At a glance

Experience the wonderfully varied landscapes, rich culture and iconic wildlife of Kenya on this luxury nine-night safari, staying at The Safari Collection’s beautifully stylish yet sustainable lodges.

Begin with a stay in Nairobi at the city’s most famous hotel, Giraffe Manor. Though looking more like a Scottish country house than something you would expect to find in Africa, the graceful giraffes poking their heads through the windows for a feed at breakfast will remind you where you are.

From here, fly north to Solio Lodge, an exquisite (and the only) lodge set in a vast 45,000-acre reserve backed by views of Mount Kenya. Activities here include horse riding, walking, mountain-biking, night and day game drives and fishing. Home to the most successful private rhino breeding reserve in Kenya, Solio Private Reserve is also perhaps the best places in Africa to spot rhinoceros, and sightings of up to 40 individuals are not uncommon.

Next up is the striking Sasaab Lodge in the Samburu region. While the wealth of game here is reason enough to visit, it’s the lodge’s relationship with the local Samburu people – who are Sasaab’s landlords – which really sets it apart. So, as well as game drives, wilderness fly camping and star gazing, you’ll get to explore the scrubland with the Samburu on walks, camel rides and intimate village visits.

End with three nights in a remote corner of the Maasai Mara at Sala’s Camp. There are few better places to be between June and September when the legendary migration of wildebeest pass through, and this region sees incredibly prolific wildlife year-round.

The Safari Collection makes a meaningful contribution to the conservation of Kenya’s wildlife and traditional cultures through pioneering sustainable environmental practices and employing local Kenyans. They also pay particular attention to Kenya’s big cats, supporting to projects that address the primary causes of their decline and help the needs of the surrounding communities who live side by side with them.
