This festive season, nothing is more precious than the special time spent together with loved ones. The most priceless gift of all this Christmas is the ‘gift of experience’; a time for sharing, cherishing and deepening family bonds, which is far greater and more long-lasting than any material gift.

A holiday full Samburu song and sunshine the winter chill will not be missed.

Christmas is a time for building memories that won’t fade but will grow stronger and sweeter for years to come.

Preparations and decorations are underway for a magical family Christmas at our properties. A time when our guests can take a break from their busy schedules and join together to laugh, love and celebrate.

Sala’s Camp is getting into the Christmas spirit.

Kenya has just enjoyed the short rains which have injected a new lease of life into the landscapes surrounding our properties. Rivers have been filled and grasslands rejuvenated ready for the busier months ahead. The theme of nativity and birth go beyond our celebrations as the wildlife is also busy reproducing and pollinating making this the perfect time for observing the young offspring of a variety of species.

This year, we are excited to share The Safari Collection’s very own version of our favourite Christmas poem, which perfectly captures the magic of an exciting family adventure through a child’s eyes on safari. We hope that it makes your spirits soar and inspires you to cherish the ‘gift of experience’ with your loved ones this Christmas.

All of us here at The Safari Collection wish you a magical, memorable festive season with your loved ones.
