As you fly in your small plane across northern Kenya into Meru you see a large rocky outcrop called Mughwango Hill. Your plane is dwarfed as it lands beside the hill, then 20 minutes later you are welcomed to Elsa’s Private House perched right on top of the hill. You can see for miles across the grassy plains woodland and rivers of fertile Meru towards ranges of volcanos in the distance.
Perhaps your vision of a perfect Africa safari is set on the vast plains of the Masai Mara where a million migrating wildebeest and zebra roam free under a huge blue sky. That vision can become a wonderful reality on your Africa Exclusive family safari. And what makes it even better is that this can be done in privacy from your own luxurious two bedroom family suite at Cottars Camp.

Every day brought new adventures and we learnt so much about every aspect of Kenya, its people and the wildlife. Within 24 hours of leaving home we were sitting overlooking Samburu, eating a bush picnic lunch while watching elephants and getting to know our two Samburu guides. How amazing is that?!
Africa Exclusive provided me and my family with an unforgettable, life changing adventure. It was an ethical and authentic African experience and the treatment and service was first class. We felt like participants rather than merely tourists. Amazing.
You have given us so much more than we ever had the right to expect. This was the perfect holiday in every sense – exciting, comfortable, educational, brilliant fun, a wonderful itinerary and every last detail organised and delivered to perfection. I do hope you all have the time and the opportunity to enjoy the sort of life enriching experience you have just given to us.
As regular visitors to Africa with Africa Exclusive, we’ve been constantly drawn back to the varied animal and bird watching, the landscapes and the ways of life.
We got back home yesterday after the most fantastic trip to Botswana that one could imagine. Everything worked well and the various organisations looking after us were extremely efficient so that our travel and accommodation arrangements could not have been better organised – and the people of Botswana are lovely. For us it really was the holiday of a lifetime. Worth every penny.
We have now returned home from our African adventure and would like to send a big THANK YOU to Africa Exclusive. We had the most amazing holiday, far beyond our wildest dreams and will remember it as a trip of a lifetime.

There is a world of difference between one of our tailormade safaris and most package holidays printed in a brochure. Package holidays are usually designed to be as cheap as possible and of course involve large numbers of people doing the same thing. Our safaris use small, more exclusive and remote camps usually with guests flying in, and often virtually everything is included in the price. The experience is completely different.
Many of these small lodges and camps have broadly similar prices, and it is possible to arrange a superb two week safari for between £4,000 to £7,000 per person ($7,000 – $11,000) season dependant, all inclusive. Realistically it is difficult to reduce that figure, and by including Botswana in peak season, chartering a private plane, disappearing to some magical desert island, or flying at the front of the plane it’s easy to substantially increase that figure!
