This 8-day family safari is set in a stunning private residence on northern Kenya’s Laikipia Plateau. Chief’s House is ideal for extended families with teenagers or pre-teens with its variety of outdoor adventures and on-your-doorstep relaxation options.
Devote your days to exploring the rugged hills and valleys of the 25 000 acre Ol Lentille Conservancy in the expert care of your private Maasai guide. Will you choose to explore in a safari vehicle or on foot, head out on quad or mountain bikes, and take a horseback outride or camel outing?
Spend a night fly camping in the wilderness and put the teens’ newly acquired bush skills to the test. For anglers, the highlight is definitely hopping aboard a helicopter transfer to go trout fishing on Mount Kenya.
There is plenty of opportunity for rest and relaxation, too: soak up the sun around the plunge pool on the deck or pamper yourself with spa treatments. Each evening, gather with your family on the plush sofas to exchange stories about the day’s adventures and play board games around a roaring fireplace.
This 10-day safari delivers exceptional experiences in two of Botswana’s wildest settings. Journey into the unforgettable Makgadikgadi Pans with legendary guide Ralph Bousfield. From your base at Jack’s Camp, which is the epitome of old-school safari style, explore the grasslands on game walks and drives, add a cultural encounter with the extraordinary San people and a big serving of comedy when you meet the colony of habituated meerkats.
Then head out into the endless pans on quad bikes with Ralph Bousfield, botanist, archaeologist and fifthgeneration guide. He grew up in the Makgadikgadi and founded Jack’s Camp in honour of his father. He will share the secrets of the Kalahari with you supported by a team of staff that ensure your expedition is utterly comfortable and completely unforgettable.
A chartered flight whisks you to the lush setting of the Selinda Reserve, where you explore this remote wilderness on foot, by boat and on private game drives.

Experience big game viewing as you have never seen it before, and relax amid the impeccable service and comfort of Zarafa Dhow Suites, your private and luxurious home-away-from home in this remarkable reserve.
