As 'the' company that coined the phrase BUSH HOMES® and created the magic of staying in private homesteads in the African bush as far back as 1972, we feel we have a right to evolve the concept - Bush Homes is now about staying in your own private (full sevice) house in the bush!


Natural Evolution

These hidden gems offer Uncharted guests the consummate opportunity to escape the crowds but not the herds.  Our custom private journeys to these properties offer private and intimate experiences where you are treated like old family friends, where the dogs lie snoring at your feet around the communal dining table and animated chatter can be heard till the wee hours of the morning around the campfire.  This is the Africa that beckons most of us, young and old alike, sun baked mornings in a Safari jeep photographing the great wildlife of Africa, sleeping under the stars as Hyenas balefully howl in the distance or watching your family attempt a gentle lope on a camel for the first time!

AFRICA IN A VERY INTIMATE WAY

Our custom private journeys to these properties offer private and intimate experiences where you are treated like old family friends, where the dogs lie snoring at your feet around the communal dining table and animated chatter can be heard till the wee hours of the morning around the campfire.  This is the Africa that beckons most of us, young and old alike.

 

 









Our Original Concept
In 1993, we created the Bush Homes of East Africa, as an association of private ranches, small intimate lodges, luxury tented camp, bush camps, coastal retreats and small up-country estates in the heart of Kenya and Tanzania. These "Bush Homes" have been in existence since European settlers came and lived off the land in the 19th century, when Africa was still considered a remote frontier where only the brave and rich ventured. Today, a few of these families whose ancestors settled this beautiful, fertile land still live on these spectacular properties. They have opened their doors to outsiders offering us the chance to experience true safari life as it was in decades past.  Founded in Kenya, the Bush Homes properties are located on private land and on conservation areas near or adjacent to the famous national parks and game reserves. Nearly seventy percent of Kenya' wildlife reside outside the parks. Accommodations range from stunning wildlife ranches to luxury tented camps, private estates, homesteads and traditional tented camps. All of the Bush Homes properties are small, intimate and exclusive by nature, with capacity from ten to fourteen guests.

This is the Africa that beckons most of us, young and old alike, sun baked mornings in a Safari jeep photographing the great wildlife of Africa, sleeping under the stars as Hyenas balefully howl in the distance or watching your family attempt a gentle lope on a camel for the first time!
