  • For decades, Kenya has continued to tower over its peers in Tourism prowess owing to the quality of its service and the generous price tag that accompanies it.

    In its 2022 edition of National Geographic Traveller UK, The Luxury Collection, the magazine ranked Kenya's low-carbon luxury as the best safari  to try in 2023.

    For an eight-day trip, travelers are treated to a multi-destination trip spanning the beloved Giraffe Manor to animal conservancies.

    The holiday-makers first spend a night at Giraffe Manor before they are taken to Solio Lodge in the Central Highlands - a Rhino conservancy.
