If you were to leave civilization behind, round up 10 of the best people in your life and all retreat into the wilderness, where would you go?

One of the most fascinating and famous wilderness destinations on the continent is the Maasai Mara in Kenya. As well as being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is also the seventh natural wonder of the world and, perhaps the most important, the place on earth with the greatest concentration of terrestrial fauna.
And, one of the best ways to experience this amazing place is with your friends and family in a luxury private villa. If you want a piece of African nature all to yourself then this is how you get it, at least for a short while. And it wouldn’t be a Kenya safari – considered the birthplace of the word – if your African home away from home was nothing less than distinct style, luxury, and comfort.
So, let’s see what you can expect when you get away from it all in a luxury Kenya safari house.

Exclusivity begins where your luxury Kenya safari home is located. Private reserves and conservation areas are off the beaten track, hidden from bustling national parks, where game sightings are often notoriously crowded with several other vehicles.

What better place to complete this level of exclusive destination, than with a stylish home to feel good about on your Kenya safari.

Connect with each other and with yourself
Whether it’s a girls-only safari you’ve been planning for years or a first-time safari for the whole family, spending quality time chatting, playing and relaxing together is easier and more comfortable in a space that belongs only to you. Like Charles M. Schulz – the creator of Peanuts comic book starring best buddies Charlie Brown and Snoopy – says “In life, it’s not where you go, it’s who you travel with”.
New experiences can so often be made even more meaningful (and unforgettable!) Just by sharing them with your favorite person (s). They become part of your collective memory, part of the collection of stories to be told and remembered for years to come. There will always be someone else to fill in any gaps in the story that you might have forgotten or even didn’t notice at the time. Imagine watching the massive herds of wildebeest, zebras and impalas move through the Maasai Mara, which you know would only be a small part of a long and arduous journey that they instinctively take. every year. Imagine being able to reflect on this incredible wildlife spectacle – an unforgettable experience for many – with a best friend, child or parent.
But vacationing with this special group of people doesn’t mean you don’t have time for yourself. While you no doubt enjoy spending time with them, everyone still needs time to recharge, whether it’s social, emotional, physical, or all of the above. Fortunately, an exclusive use home is spacious and expansive, with a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces to choose from in order to accommodate this. very human need. In fact, to keep the holidays quarrel-free, blocking out part of the day for a little “time for myself” is a good idea for everyone in the group.
