“In this world of mass marketing the individual is sometimes lost. On my trip to Africa for 10 weeks this never occurred … my every wish became a reality”


Established in 1959, Kimbla-Mantana has its roots in the luxury tented safari traditions of Roosevelt and Hemingway. We concentrate on private, tailormade safaris which capture the essence and romance of the earliest days of the African safari – with the luxury and comforts of the modern age and an emphasis on personal service.

Kimbla-Mantana operates in Kenya, Uganda & Tanzania with bases and offices in Nairobi, Entebbe and Arusha. We specialize in luxury, mobile tented safaris mixed with private lodges and permanent camps.

The partners, Lis and Tony Farrell grew up in East Africa where their childhoods were spent in remote areas where safaris and camps were a basic part of growing up and adventures in the bush an almost daily occurrence.
