Jambo, Jambo! Kenya Couture
A 'Secret Women's Series' safari escorted by Sarah Hoyland
'Jambo, Jambo! Kenya Couture', a safari in our ‘Secret Women's Series' , follows in the footsteps of Camilla Franks' journey through Kenya. Designed by The Classic Safari Company, Camilla's 'design inspiration' journey combined superior wildlife viewing with immersive interactions with the tribal women of Kenya.......and
now you too can experience this incredible magic!
The focus of the safari is on style, fashion and interiors and along the way you will meet village elders, visit women’s empowerment projects and witness women at work as they strive to uplift their communities through education and sustainable development.
Escorted by Sarah Hoyland in collaboration with Andrea Powis - Chief Diva of the fabulous Travelling Divas - join a small group of like-minded individuals and enjoy a bespoke, luxurious and authentic safari that combines
the security and comfort of travelling with others, with the excitement and anticipation of new experiences, new cultures and a once in a lifetime
Travelling to Meru National Park, home to an impressive rhino sanctuary that strives to protect these magnificent and highly endangered creatures,
you will spend time game viewing where Elsa the lion once roamed, before climbing the Laikipia Plateau, noting the stark contrast in the shifting Kenyan
landscape before descending into the Rift Valley to view flocks of flamingos on Lake Nakuru. Continue south to the world famous Masai Mara where you'll be stunned by the abundance and rich diversity of game - from vast herds of elephant, wildebeest and zebra to big cats including leopard, cheetah, lion. Undertaking this journey by road offers
you a whole new perspective as you pass villages and communities, stop at road-side markets and visit community‐based organisations, clinics and
schools. You will harvest tea with the Kipsigi in Kericho, spend time with the Samburu and Masai listening to ancient stories and
learning the intricate details of their culture. Those with a sense of adventure can horse ride, join a camel safari, take a walk on the wild
side to learn how to interpret the signs of the bush and there will be plenty of time for some R&R - spa treatments, retail therapy and the opportunity
to visit the design studio of inspirational Kenyan designer Anna Trzebinski and
boutiques such as The Souk offering treasures from established artists such as a Linda Camm,
jeweller Sally Dudmesh and photographer Mariantonietta Peru
This is a grass roots, tribal experience interspersed with exceptional game viewing opportunities and a little pampering at our hand-picked collection of luxurious safari camps and lodges. A real adventure in unreal style for women who are truly passionate about travel!
