With Ian Craig and the Tusk Trust
This is a chance to experience the research and conservation being carried out by Tusk in Kenya. Guests have a rare opportunity to meet some of the leading conservationists from the Trust and learn from the experts what the protection of wildlife in Kenya really means.
Thanks to the dedicated work of Tusk’s team and partners, endangered species such as the black rhino and Grevy’s Zebra have been brought back from the brink of extinction. This trip will take its travellers behind doors which are usually closed to the public to allow a deeper understanding of what it takes to keep animals such as these in existence.
We have prepared a unique journey from the foothills of Mount Kenya to the plains of the Maasai Mara meeting hidden tribes, leading guides and enjoying some of the best wildlife viewing in the country along the way.
Based out of two remote safari camps within the Lewa and Mara North conservancies, guests have seven nights to explore the bush using the eyes and ears of seasoned trackers and guides.

Remote, they may be, but these camps have created the perfect balance of an authentic experience combined with the comfort of en-suite bathrooms, fully furnished private tents and, at one camp, a swimming pool with views out into the savannah. Highlights include bathing in freshwater pools collected under the waterfalls of the Ngare Ndare Forest and special dinners in the bush lit by candles and the stars of the big, African night sky.
