Bush Homes of character, featured in Kenya 
Of the many styles of safari, discerning travelers are increasingly opting for a trip which includes staying at small "bush homes of character". Such venues include permanent luxury tented camps, private ranches, small family-run lodges and grand private homes. Arguably the best destination for such a safari is Kenya where we have a selection of fine establishments available. Enjoy personalized arrangements, daily flexibility, cordial hosts, expert guides, an attentive staff, varied activities (game-viewing drives in open-topped four-wheel drives, night drives with a spotlight, adrenalin-pumping encounters with big game on bush walks, game-tracking and learning bushcraft, horse-back riding, walking & riding with camels, observing wildlife from game 'hides', boating on rivers and lakes, swimming in natural rock pools, impromptu bush breakfasts, fabulous picnics and sundowner cocktails atop vantage points, etc.), excellent cuisine with fine wines, comfortable accommodations and light aircraft charter flights between destinations.

Andrew Harper "nothing compares to a safari"
Now approaching it's 30-year anniversary, Andrew Harper's legendary "Hideaway Report" is a connoisseur's worldwide guide to peaceful and unspoiled places. Hideaway Report has featured an introductory safari guide to Kenya & Tanzania. In his opening remarks, Andrew Harper states: " Your editor has traveled the world many times over, but for me nothing quite compares to the exhilaration of an East African safari. It still represents one of life's last great adventures." Sublime praise indeed from the high priest of discerning travelers.

Ol Kanjau - Place of the Elephants
American naturalists Mike and Judy Rainy have studied East Africa's savanna wildlife for 25 years and, for a privileged few, they offer a unique private tented camp experience in Amboseli.... unique in that the Rainy's knowledge of wild animal behavioral ecology is linked to the cultural ecology of the resident Masai. Mike Rainy speaks fluent Maa, thus providing the opportunity for you to interact and communicate with the Masai in a way that is seldom experienced by visitors to Kenya. The camp at Ol Kanjau (meaning Place of the Elephants ) is set up in a secluded setting on the Ol Kanjau Group Ranch just south-east of Amboseli National Park itself. The camp’s position just outside the park allows you to experience escorted bush walks as well as game-viewing drives in and around the park in four-wheel drive passenger vehicles. Outside the park, you don't have to stay on the roads and so large elephant herds can be approached to within just a few feet! Enjoy spacious tents with private bathrooms, hot showers, iced cocktails around the roaring log fire and delicious home-cooked dinners prepared in a Dutch oven in the embers.

Amboseli is the place where wildlife researcher Cynthia Moss and her colleagues have been conducting the extensive Amboseli Elephant Research Project for more than 20 years now. She and her elephants have been the feature of several television documentaries and her books such as Portraits in the Wild are world-renowned. The Rainys are former associates and old friends of Cynthia Moss and as such, they can take you to visit the ongoing project and to enjoy a very informative and privileged elephant experience. Amboseli is home to a growing population of elephant and the Rainys will introduce you to several of the 52 known matriarchal elephant families found here. In fact, being hosted and guided by the Rainys in Amboseli adds considerably to your safari experience in the famous park lying at the foot of towering Mount Kilimanjaro. Their friendship with research teams and their detailed knowledge of the wildlife and animal behavior gives you a unique feeling that here, on the beautiful African plains, you are somehow part of a National Geographic Special!
