This fabulous trip incorporates three very different lodges in diverse areas of Kenya. Stay at the iconic Giraffe Manor, Karen where you can breakfast with endangered Rothschild's Giraffes and visit the nearby Sheldrick Trust elephant nursery, fly to the heart of the Masai Mara to Sala's Camp, a wonderful riverside tented camp in a prime wildlife area, famous for its big cats, and in an excellent position for the Great Migration between late June and September, and stay at beautiful Solio, a private wildlife sanctuary, tucked in the valley between the lofty slopes of Mount Kenya and the peaks of the Aberdare Mountains.The Solio Reserve is internationally recognised as the most successful private rhino breeding reserve in Kenya and visitors will find that sightings of up to 40 rhinoceros at a time are not uncommon.
The Safari Collection is heavily focused on sustainability and giving back with a low impact, community and conservation orientated ethos. Specific projects include the Mara Cheetah Project, using a research-driven conservation approach through a combination of long-term population monitoring, ecological research and community-based conservation. Sala's guides are at the core of the monitoring programme, taking images and identifying individuals for the Kenya Wildlife Service. You will also have the chance to find out about the rhino breeding project at Solio and the Rothschild Giraffe project at Giraffe Manor. The Real Africa Trust works with leading conservation organisations to raise awareness as well as raising funds for specific projects. Partners include Save the Elephants, Save the Rhino, The Sheldrick Trust, Rhino Conservation Botswana and Animals saving Animals. You can find out more on our Conservation pages.
