"When planning a first-time safari people often want to hit the highlights, but there is something to be said for getting away from the tourist circuit. Don’t be afraid to push your boundaries and try a night of “fly” camping (not actually with flies). Even though it might be out of your comfort zone, it will be the best memory you take home."
—Christine Tucker, Experience Designer
Dramatic landscapes & mighty wildlife
Culture, history and creatures both big and small roam unfettered and wild in Kenya. From exclusive conservation areas to the legendary Maasai Mara, you'll follow untouched elephant routes, mingle with local communities and come up close as giraffes, zebras and elephants saunter about their natural habitat. Take a mobile camp journey into the Kenyan savannah—the original home of safari—or tuck into a private villa with stunning views over equatorial mountains. We leave the 4x4s behind and set out on foot so you can truly lose yourself in the wilds, where your porters and a charismatic group of camels are the only traffic in sight.
Discover the possibilities:
Kenya Culture & Safari
Settle in at some of Kenya's most incredible luxe wilderness camps, letting your mind and body recuperate. We’ll introduce you to the country’s highlights and offer lessons on each region’s unique wildlife, people and culture. Learn about Kenya’s role as a driving force in anti-poaching efforts across the continent and how locales like Laikipia and the Maasai Mara blend tourism with community development and wildlife conservation. Kenya’s wildlife-peppered savannahs and proud communities are ripe for discovery via daily hikes, horseback rides and mountain biking. You'll leave understanding that Kenya is far more than endless savannah.
Singular Stays: A Private Kenyan Retreat
Unpack (only once) and settle into a private homestead, infused with character and local charm. Split your days between life-altering animal encounters and restorative poolside dips. Find shelter from the midday heat with a massage at the lodge as giraffes graze the trees just outside your window. Join East Africa's leading conservationist for an immersive walking safari, spend the evening with the anti-poaching patrol or go for a mountain bike ride or trail run on the conservancy with the local Maasai.
Kenya Walking Safari
Answer the call of the wild on this exciting mobile camp journey into Kenya's remote wilderness. Escape the constraints of a vehicle and set out on foot—a caravan of friendly camels carries your spacious canvas tents between sites, keeping you far from the typical safari circuit (meaning you'll have the place all to yourselves). Gain a front-row seat to the Great Migration, explore the savanna on foot with your private Maasai guide and rub elbows with the densest population of predators in Kenya. The daily game drives, incredible hiking trails and unmatched luxury mobile camp locales are life-changing.
Kenya & Tanzania
Walk amongst the giants of Africa as you explore two of its most enticing countries on this in-depth journey. Visiting both of the continent’s best-known reserves, the Maasai Mara and the Serengeti, you will witness some of the most captivating wildlife in the world. From unforgettable savannah sunsets to the thrill of the Great Migration, experience the contrast of pure serenity and wild adventure as you spend your days seeking out lions and elephants and your evenings with sundowners at your safari camp.
