STARS OF AFRICA

EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCES

RIDING SAFARIS

For horseback riding enthusiasts, East Africa is classic safari country; one of the world’s prime destinations for horseback adventures – merging world-class guides with stunning wilderness camps, and, naturally, the chance to catch glimpses of Africa’s iconic mega fauna, from the saddle.

 

Here, in unchartered territory, you will be forging your own path through the landscape, tuned into the rhythm of, not only your horse, but also the wilderness around – truly a magnificent way to experience Kenya’s diverse scenery and its awe-inspiring natural world.

 

The thunder of hooves and the heavy breathing of a sturdy horse cantering across the African savannah is one of life’s most remarkable moments. On a horseback safari, you will be on one of the absolutely best breed of horses, well-trained to handle vastly contrasting scenarios, depending on the terrain, the wildlife, and on the experience of the rider.  
 

Enjoy one of the most unique and exciting horseback riding adventures in the world.

HELICOPTER SAFARIS

Flying in a helicopter over Africa is a humbling experience as the vastness of the land stretches below and all around you, and the drama and excitement of the iconic African wildlife unfold – an extraordinary opportunity to explore some of the world’s greatest natural wonders, allowing access to areas barely touched by man. A helicopter safari is a highly private and flexible journey into Africa that offers unparalleled access to a variety of unique habitats and wildlife.

 

Your journey by helicopter will take you to inaccessible areas that would otherwise be impossible to visit. Exploring African wildlife, its mountains, lakes, deserts, deltas and forests, with pilots cum guides who always follow the most scenic routes, touching down at some remarkable locations, is a unique and most exclusive safari experience.

 

Enjoy bespoke helicopter safaris for periods ranging from a few days up to a couple of weeks; from a few hours to simple scenic transfers between safari camps and lodges in Kenya and Botswana.

OUT OF AFRICA

“Up in this air you breathed easily, drawing in a vital assurance and lightness of heart. In the highlands you woke up in the morning and thought: Here I am, where I ought to be.”
~ Karen Blixen

 

The year 2016, marks 30 years since Meryl Streep and Robert Redford starred together in Sydney Pollack’s 1985 masterpiece, Out of Africa, the Academy Award-winning movie that used the natural beauty of Kenya as a backdrop for an epic love story, based on Karen Blixen’s bestseller. In many cases, Out of Africa was filmed at the very locations where the real events actually took place; it is still possible to visit some of them today.

 

The movie, Out of Africa, is based on the life of Karen Blixen, a Danish noblewoman who spent a great part of her life running a coffee plantation in Kenya, and on her love affair with the aristocratic big-game hunter Denys Finch Hatton. The film went on to win seven Oscars when it was released on December 18, 1985 and inspired and awoke a desire in many to experience a true Kenyan safari.
