The Safari Collection is a portfolio of four family run properties in Kenya, all of which are heavily focused on sustainability and giving back. It is at the heart and soul of everything they do. Their ethos is to be low impact, community and conservation orientated to the core and to have a significant positive influence on the people and environment around them.

The Safari Collection runs a wide variety of community and conservation projects out of each of their four properties, including wildlife conservation, educational projects and projects based around improving the health of local communities.



We are acutely aware of the delicate balance between tourism, community and conservation and how our actions can affect each element of this triangle to facilitate positive change and development. The communities living around our properties are key to the preservation of the wilderness area and the wildlife that lives there. The Safari Collection is supporting community and conservation development through a few carefully chosen projects, all of which directly conserve wildlife, addressing the primary causes of their decline and meeting the most important needs of the surrounding communities.

Current Initiatives

Wild Dog Collaring

Northern Kenya is a stronghold for the African Wild Dog, a species which has declined in numbers, from a population of 600,000 two decades ago to less than 5,000 today. The Safari Collection backs the monitoring and protection of these beautiful creatures through collaring.

Charles Wickham Honi Primary School

The Safari Collection has recently facilitated the complete refurbishment of the Charles Wickham Honi Primary School outside Solio Lodge. This school was formerly in a terrible condition with students exposed to wind, rain and cold in their classrooms resulting in poor exam performance and high drop-out rates.

Conservation Scholars

The Safari Collection currently sponsors twelve students from communities close to Solio Lodge and Sasaab to attend secondary schools and become the next generation of Kenya’s young conservationists.

Feeding Young Minds

A daily school meal provides a strong incentive to send children to school, keep them there and allow the children to focus on their studies rather than their stomachs. Providing school meals has many benefits.


Improving health facilitates positive change and development. The Safari Collection runs projects to help improve the health of our communities such as family planning, eye surgery missions and dental clinics.
