True to the motto “You arrive as a guest but leave as a friend" that we strive to achieve as a team, Secluded Africa promises a journey for all the senses, full of happiness and unique moments for eternity. Our three exceptional bush lodges as well as the precious Beach Lodge on the coast of Kenya are located in specially selected places far away from any tourist crowds, so that you share your exceptional safaris and beach experiences with only a few other like-minded people.

Immerse yourself in a true five-star experience tailored to your desires. Your happiness and well-being is our focus. We also take pride in all the work we put into looking after the wildlife, the environment, and our local community.

Secluded therefore not only stands for an individual holiday in the most remote regions of Kenya, but also for absolute sustainability. Numerous social projects are connected to our lodges, which are located in private conservancies. Every guest automatically supports these projects by paying a conservancy fee with his stay.

There are no fixed schedules or timings in the bush Secluded Africa. Each evening your guides will sit with you and plan your next perfect day with their knowledge of wildlife activities, combined with how you are feeling to make the perfect plan. Whether it's a full day game drive with breakfast and lunch in idyllic locations, a village or school visit, a night game drive or a walking safari.

What a wonderful place. We have visited Kenya different times and once after we experienced Diani we stayed away from the coast. Cardamom House has restored our faith in Kenyan beaches. Thank you so much for the brilliant 4 days with lovely food and service and great memories!

Conservation at work


The Olderkesi Conservancy is a 7600 acre piece of land set aside by the Olderkesi Community as a Conservation area in southern Kenya, immediately adjacent to the southeastern boundary of the Maasai Mara National Reserve (MMNR) and on the border with Tanzania. Olderkesi Conservancy is part of the greater Serengeti – Maasai Mara Ecosystem, crossing into Tanzania and covering approximately 30,000 km2


Mbulia Conservancy was initiated with the local community who wanted to develop a tourism initiative on their otherwise underutilized land. The agreement was struck between Mbulia Ranch and Amara Conservation who leased the 12,000 hectares conservation area to build Kipalo Hills.
