Founded by Tanya and Mikey Carr-Hartley in 2009, The Safari Collection is a portfolio of four luxury boutique camps and lodges in the finest locations in Kenya. Tanya and Mikey are a family passionate about adventure, the spectacular un-spoilt wilderness areas of their home country and protecting it for future generations. It is from this pioneering spirit and love for Kenya’s wildest corners that The Safari Collection was born. The energy and passion of our dynamic team flows through everything that we do.
