Africa has always been a Janine Cifelli Representation favorite. And no country speaks the mother-earth, dark-continent more than Kenya…
A sanctuary for the endangered Rothschild giraffes. Backdrop for the 1985 epic, romantic drama (played by Robert Redford and Meryl Streep) detailing the real-life of Karen Blixen. Home of black and white rhinos; migrating wildebeest. And the heart-and-soul of the continent’s game-drive, safari experiences.
“We are so excited to welcome The Safari Collection, Kenya, to our collection. It’s a perfect fit. We couldn’t be more thrilled to share the stories and adventures of these authentic properties,” say managing partners Janine and Anthony Cifelli. “Each hotel within the collection is different, beautiful, sweeping, a unique experience unto itself.”
The Safari Collection was founded by Mikey and Tanya Carr-Hartley, both fourth-generation Kenyans, whose families have deep roots in Kenya’s wildlife and safari life. Included in The Safari Collection:
GIRAFFE MANOR: Classic. Romantic. This lovely ten-room manor beautifully captures an “Out of Africa” ambiance with its blend of casual elegance. And warm hospitality. Set amidst acres of indigenous forest, the property offers sanctuary to the endangered Rothschild giraffes that wander the grounds; poking heads through bedroom and breakfast windows, and enchanting guests.
SALA’S CAMP: Wildebeest are a highlight at this seven-tent camp. Situated in the heart of Kenya’s renowned ‘Big Five’ haven, the Masai Mara and confluence of the Sand and Keekorok rivers – Sala’s Camp is perfectly positioned to welcome the annual wildebeest migration. When more than a million gnus pour into the game reserve from the Serengeti.
SASAAB: Stunning. Gold-rated. This eco-lodge blends seamlessly into northern Kenya’s rugged terrain – offering a remarkable safari experience and cultural immersion with the Samburu people. Sasaab guests enjoy airy accommodations with private plunge pools. A beautiful spa. And an array of activities including visits to a local village, traditional dancing, camel trekking and game drives, of course.
SOLIO LODGE: Kenya’s best-kept secret. Solio enjoys exclusivity as the only lodge within Kenya’s first private conservancy, and the country’s most successful rhino breeding sanctuary. View, up close, the extremely rare white and black rhinos, along with other major African wildlife. Then relax afterward in one of the lodge’s five beautifully-appointed cottages – each with fireplace and uninterrupted view of Mt. Kenya.
