A Luxury Safari

When you go on safari with Mark, he sweats every detail, so you don't have to. From the locations to the lodging, down the what type of vehicles will be used.

Ole Sereni Hotel - Nairobi

With the stunning greens and golds of Nairobi National Park’s landscape punctuated by giraffe, zebra, antelope and buffalo lounging near the hotel's waterhole, the views alone make Ole-Sereni one-of-a-kind. Add to that the convenience of the location, between Nairobi’s international and regional airports, and the world-class restaurants, conferencing facilities and spa, and you get a hotel that perfectly complements the experience of East Africa.

Sarova Lion Hill - Lake Nakuru

Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge is nestled along the Lion Hill overlooking the spectacular flamingo pink rimmed Lake Nakuru. Its location affords panoramic views of the lake and the picturesque Lake Nakuru National Park. A short two-hour drive from Nairobi, Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge is a favorite with residents and visitors to Kenya.

Samburu Intrepids - Samburu

Samburu Intrepids is a lush oasis on the banks of the great Uaso Nyiro River in Samburu Game Reserve. The tented luxury camp is a delight to be in – deliciously cooled by the river breeze and the forest. The camp sits on raised decks overlooking the brown river where the elephants sometimes make an appearance or the crocodiles come out to lounge by the river's banks.

Kichwa Tembo - Masai Mara

Located where the riverine forest meets the sweeping plains in the path of the awe-inspiring Great Migration, the camp provides an authentic dose of African wildlife, delivered with legendary Kenyan hospitality. Enhancing its signature elements of romance and nostalgia, the camp has been redesigned to better showcase its panoramic Masai Mara views. With timeless interiors that are simple yet contemporary and stylish, the new Kichwa Tembo enhances guests’ sense of privacy and enjoyment.
