East Africa
An incredible luxury safari
 through Kenya and Rwanda. Experience Masai Mara in the most exclusive way than ever before, enjoy seasonal opportunities to capture the grand river crossing of the Great Migration herds, explore the game-rich valleys of Mount Kenya and head onward to the Virungas to spend time with primates, in particular the Mountain Gorillas. A perfect journey for photographers and wildlife enthusiasts who desire a genuinely personalized, hands-on safari experience focused on prime game viewing in our most exclusive wildlife locations, far from it all.
This is the true explorer’s adventure, for a truly private taste of East Africa. Some days you are lulled to sleep with the ancient hum of Africa's oldest rainforest outside your villa; on other days, you’ll wake up in a beautiful Tree Lodge to a clear view of snow-capped Mount Kenya. The most scenic journey across East Africa with plentiful wildlife, unique primates and, for those keen on rare species, exceptional birding.


Journey to Africa’s oldest park in Rwanda, home to some of the world’s last remaining Mountain Gorillas. Guided Gorilla treks with Professional Rangers take you through afromontane forests dazzling with endemic birds such as the Rwenzori double-collared sunbird, old-world Golden Monkey, antelope and the rarest orchids.

This experience of a lifetime
 includes 2 days of Gorilla trekking permits. Your treks will take you through pristine rainforest trails at Volcanoes National Park with majestic trees, birdlife and rare butterflies. Our Rwandan rangers offer an engaging, interpretive experience with the Gorilla group you encounter on your journey, sharing their family stories and individual quirks.
Guided Safaris® host you at the most beautiful lodge in all of Africa; luxurious eagle's nest suites tucked into the hillside with an authentic element of the natural rainforest environment all around you. Your luxury suites are raised high above framing impressive views of the Volcanoes peaks right from your balcony.

The Virungas massif is a staggeringly beautiful rainforest home to half the population of the world’s Mountain Gorillas, with the most exclusive treks to find them.
Further afield
 for the truly intrepid, we can tailor in a scenic fly-in safari by private helicopter to the Jurassic-feel Nyungwe Forest with 14 primate species including Chimpanzee. Nyungwe's extensive birding and primate trails wind over giant ferns and waterfalls, led by our expert Ornithology guides in Rwanda.
Further explorations also venture out to Akagera to seek tree-climbing Lions, Elephants, Specialized antelope such as the elusive Sitatunga - and incredibly rare species such as Shoebill, Grey-backed fiscal & Pintailed Whydah in the diverse Lake Rwanyakazinga ecosystem. Unique primates such as Silver monkey are also found here.


Discover Hemingway and Finch Hatton's Africa with a drive through the mystic Ngong Hills landscape and visit Karen Blixen’s former coffee plantation. Enjoy up-close interaction with Giraffe & lend your support to baby Elephants.

In the shadows of Mount Kenya,
 we fly you across the scenic Great Rift Valley to our private airstrip in an exclusive 50,000-acre reserve. In addition to Big Cats and Elephants, you can trek for endangered Patas monkeys, 40% of the world's remaining Grevy's Zebra, Black Rhino & Reticulated Giraffe.  The central highlands and great lakes of Kenya offer an opportunity to seek astoundingly diverse species, with phenomenal birding, along the Rift Valley. Walking with Samburu trackers opens a fascinating world to this nomadic culture - learning to read the bush imprints, their approach to seeking wildlife, identifying species: all a pretty special and intimate experience in the time you share here.
With scenic air charters, our guests can embark on specialized excursions, flying over soda lakes with millions of Pink Flamingo, spot Black Rhino strutting along the shores and take in the stunning aerial scenery of Mount Kenya. On short walks through mystic forests, we pause for gourmet picnics at the base of idyllic waterfalls. On this specialized journey, it’s not just about the game you’ll see, checking off the lists as you drive along: Your Private Guide will help engage you in the quieter interactions and unique play of the wildlife for an immersive experience of the bush.

Journeys of a Lifetime

Our specialized Guided Safaris® Journeys of a Lifetime concepts offer an extraordinary wilderness escape, always deeply rooted in sustainability, where the unspoiled African landscape embraces you within your own private sanctuary. Here in Kenya, our unique Bird's Nest star bed experience offers you exclusive seclusion with unbridled views of the sprawling wild.

An eagle's nest sleep out
Nestled between Mount Kenya to the east and the Great Rift Valley to the west our Star Bed villa is immensely fun: The nest is lit up with lanterns and turned down with a Champagne sleep out  - or hot cocoa, if you prefer. Marvel at the unforgettable orchestra of the African wilderness at dusk. In the morning, cozy up to breakfast in bed while watching elephant, giraffe and other wildlife at the river. A special Guided Safaris® By Request experience. Inquire for details.
Ancient culture

The Last Nomad Warriors

One of the last remaining areas where ancient Samburu and Maasai cultures retain any stronghold in their native land as guardians of precious wildlife. This journey offers an ethical immersion with the Kenyan tribespeople who are the true custodians of this land, and indeed, the actual shareholders in the regions you visit. In a vast reserve, we place a small footprint. Every visit lends a direct hand to safeguarding these old migratory corridors.

This partnership with the local Maasai community in Masai Mara and the Samburu tribespeople in Laikipia, opens a unique experience to our guests to track and walk alongside Kenya's last warrior cultures.
