Ever wondered what it takes to plan award-winning safaris? Anyone who has ever been on safari with us in Africa will understand and appreciate the level of first-hand knowledge, attention to detail and constant management required.

But did you also know that one of the things that really sets Rothschild Safaris apart from the crowd is our long-standing relationships across Africa? For over two decades, we’ve been a part of the tight-knit safari community in Africa. These valuable relationships go a long way towards ensuring our clients have a trip of a lifetime.

And now, you will have the opportunity to follow along while our very own Leora Rothschild checks out new properties, new safari experiences, and destinations across Africa. And meet some of our safari community friends along the way. Join Leora via Live Facebook video updates as she shares it all with you during the first two weeks of September 2017!

Highlights of the trip include;

The Great Wildebeest Migration in Kenya

Great Migration in the Masai Mara

Experiencing the Great Wildebeest Migration is on the bucket list of many travellers. This is one of the greatest, most awe-inspiring occurrences in the natural world.

As the wildebeest migration currently moves towards the Mara River, Leora will not only be checking this out in person but also exploring the best new ways for travellers to have the best, most epic opportunity to see this natural show.

A Stay at the Mara’s Most Highly Anticipated New Property

On the rim of the Great Rift Valley Escarpment, overlooking the Mara Triangle, regarded by many as Africa’s finest safari destination with its year-round resident game, Angama Mara looks to be floating in mid-air. The site of the property, perched high on the escarpment, includes views that quite simply take your breath away. With direct private access into the Mara Triangle, this is where some of the loveliest scenes from the film Out of Africa were filmed!

Walking Safari in Northern Kenya (With Kids!)

When planning a safari in Africa for kids, keeping everyone busy and engaged is one of the most important design elements. We love walking safaris in Kenya, especially for families. This slower pace allows for a much more interpretive, educational experience, and when travelling with kids walking is always better than spending hours in a vehicle! Our partners on the ground are constantly innovating when it comes to family safaris in Africa, and we can’t wait to experience the latest on foot!

Experiencing East Africa’s Most Exclusive Safari Destination

This uber-exclusive 58,000-acre reserve in Northern Laikipia is the perfect place for anyone looking for luxurious privacy. With spectacular scenery, a great conservation platform (100% of income from guest stays goes directly to conservation), and amazing wildlife and food, this is perhaps one of the most exciting new safari experiences in East Africa this year!

And this is just the beginning! Be sure to like Rothschild Safaris on Facebook to catch all the live video direct from Africa!
