I first visited Kenya in 1986 and went on a real ‘Out of Africa’ safari in the Chyulu Hills south of Nairobi. On the way into the camp, on one side of the vehicle we kept pace with lolloping giraffes; my first wild animals. To the other side was the majestic sight of Kilimanjaro, just over the border in Tanzania. I was instantly hooked…I had the African safari bug.
Since then, I have visited the country over 30 times. I’ve stayed in many safari camps, lodges and boutique beach resorts over the years, met many different wildlife guides, and found places to stay that are not widely marketed. Kenya is, after all, the original safari destination and the hosted owner-managed homes in the bush were pioneered here – many fourth-generation families that I know personally will take you out on safari.
I am drawn to Kenya by the incredible diversity of scenery, from the Rift Valley and the savannahs of the Mara, to the rugged, dramatic Laikipia region and the stunning powdery beaches of Lamu and the Kenyan coast. There are many moments etched in my memory, but walking with Samburu warriors with a light mobile camp across Laikipia has to be one that has stayed with me the longest.
