Kenya Luxury Safaris

Luxury Safaris Custom-Designed for You

Our experience in custom-designing safaris dates back to the early 1990’s in Kenya, when we played a founding role in developing and nurturing this new and exciting approach to your own safari. At that time we worked with private landowners in Kenya as they began opening up their properties, hosting small parties of visitors in their welcoming homes or luxury tented camps and arranging safaris with their own trusted guides.
 
With each unique destination oozing rich family history and offering the chance to experience Kenya more intimately, an entirely new, more meaningful safari model was created. Today many of these individual private homes and tented camps are hosted by owners, managers, and tribal members. Some are nestled close to national parks and reserves, some are on private land or leased from local tribes, and others are in one of the many extraordinary wildlife conservancies located throughout the bush. Others are even at the forefront of Kenya’s most successful wildlife conservation efforts.
 
Kenya has it all! Incredible and abundant wildlife, beautiful and varied landscapes, different microclimates, the infrastructure to fly in/out directly to properties or nearby airstrips, fabulous weather, magnificent sunrises and breath-taking sunsets, farm to table cuisine that is fresh, local and tasty, and above all, kind and warm-hearted African people with a genuine knack for hospitality.

Off the charts property portfolio and hosts

Your custom-designed safari offers the best of sustainable conservation tourism along with accommodations ranging from luxury tents to bungalows to private homes. We select  intimate and unique properties whose maximum capacities range from 6 to 16 travelers. Accommodations can be made for larger groups wanting to travel together. Travel builds community and connection through memorable shared experiences. Enjoy your meals with your host and other travelers from around the world, all of whom have come together to share this personalized way of travel. You have the ability to customize your experience on a daily basis. Whether you’re traveling solo, as a couple, or have organized your own group of family and friends, your journey will be tailored to suit your specific needs and preferences. And, if you prefer to travel privately with your friends or family, we can reserve properties exclusively.

Legendary wildlife up close and personal

These privately owned properties and wildlife conservancies allow many options of game viewing beyond the vehicle. You will have the opportunity to view the legendary wildlife on foot, horseback or even camel since these properties are located outside of the national parks and reserves. Wake up for an early-morning safari or bush breakfast, and commune with the animals while enjoying sundowners at dusk. See things from a different perspective during a night game drive, and enjoy sleeping under the stars in your sky beds at a few select properties. For many, these moments in the bush are powerful beyond words—an intimate, even primal, experience. 

Sustainable conservation tourism

Sustainable conservation tourism benefits Kenya and our planet because it empowers local families and indigenous tribes by creating jobs, supporting education, and protecting the country’s extraordinary wildlife. 
Each destination receives a nightly conservation fee per traveler. This fee allows the local community to benefit from tourism and gives them a vital role in the critically important conservation efforts that protect and nurture their country’s wildlife.
For the conscious-minded traveler, visiting these special safari destinations is both a privilege and an opportunity to observe amazing conservation practices and to view all the game one could ever dream of seeing.
