Classic Portfolio Sustainable Mega Fam: Kenya
In October 2016, The Safari Collection was involved in the travel industry’s first ever Sustainable Mega Familiarisation trip. We hosted eight leading travel experts from around the globe at our properties. The trip was stitched together to allow the travel experts to become intimately acquainted with the pillars of sustainable tourism in Africa: conservation of natural resources and wildlife, involvement and development of local communities, and commercial sustainability of authentic experiences.
'The First Noel' from The Safari Collection and Maia Von Lekow
Our Christmas video for 2016 has been recorded in Kenya by Kenyan musician Maia Von Lekow. We are also giving a contribution to our sustainability fund on behalf of every guest staying with us this Christmas Season. Thank you for helping us keep the spirit of Christmas giving alive all year round!
Zawadi ya Safari – Gift of a Journey
The season of giving is upon us and we are feeling privileged and excited to welcome our guests and give them the magical and unmatched gift of a journey to Kenya this Christmas. With only 10 sleeps to go until the big day, Christmas preparations are underway with decorations being hung, fridges filled and presents wrapped. As we wrap up the year and reflect on 2017 we would like to pass on a heartfelt thank you to all of those that have come on safari with us this year and for giving us the greatest gift of all… the gift of your journey. Every safari gives us the ability to do many wonderful things like supporting vital wildlife conservation, local communities and education projects. Over the past few months The Safari Collection team have been busy creating a Christmas video with a life-sized emoji box representing the gift of your journey and the people it brings joy to along the way. Working with Maia Von Lekow and her African version of 'Jingle Bells' we hope that this short, fun film will bring a smile to your face and some Christmas cheer to your heart! Thank you for the gift of your journey, the most meaningful gift that you can give!
'Twas The Night Before Christmas' by The Safari Collection
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. This year, we are excited to share The Safari Collection’s very own version of our favourite festive poem, which 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 friends and family this Christmas. From all of us here at The Safari Collection, we wish you a magical, memorable festive season with your loved ones.
Introducing the Giraffe Manor Swing
Nothing beats the childish freedom of sweeping through the air on a swing, arms and legs outstretched, curving high up into the sky before feeling the rush of air as you whoosh back down. Big enough for several little bottoms at a time, our giant swing has been a huge hit, and not only with our younger guests. With fabulous views over the Ngong Hills in one direction, the Manor in the other and an audience of giraffes, it certainly scores highly on Instagram appeal!
Journey to the Pride Lands
The Safari Collection's Lion King Safari trailer captures the magic of Kenya’s real ‘circle of life’. This trailer is a taster of our privately led Lion King Adventure that will throw you into close encounters with all of the ‘real’ characters from the film and enable you to experience the magic and majesty of the breath-taking African Savannah which inspired Disney. Music: "Circle of Life" by Alex Boyé ft Alisha Popat & Lamarti
Happy Easter from The Safari Collection
On behalf of everyone at The Safari Collection, our founders Tanya and Mikey would like to wish you all a HAPPY EASTER from their home in Naivasha, Kenya. While this year’s celebrations are sure to look a little different, we hope you are able to spend time with loved ones and find joy in slowing down, living in the moment and appreciating the small things – the feeling of sunshine warming your face or seeing new blossom on a tree. We look forward to seeing you all again soon, until then, we’ll do our best to bring Africa to you through all our social media channels. Happy Easter!
