NEWLAND, TARLTON & Co. 1904 Vintage Camp, Maasai Mara
While staying true to our origins as a classic East African camp, we provide the superb service of a fine boutique hotel: your laundry done every day by your personal valet, your shoes brushed and cleaned every night, your private tent cleaned and beds made every morning while you are out on your game drives, and many spontaneous kindnesses. Our guests often comment that getting to know our friendly and professional staff was one of the unexpected pleasures of their safari.
Each of our roomy vintage-style tents is insect-proof, and have large windows hung with heavy curtains easily opened to enjoy the pure air of Africa, or closed for complete privacy. A curtained doorway leads from your sleeping area to a well-lighted dressing room, furnished with campaign washbasin and chair, mirrors, and a vintage steamer trunk wardrobe for your clothes. Two adjoining curtained compartments contain an old-fashioned bucket shower in one section, and a modern flush loo in the other.
Our specialty is bringing all the personal touches of a fine hotel to the heart of wild Africa.
We invite you to JOIN US!
Newland, Tarlton. & Co. first invented luxury tented camping in 1904 and we feel we have perfected it. Our specialty is private luxury, mobile tented camp programs in Kenya. Our camp crew: including chef, valets, waiters and camp guards are not just ‘staff’ but proud professionals who supply all the homey, personal touches of a fine hotel.
WORLD FAMOUS FOOD
Many of our clients who frequent the great restaurants of London and New York City, have said our food is as delicious and enjoyable as they have ever had. Before each safari, we send our guests a questionnaire for diet preferences and we can prepare vegetarian, low-fat, ‘South Beach Level II” or “Picky U.S. Teenager” menus as required.
ROMANTIC AND COMFORTABLE TENTS AND FURNISHINGS
Chairman, Donald Young has designed all the tents and camp furnishings himself to create the perfect blend of romance, safety, and comfort while maintaining the true safari experience of camping out in the African wilderness.
Much of the tourist industry in Africa is now taken up with the ‘boutique safari camp’, small permanent lodges, which although beautifully decorated, are not the True Safari Experience. We have stubbornly stayed true to our origins while still providing Africa’s most comfortable tented camps. All of our clients are personal referrals, and over 75% of our clients come with us every few years.
We go on safari with Don Young and his Newland, Tarlton & Co. team every year. Over the past 20 years, we have tried many of the high-end safari companies but Don became our favorite in East Africa and we recommend Don to all our friends. We feel Newland & Tarlton are the best for safety and comfort, attention to detail, great food, great staff and guides. We highly recommend Newland & Tarlton Luxury Camping, and we know you will have the safari of a lifetime.Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Ludwig, Los Angeles California
