Botswana

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.
