The decks have been swept and waxed, the sheets have been tucked in, the glassware has been polished and the food is being prepared for your arrival!  We are delighted to announce the opening of the 2014/15 season and looking forward to hosting our guests from Sunday 1st June!  

A huge welcome to our new staff members including our new Camp Managers this season of Bas & Suzanne in Siwandu, Sophie-Claire at Jongomero and Leo & Frankie at Ras Kutani and of course a warm karibuni tena to our wonderful teams across the camps.  Our long standing reputation has been built up on the strength of these great teams and the support system back at Head Office so I personally want to wish them a fabulous season!

We look forward to what lies ahead - who comes through our doors, what stories we will share, and what fantastic sightings we shall see!  Speaking of which Jongomero has had some early visitors this season, who have been keeping our team up at night with their roars..they were seen near the camp this morning having a nap..

So join us and these beautiful lions this season!
