Gamewatchers Safaris have been operating for 30 years and are based in Nairobi on the United Nations Crescent, next to the modern Village Market shopping complex in Nairobi’s diplomatic district. From here we provide personalized safari arrangements for clients who prefer a more individual safari programme, avoiding the mass-market tourist lodges.
Many of our safaris involve transfers by air from Nairobi direct into the parks and conservancies. This cuts out long journeys across the country and gives you more time to view wildlife. We use the domestic flight services of Safarilink from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport.
Our friendly and experienced Safari Consultants will be delighted to help and advise you in planning your safari and making all the arrangements for your chosen itinerary.

Gamewatchers Safaris was established in 1989 by our Founder, Jake Grieves-Cook, who has been involved in Kenya’s tourism industry for over 40 years, starting in the Masai Mara in the early 1970s.
Jake has served in recent years as Chairman of the Ecotourism Society of Kenya (ESOK), Chairman of the Kenya Tourism Federation (KTF), a board member of the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), a trustee of the EU/Kenya Government Tourism Trust Fund (TTF), as Vice-Chairman of the East African Wildlife Society and Chairman of the Kenya Tourist Board (KTB).
Twenty years ago he was one of the pioneers of a new private sector conservancy concept, creating protected wildlife habitat by leasing plots of land from communities adjacent to the parks to form conservancies and paying for the costs of leases and providing jobs for community members from tourism income to our small eco-camps. He was closely involved in setting up our wildlife conservation projects with Maasai communities at Amboseli and the Mara and continues to take a personal interest in helping to support the success of the conservancies going forward.
