The Roberts’ family has been in the safari industry for over 50 years, operating and guiding safaris across the continent and developing lodges in Kenya, as well as contributing hugely to wildlife conservation in Kenya. Mobile Expeditions is run by Roberts family members Ross and Caro and their Classic Camp and Explorers Camps are set up in wild locations throughout Kenya.

Willie Roberts, the founder of Mobile Expeditions and Caro’s father, was a true visionary and one of the forefathers and most instrumental ambassadors of wildlife conservation in Kenya. He set up the first Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya in the Masai Mara, essentially founding the ‘conservancy movement’, saving the greater area from being carved up for farming, laying down a clear path of success for community conservancies in Kenya and setting an example and an inspiration for others to follow.

Mobile Expeditions Desert Camp is a fully equipped luxury mobile safari camp of up to 10 double, en-suite safari tents, and a large ‘mess’ tent for lounging and dining. It is only available on an exclusively basis for a min of 4 guests for 3 nights or more. It is privately guided, exquisitely catered and set up in one of several beautiful and remote locations.

North Kenya is one of the last remaining, truly wild and vast wilderness areas in the world. The hot and dry climate, red and rocky earth, dry winding riverbeds fringed with Doum palms, incredible night skies and rare wildlife species, make for an exceptional camp location. It is also home to some of the most intact tribes of Kenya. The camp is set up in the Ndoto Mountains – from wild walks and hiking, cultural experiences with the local tribes, scenic helicopter excursions and fly-camping in the desert – this is the ultimate adventure safari destination!

The Mobile Expeditions team plan, set up and guide you on a luxury safari that takes you to some of Kenya’s secret wildernesses. Experience a private camp with all the comforts of home – spacious bedroom tents, en suite bathrooms with hot showers, three course delicious meals and beautiful decor. The Classic Camp perfectly combines comfort and charm and is furnished with all the ‘necessary luxuries’ such as white linen, woven carpets and hand-made furniture. The Classic Camp truly offers the ultimate experience of the original safari.
