FOR THE DISCERNING TRAVELER

CURATED EXPERIENCES
IN EAST AFRICA

You've dreamed of an African safari, but don't know where to begin. We understand the dilemma. We’ve been through it ourselves plenty of times back in the beginning, but that was almost three decades ago now. Since then, we’ve packed a lot of experience (and a lot of suitcases) under our belts, designing trips for ourselves and friends, writing it all from scratch—slowly turning the ramshackle into the refined. And once you start doing safari exactly the way you want to, no other way of traveling will do.

Where will you start yours?

How can we enhance your experience?

We think good travel is as much about connecting with destinations as it is about connecting with the right people, and we’re thrilled to introduce you to our Penwell family. From hand-picked guides and fully vetted accommodations and meals, you are in good hands all the way. 

 

Whether you’ve shared with us that you’ve always wanted a pancake breakfast at sunrise in the bush or that purple is your favorite color, we’ll be calling directly to the chef or the housekeeper to arrange for things to be just so. We’ll undoubtedly scratch up some choice hidden gems especially for you. We'll set you up with a team that provides sensational service by habit, and breaks out the fine china for you. Looking for something more? We also have a wide range of activities that you can add to your safari experience.

Want to extend your stay? Travel with us to Uganda, Rwanda, Zanzibar and Victoria Falls.
