a safari camp in the wild

Wilderness Camp is our nostalgic tribute to the safaris of the early explorers and safari pioneers. Free from artificial luxury and modern disturbances. Wilderness camp is how safaris were meant to be.

Tucked away deep inside the Saddle Valley, it is just you, the Maasai, the wildlife and the stars.

From Wilderness, we offer our signature walking safaris. These can be tailor-made to suite your preferences, ranging from short hikes to several days in the bush.

“Yes, this was the way it was meant to be” – Karen Blixen, Out of Africa

Our eight tents have been delicately placed around the Saddle Valley rim to allow for complete privacy and ultimate views of the savannah.

Allow yourself to be amazed by the magical ambiance of complete stillness and seclusion; perfectly enjoyed alongside our selection of first-class food and drinks.
