[ANNOUNCEMENT] Working through COVID-19
02 March 2020


COVID-19: Talk to us

It has been the talk of the town and we simply can't ignore it any longer.
Our response? Let's be flexible, let's communicate, and let's keep travelling.

We acknowledge there is uncertainty around current bookings as well as planning new trips. While there is very little we can do to change the global impact of COVID-19, we do believe that we should be doing as much as possible to encourage people to still travel.

As we stand in this together, the Classic Portfolio members will be flexible with deposit payments, cancellation policies and confirmation dates.
Check in with us for the individual members' amended booking T&C's.

While the current impact across our Portfolio is low. Through communication and collaboration, we remain open to working together for the best outcomes for your business and our Classic Portfolio members. When you secure new bookings, we benefit. Let us know how we can help in closing those deals.

I am off to India on Saturday and will be washing my hands and taking extra immune boosters. I feel the need to live by what I am asking other travellers to do and look forward to sharing my adventures from Kashmir with you.

Connect with us

While we all have to take this disease seriously, the repercussions of not travelling will be disastrous. Let's keep supporting each other to continue conserving and protecting wild places in Africa.

Warm regards

And finally, what about those masks? If you are healthy, they are widely regarded as a waste of time when travelling, unless you are adhering to IUCN protocol for gorilla tracking. Let us stay informed and pragmatic.

WHAT WE LOVE: One of Africa's most iconic destinations, and considered one of the safest countries of Africa, Botswana is the perfect partner to our safari camps in Zambia and easily accessed into and out of Maun for brilliant combinations with Cape Town and the Winelands. The Okavango Delta is a highlight and we love the land- and water-based opportunities to discover nature and truly connect with our roots.


Siruai Expedition Camp

Siruai is an authentic mobile safari camp situated in the 43,000-acre privately-owned Suyian ranch in central Kenya. Perched on a rocky ridge line, the camp overlooks the Ewaso Narok River valley and out over the Laikipia Plateau with views of Mount Kenya beyond. ‘Siruai’ means ‘eland’ in Maa – the world’s largest antelope. These shy herbivores are one of the many beautiful animals you can spot around the camp – look out for their striking long black twisted horns and the distinctive white stripes on their back. Most definitely off the beaten safari track, Siruai Expedition Camp immerses you in a lesser known, wild pocket of Kenya and is perfect for exploring the incredible scenery of northwest Laikipia.
