The real African experience

We offer several itineraries, and we can also assist you in planning other safari options. Our love and passion for Kenya is what drives us to show you the best that Kenya has to offer. Our most popular itineraries start at USD$850 per person per night with a minimum of 2 people, including accommodation, flights and activities

One of the best ways to experience Africa is to do it under canvas, and with our team of people and equipment, we can seek out the most beautiful untouched areas in Tsavo or the Mara. The camps we set up are for your exclusive use, with luxurious tents, en-suite bathrooms, flush toilets, bucket showers and a team of dedicated staff who ensure that the three-course meals and ice-cold drinks you enjoy are perfectly suited to your tastes.
