Deriving from the word Nomadic, we as a safari company are in constant search for new places, exciting experiences and off the beaten path adventures to share with you. Not only will it be a journey into the wild but an opportunity to re-connect with the natural world. We’re an intimate band. Without borders, without boundaries. We travel where the heart leads us. And where our clients wish to go.
At Nomadic Africa, we lead exclusive guided safaris throughout Africa. We plan every detail of your safari. And, using our own unique experience of the wilderness, we guide you through it. Every safari is different. Some of our guests want to capture images, some experiences. Some like to explore the entirety of Africa – travelling to Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and down to Southern Africa. Some want to fulfil the dream of a lifetime and visit the great national parks and reserves. Others prefer the privacy and exclusivity of private conservancies. Some elect to make our own luxury mobile camp their ‘home’. Others prefer to stay in private conservancies or 5-star lodges.
The choice is yours – whatever your dream, we’ll make it happen.
As professional guides, however, we’re uniquely placed to work with you on suggesting itineraries; and to work with you to create a bespoke safari that exactly meets your dreams. Finally, because we are associated with the greater Ker and Downey family, you benefit from all the expertise that this world-famous company has developed down the years. In the meantime, take a wander through our website, and let the nomadic adventure begin.
Nomadic Africa… wander where the spirit takes you.

Shaun Mousley was born in Kenya and grew up on a 24,000 acre tea farm in Kericho, Western Kenya. With neighbours far and few between he spent most of his time fly fishing the rivers and dams, and going on long treks through the Mao forest satisfying his love for the outdoors. With the Maasai Mara being on his doorstep, many weekends were spent camping there with his family from which the love of the bush was born. By the age of five he spoke more Swahili then English.
After school Shaun got the chance to travel Africa and worked as a white water rafting guide and instructor in Kenya and Uganda. During these years Shaun discovered his need and love for new and exciting adventures, as well as the diversity of people and cultures.
It was then that he chose to pursue the industry of hospitality where he completed his degree in South Africa. Whilst in South Africa Shaun was able to work and gain experience in game reserves close to Zulu Land, Kwa Zulu Natal. From then onwards many exciting opportunities arose where he then moved to the ocean side of Seychelles to fulfill one of his other passions and love for the sea. Finally, the longing of African soils under his feet lead Shaun back home to Kenya, where he was able to combine his hospitality experience and love for the bush. For four years he managed two of Kenya’s top luxury lodges in the Maasai Mara and the Chyulu Hills/Amboseli ecosystem. During these years he hosted guests from far and wide, guiding them on bush walks throughout these big game countries. Finally, Shaun decided to move on and focus all his energy doing what he loves. He is now a full time private guide & photographer, taking guests on Safari throughout Africa.
Luxury Mobile Camping
When travelling with Nomadic Africa, you have the unique opportunity to experience luxury mobile camping in the wild, where decadence, exploration and adventure is the spirit of the day. What’s more, because this is mobile, it has no adverse impact on the wilderness. Creating your own safari base offers exclusivity and flexibility while enjoying the 5 star amenities of the camp.
Nomadic Africa is a partner with the well-known Original Ker & Downey Safaris, the oldest and most renowned safari company in Africa. It was founded in 1946, and since then has perfected the art of the luxury mobile tented safari. This allows access to remote wilderness areas, generations of knowledge and personalised service. Each camp is set up according to your needs and nothing is left forgotten. From hot showers to warm you up on those cool clear starry nights, to that refreshing cold drink to quench your thirst while enjoying Africa’s warm sunshine. After a long day out learning and observing nature’s beauty, a fire is lit, stories are shared and a goodnight sleep in awaits.
Our tents are uniquely spacious and guarantee you supremely comfortable beds, soft linen and fully fitted en-suite bathrooms with both hot and cold showers and flushing loo’s.
Wining & Dining
Our mess tent follows traditional lines and we excel in delivering absolute luxury in the midst of the wilderness. We believe in working closely with our guests in advance of the trip to determine which menus will best suit them. Our safari chefs, meanwhile are masters of the art of cooking the natural way. Similarly, our bar will be equipped with everything that you desire. Because we’re nomadic, our catering style melds al fresco with traditional ‘Out of Africa’. Evening sundowner cocktails are traditionally served in a panoramic spot, ecologically sound campfires add atmosphere. Our mess tent is designed to create a feeling of old-style grandeur and 5-star luxury while being open to nature on all sides.
