Our story begins in 2000 when the Wilder Group, then known as the Africa Eco Wilderness Group, was founded. That same year, we opened our first property, Ilkeliani Camp, located in the world-famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve. From the onset, we set out to wow guests in a unique way by combining the safari experience with luxury in showcasing Africa's beauty. We wanted to craft something special for those guests who enjoy world-class luxury accommodations and bucket list experiences. With five exclusive and intimate boutique camps in operation, each property possessing its own uniqueness, we've cemented The Wilder Group as a leader in the luxury safari segment. And our large fleet of purpose-built safari vehicles and highly trained staff offering 5-star service and culinary experiences complement the magnificence of each property's architecture. With our eyes set firmly on the future, The Wilder Group continues to expand its portfolio by developing new high-end properties and experiences in key safari destinations.
Unique experiences are what we’re here for. Our mission is to provide a customised safari experience that enhances your understanding of the natural environment. In doing this, we design moments for each individual that range from dazzling bush baths to close encounters on horseback and floating with one’s head in the clouds (quite literally!).
Integrity and honesty are the values we uphold towards guests. We don’t mind whether these visitors reside in our lodgings or the thickets – our desire is to be a force for good to both inspire and nurture that which inspires.
At our core, we believe in being a force of good in this world. We are based in Kenya, one of the most wonderfully wild locations on earth, and we want to do everything in our power to keep it that way.
We seek adventure. We live life on the wilder side, on the relaxing side, on the luxurious side. We take hospitality very seriously, offering the best of the best – without compromise.
