The most extraordinary Gorilla safari experience in Africa, only a handful of travelers are permitted to trek into the Volcanoes region to seek out habituated groups of Gorilla families. We spend an idyllic hour with these majestic creatures, silently observing their habits, watching the impressive Silverback Gorillas teach and play with their young. Aside from over a thousand plant species, 700 bird species and myriad reptiles and amphibians, Rwanda is home to some 15 species of primates.

Luxury safari lodge


Soar over the Great Rift Valley's storied landscapes and touch down at our Private airstrip in the Masai Mara - the world's most game-filled region with phenomenal Big Cat encounters. We host your stay in the luxurious setting of our private camps in the Mara-Serengeti wilderness.

Widespread and plentiful
game viewing is what the Mara is all about. Unlike the highly seasonal locations in the Serengeti and Grumeti reserves, our locations in the Mara are abundant with year-round game and incredible Big Cat sightings. Diverse species of antelope congregate around the remaining permanent waterholes in our private game areas as we trace the path of resident Lion prides out on their early morning hunt.
In the season of the Great Migration,  constant river crossings provide exceptional predator action from the crocodiles and lions shadowing the herds. In the dry season, clear morning skies with stunning sunrises offer a beautiful start to the first game drive of the day. Soar by hot air balloon over the iconic setting of the Mara and return to camp to enjoy a champagne breakfast at one of Africa’s most beautiful luxury camps, a haven of peace and tranquility in a private concession.

While lions are the undisputed kings among Africa's predators, for many years we've followed the Cheetahs in our special Mara location where the presence of fewer people gives them the freedom of space to hunt during the daytime
 are the most specialized of  Africa’s Big Cats. The fastest animal on earth, they run at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. The cubs follow Cheetah moms from the age of six weeks. In the Serengeti plains, up to 95% of cubs fail to reach maturity due the threat of lions, hyena and, the result of too many of crowds. Here in the Mara, with special conservancies we're seeing more productive sightings of these unique cats.
The cheetah cubs leave their mothers at about a year or two, and the brothers form a band for extremely organized hunting. These cats require vast savannah grasslands and daylight to hunt, a perfect habitat offered by the Mara ecosystem well-suited to Cheetah, which is what makes them harder to source in the thicker woodlands and constricted spaces of South Africa and Botswana.
