moorlands, reminiscent of European highlands, where the largest of the Antelope, the Eland, roam.
EXPERIENCE SAFARI IN OL PEJETA CONSERVANCY
Today, Ol Pejeta is the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, and home to two of the world’s last remaining northern white rhinos. It is the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees, in a sanctuary established to rehabilitate animals rescued from the black market. It has some of the highest predator densities in Kenya, and still manages a very successful livestock programme. Ol Pejeta also seeks to support the people living around its borders, to ensure wildlife conservation translates to better education, healthcare and infrastructure for the next generation of wildlife guardians.
EXPERIENCE SAFARI IN LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK
Drive via Nairobi to Lake Nakuru National Park. Small in size, but high in wildlife, this park makes the ideal day trip, enroute to other destinations and abounds in picturesque lookouts and picnic spots. As Kenya’s first and largest rhino sanctuary, sightings of both black and white rhino are almost guaranteed, while plentiful waterbuck, warthog, zebra, gazelle and buffalo graze the shoreline. Echoing the haunting cries of the numerous fish eagles, this is also the park in which you have the best chance of seeing a leopard.
EXPERIENCE SAFARI IN MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE
World renowned for the breathtaking spectacle of ‘the greatest wildlife show on earth’, the awe-inspiring annual migration of the wildebeest, the Mara is Kenya’s most visited protected area. Technically an extension of Tanzania’s renowned Serengeti National Park, the Mara constitutes only 4% of the entire Serengeti ecosystem but its rolling grasslands, meandering rivers and towering escarpments offer one of the world’s most rewarding and evocative wildlife arenas. It is perhaps the only region left in Kenya where the visitor may see animals in the same super-abundance as existed a century ago.
Every time we visit a reserve or conservancy, that money goes back to protecting the wildlife and the surrounding area for the future. Not just this one visit … but our whole itinerary; every reserve, conservancy, park we visit, we have a direct positive impact helping protect the wildlife and the lands they roam.
