we are the carr-hartleys

We are both fourth generation Kenyans descended from settler families, each of which carved out their own paradise in an unspoilt wilderness. Our extensive knowledge and mutual love of the African landscape and its indigenous wildlife led to the setting up of Specialised Safaris to guide and manage private luxury safaris in East and Southern Africa. Allow us to guide you through a "safari" and journey towards our world.


As a family we delight in sharing the Africa we love and treasure with you.


Based in Kenya, we create unique itineraries for our guests throughout East & Southern Africa
