Founded by Tanya and Mikey Carr-Hartley in 2009, The Safari Collection owns a portfolio of four luxury boutique camps and lodges in the finest locations in Kenya. Tanya and Mikey are fourth generation Kenyans descended from settler families, each of which carved out their own paradise in an un-spoilt wilderness. It is this pioneering spirit from which The Safari Collection was born. The energy and passion of our dynamic team flows through everything that we do. Our authentic, first hand knowledge expands the entire region helping us to create unique, cutting-edge experiences.


The Safari Collection handles global marketing and reservations for our four properties: Giraffe Manor, Sasaab, Solio Lodge and Sala’s Camp. Each has its own unique environment and distinct features, bringing Kenya’s glorious wildlife together with history, culture and an unrivalled guest experience. We can also arrange stays with our partner properties elsewhere in the region as part of a bespoke itinerary.


The Safari Collection is an East Africa specialist tour operator. We create bespoke itineraries to suit our guest’s requirements, whether it is a family of four with young children, a honeymooning couple or a work incentive trip. We can organise everything from the perfect accommodation to private transfers by air or land and add experiences from an endless range. Choose from horse riding, hot-air ballooning, fly camping under the stars, camel trekking and visiting local villages to learning about native traditions and many more. The options are almost limitless and for those that just want to relax there is always the spa.


The Safari Collection can create a completely personalised itinerary for you and recommend the best private guide to suit your needs. On a privately guided safari, a dedicated independent guide will accompany you and your party every step of the way. These carefully chosen professionals are custodians of knowledge and wisdom that has been passed down through generations. Your private guide will give you an induction into local traditions, get you up close and intimate with nature and escort you throughout your journey, moving from camp to camp and region to region, on foot, by road or air. Your privately guided adventure can mix comfort and luxury with authentic bush living – whichever way you want it. Our expert team are on hand to assist with any enquiries you may have.
