Collette Vacations has been creating memorable travel experiences for guests since 1918. Also known as Collette Tours, the company uses upscale, unique lodgings for its safaris. These range from actor William Holden’s former private retreat and a lodge built on stilts deep in the forest, to well-appointed tented camps that combine the amenities of a hotel with the allure of the wild.
Collette safaris offer an enriching experience for visitors to Africa, so in addition to game drives in parks and preserves, there are excursions to a chimp sanctuary and a tea-growing estate, as well as a chance to feed graceful giraffes from an elevated platform. Most meals also are included in the upfront rate.
Collette safaris explore the diverse terrain and wildlife of Kenya, providing ample time in spots like the Masai Mara Game Reserve, which boasts populations of lions, zebras, buffalo, giraffes, cheetahs and more. Among the oldest tour companies in the U.S., Collette offers more than 200 vacation packages in more than 50 countries.
Collette safaris are categorized as deluxe on the tour industry rating scale (budget, first class and deluxe). Below is a full list of all Collette safaris. To view itineraries, dates and prices, click any tour name.
