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.

During the Green Season from April to June, the long rains transform the vast Mara plains into a green landscape as fresh grass and leaves emerge. The rains are often short and sporadic in the morning and evening, with plenty of sunshine in between the day. This season allows guests to enjoy an endless array of spectacular wildlife sightings. There is also plenty of good photographic opportunities, and the green scenery and comfortable temperatures enable guests to enjoy a truly laid back safari experience. Our green wilderness safari is tailor-made to take advantage of the best opportunities to observe the diverse wildlife in rich habitat areas.
