About this trip

African safari experience that takes you back to the 1920s. 

Shrike’s Experience Teddy Roosevelt's Adventure—offers the excitement and glamour of the African bush together with a romantic and indulgent itinerary featuring the most exclusive and luxurious tented camp in all of Africa. The following paragraph provides details of this itinerary and the tale of our inspiration for this exquisite safari.

In 1909 Teddy Roosevelt journeyed to East Africa with an entourage of society friends and there undertook a journey that would forever alter the world’s perception of luxury travel at its ultimate. Replete with collapsible canvas bathtubs, custom-made bed linens, exotic safari outfits and equipment, vintage wines, and elegant table fittings, the party set out with 500 porters to transport and service the needs of this exclusive group in their quest to conquer the bush in elegance and luxury.

​It was then that the concept of the tented camp was born, an elaborate combination of exotic African adventure and European civility and comfort. A century later, the Africa of Teddy Roosevelt awaits the traveler who wishes to experience the splendor of the wilderness in all its raw and stunning beauty while luxuriating in the finest of services and tented camp accommodations.

This trip will make every aspect of your journey unforgettable...
