OUR FRIENDS

SCC is an industry leader and consequently holds a number of very strong and personal relationships. Our accommodation options don't just end with our own lodges, we are able to introduce you to a number of other wonderful places and retreats all across Africa opening up a world of even more exciting options to add into bespoke itineraries and trips. See below a few of our favourites.

  • Situated on the well-known Lewa conservancy where the numbers of Black and White Rhino rival anywhere in the world, this is a truly fabulous location. The lodge overlooks a waterhole where all the game visits during the day, which means you hardly have to move. Sirikoi not only offers superb game viewing but an outstanding level of accommodation and hosting.

  • In the northern frontier of Kenya lies the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy, an area of 850,000 acres of pristine wilderness in the Mathews Range. The savannah plains and lush mountain slopes are home to elephant, leopard, reticulated giraffe, wild dog and kudu in ever increasing numbers. This remote and dramatic landscape is also home to the local Samburu people whose age-old traditions, including the famed ‘singing wells’ are as much a part of the fabric of this land as the wildlife.

SARARA CAMP
NAMUNYAK CONSERVANCY, KENYA

  • Latitude Adventures sets up camps in the dry northern territory of Kenya. This is more about culture and scenery than a wildlife experience. We combine this experience with a helicopter to explore the mountains and deserts returning to your camp each night. On the ground, we use quad bikes to dry up the dry riverbeds and often encounter local tribesmen and women about their daily chores and watering of their livestock which is a beautiful experience. The scenery is dramatic and harsh which on its own would be very inhospitable but clutching a glass of chilled wine and listening to the subtle sounds of the African night round the camp fire make for fabulous memories. We try and incorporate this stay in our conservation itineraries as every guest who stays pays conservancy fees which directly benefit the community.

LATITUDE ADVENTURES
SAMBURU, KENYA

  • Wild Frontiers offers tailor made walking safaris into the heart of Samburu country where founder of the Milgis Trust – Helen Dufrense has lived for over 30 years. Her relationship with the tribes-people has enabled her and her partner Pete Isley to set up a network of rangers who patrol and police this vast district and ensure that the pastoralist way of life continues to live in harmony with the wildlife. The safaris are personally escorted by either Helen and Pete or Helen’s nephew Digby. Everything is included (except transport to and from the camels), and you choose the others that go on the adventure. This is another truly special camping experience where you are active each day walking and rewarded with hot showers, a comfortable bed and delicious cuisine and plenty of ice for your drinks!

  • Owned and run by the Maasai community, Il Ngwesi offers something truly special. Visitors to the lodge have a full wildlife and cultural experience, enjoying hospitality more akin that offered to a valued family member. With no other tourist facilities within the Group Ranch, it is the ultimate personal experience. Supporting both communities and wildlife, it remains the only upmarket lodge that is both owned and run by the community. Its significance cannot be overstated.

  • Serian was the first of Alex Walker's camps, and it perfectly captures the essence of its name: meaning ‘peaceful, calm, serene’ in the Masaai language, it was designed to be a retreat from the bustle of contemporary life, and a chance to experience untamed Africa in traditional tented splendour. It lies in the private Mara North Conservancy, and the beauty of this location is that only 10 other camps have access to it – so the feeling of having your own personal piece of Africa is a luxury that the camp has plenty of. ALex Walker's Serian has other camps across Kenya and Tanzania that we also love!

Perched dramatically on the edge of a rocky bluff, which protrudes from the Mokogodo escarpment and overlooks a valley filled with Acacia and Newtonia trees.

A wonderful escape!

Little Governors, also based in the Maasai Mara, is a smaller camp with a more intimate feel to it.
