‘Out of Africa’ Luxury Safari
June 12 – 23, 2019
This safari is inspired by the Oscar-winning film and Karen Blixen’s book recounting her adventures in Kenya. We begin on the outskirts of Nairobi where she once farmed and a visit to her home which is now a museum. Our first safari camp is set in the scenically beautiful and wildly remote place Denys Finch Hatton called home. We’ll spend time in the Lewa Conservancy for a deeper understanding of cultural and community ties that are the key to conservation. Our last days will be in the famous Masai Mara where wildlife viewing is always sure to amaze.
Responsible Tourism and Philanthropy
Travelers have an effect on the places they visit. Tourism dollars can have a positive social, economic, cultural and environmental impact. We limit our portfolio to working with safari outfitters and destination specialists who have environmentally and socially responsible operations that minimize impact on wilderness areas, employ local citizens and provide financial benefits for local communities.
Your professional guides will share their expertise on current conservation and community struggles as well as the political and cultural issues of the area. Knowing more about the lands you travel and the people who live there builds mutual respect and fosters cultural understanding. We can arrange visits to local communities, schools, clinics and homes. Duffle & Compass can also provide information about philanthropic opportunities that are specific to the areas you will be visiting.
