The Wildlife

The ancient African wildlife has always been a source of marvel and inspiration for visitors. It is unique in the world for its diversity and its numbers. Africa is the last continent where large herds of undisturbed mammals move freely and one of our missions is to help the local communities to protect them.

We are located in two regions of Kenya, Samburu in the North and the Masai Mara in the South. Different for climatic and geographical reasons, Samburu and the Masai Mara have also different wildlife.

The Masai Mara ecosystem has an astounding variety of wildlife and some of the highest densities of large mammal populations on earth. The natural spectacle of the Great Migration attracts remarkable numbers of predators and creates a year-round bustle of activity and action. “The Maras”, as it is known, is one of the natural wonders of the world.

The Samburu ecosystem is one of the most exciting in East Africa from a visual and emotional point of view. It is a remote, dry Africa that it is impossible to forget. It’s made of several national reserves, private ranches and communally-owned group ranches that are all interconnected. Famous for its large population of elephants and unique northern species of animals found only in this area of Kenya, Samburu stands out as a unique, wildlife-rich and diverse wilderness.

We approach the wildlife is a safe and responsible way, bringing our guests close to it but respecting it.

Our guides don’t simply look for animals in the savannah, they explain the context and they share their knowledge about behaviour, patterns, habits and their own experiences of co-existing with them. Our safaris are not “big five” safaris: we share with our guests much more than lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino – species that live in Samburu and the Masai Mara – we share also the endless other big and small species that make these ecosystems so special.

Our guests are normally surprised by the quantity and variety of wildlife that they encounter, a marvel that we want to conserve for future generations.
