Announcing the Return of the Safari Pioneers! Starring…You

August 18, 2020 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email
Now is the time!
We have done our homework.

We have very solid Great Plains Conservation protocols.
We have tested our camps and systems ensuring your safety.
And we have heard from you about your desire to escape but to do it when the time is right.
The time to plan your return is now because we have a safari for you.
Today, we are announcing a bold initiative for you to return home to Africa, to the warm welcome of our communities and staff, to the conservation-based safaris that are synonymous with Great Plains Conservation and to the spectacle of Mother Nature.
For half a year now wildlife and these pristine landscapes have been devoid of people. All the properties in the itinerary sit outside national parks on private conservancies. Three of the properties sit on Maasai owned community conservancies which generate direct revenue from tourism for Maasai landowners. Those revenues have ground to a halt and that endangers these wildlife areas. They are under threat of being converted into agricultural or grazing land and being fenced off from wildlife if these communities cannot earn money from the land from conservation tourism.
Our returning safari pioneers will see Africa again, as if for the first time. We will get you there in style, and with almost no interaction with other people. Most of all, you will be emissaries of HOPE, restarting travel, connecting our world again, playing a role in our collective emotional rediscoveries, health, and strength.
We don’t believe in simply waiting for this all to just happen to us, we believe in taking charge of our destinies, finding solutions AND be a part of positive change. That is why what we are announcing today is so important. So filled with hope.
Great Plains Conservation is proud to announce the launch of their Return of the Safari Pioneers in partnership with Kenya Airways in a series of direct flights from New York to Nairobi, with exclusive health, customs and immigration formalities allowing guests to be cleared in private lounges and onto virtually Wingtip to Wingtip transfers into our camps. Our highest-end camps have been pre-certified from a health and safety standard, and qualify as self-quarantine camps that you can move between with this safari designed around Safety, Experience, and Minimal Fuss as our three priorities.
We have secured the entire Business Class cabin for each flight and with the addition of our Great Plains Conservation executive chef’s cuisine being served on board ensures this safari represents a first-class experience.
The inaugural departure of the Return of the Safari Pioneers from New York’s JFK is on Saturday, the 21st of November 2020.
This curated experience, limited to a maximum of 30 safari pioneers, is perfect for those wanting to immerse themselves in African wildlife sightings over the Thanksgiving period!
The safari includes 3 nights accommodation at each of our Mara Plains Camp, Mara Nyika Camp, ol Donyo Lodge, as well as a Great Plains Conservation partner property, Arijiju. The cost for the 12-night safari is U$D42,900 per person sharing including the return flights from the USA. The Return of the Safari Pioneers will include Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) donations worth thousands of dollars for distribution to our Kenyan communities.
What most people in the world have missed is the therapeutic effects of nature, space, clean air, sunshine, the gentle breeze coming off the plains.
Our Return of the Safari Pioneers is not just a Kenyan wildlife safari, but one that pampers the soul, rehabilitates the spirit, reconnects us all to ancient African roots, and that shared hunger for space and purity.
As members of Relais & Châteaux and National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, we have always delivered on service and sustainability, but now we deliver on enhanced health, safety, and wellness at a higher level because these things are equally important today.
We have studied the best practices of leading health advisors and from our association with the above organizations assembled our cutting edge protocols. The key to this great initiative goes beyond safety to the finest experience, and the ultimate in hospitality and to giving back to the communities that so desperately need tourism to work.
Additional opportunities for personalized departures from the United Kingdom, Europe, UAE, India, and the USA are available with recommended stays from at least 10 to 14 nights in order to truly experience the best that these wildlife destinations have to offer whilst ensuring guest’s privacy and safety.
For further information and to reserve your place on this Return of the Safari Pioneers November departure please feel free to email our reservations team or speak directly with Los Angeles based Caroline Graham via email or phone 310-487-2881.
