Kenya safari breaking news – Cheli & Peacock to honour and remember the Adamsons this summer


Cheli and Peacock Safaris will this summer offer a dedicated tour to two of their Northern Kenyan camps in commemoration of the famous Joy Adamson – of Born Free fame – when they will welcome one of her former assistants, Martin Clarke. Martin will visit ‘Joy’s Camp’ built by Stefano and Liz Cheli on the exact spot where Joy’s first ever camp was pitched in what is today the Shaba Game Reserve.

After concluding his stay at ‘Joy’s Camp’, where Martin is going to interact with guests to share his memory of those long gone days and show some of his photographic collection from back then, he will move to C&P’s Meru camp ‘Elsa’s Kopje’ which was set up above George Adamson’s erstwhile campsite in an elevated position. Cheli and Peacock now own and/or operate 14 unique and individually crafted boutique properties across some of the fanciest destinations in Kenya, on the safari circuit and along the coast, and have over the past 26 years – they were established in 1985 – become one of Kenya’s foremost safari and camp operations, bagging rewards galore for many of their properties. Visit for more information and to appreciate the incredible variety of places one can visit under this ‘one stop operation’.

Notably, and related to this news item, will the 22nd anniversary of George Adamson’s passing be commemorated with an event in Kora National Park on the 19th of August this year at ‘Kambi ya Simba’ and details for that are available on a special Facebook page where all details, how to get there and what an organized tour will set participants back can be found:!/event.php?eid=219294608095289
