The Kenya Experience


December 5th ~ 11th, 2024


The Ultimate Safari Experience

This is the opportunity of a lifetime to experience two of Kenya’s most spectacular regions – Samburu and the Mara – in one combined experience with a retreat based on wellness and photography skills.
Discover the contrasts that divide these African areas – and the similarities that unite them – as you explore two worlds within one country. From the rugged beauty of northern Kenya to the vast sweeps of the Mara savannah, this journey will consistently surprise and delight. Just as the two regions are different, no two days on this safari are the same. 
We’ve designed this safari to bring you the very best of wild Kenya – the land where safari began, and which remains unsurpassed as a wildlife destination., in the ultimate wellness retreat!
