Between us, the company has over thirty years of experience creating, managing, and leading group tours and successfully integrating unique elements into our tours that are of particular interest to a group.



  • Special Interest Safaris 

Boutique Safari Ltd. also operates specialized safaris designed to accommodate the unique needs or interests of groups. We customize safaris for women, seniors, gay/lesbian guests and guests from a particular country. We will do our best to provide a guide who speaks your language. Also, we work closely with school groups, college/university groups, or groups with a focus (i.e. birds, Maasai culture, ecology, volunteer/charitable work, etc.).

Maasai Cultural Interaction: Boutique’s two company founders, Abbey Olemisiko and Raymond Teekishe, both grew up in traditional Maasai villages.  Consequently, they have a combination of intimate knowledge of Maasai culture as well as a passion for wildlife. This unique experience lends itself to the creation of highly customized tours that enrich, educate, and provide for cultural interactions that no other safari companies can offer.

Charitable/Volunteer Tours: We are also pleased to incorporate charitable or volunteer work into your tours if requested. For example, we can facilitate visits to local orphanages impacted by the AIDS crisis, charities which engage the disabled who otherwise have few opportunities, or villages which have schools, medical dispensaries or projects that our guests may wish to engage with.

Camping safaris range from the ultimate in luxury in stunning tented camps to modest camping safaris. Camping safaris are a unique way to experience the bush, with all the sights and smells and intrigue that comes with camping.  We work closely with each client as a team iteratively creating your unique camping safari or tour. We provide flexibility, expert advice and listen to your needs.
