Adrian Allen was born and brought up in Kenya, and passed his younger years roaming, exploring and fishing, nurturing a love for the wild outdoors and pristine places.
Always knowing that a 9 to 5 lifestyle wasn’t for him, he trained as a guide in South Africa, and came back home to guide camel safaris. Tracking Elephant and Buffalo on foot in Northern Kenya became second nature to Adrian. He rapidly added camp management to his skill-set, now with nigh on twenty years guiding experience, Adrian is a part owner of Alex Walker’s Serian and takes care of running our operations in Kenya.
He has spent the last few years in our Serian, Ngare Serian and Nkorombo camps, and being on site in the stunning Mara has been the perfect spot for nurturing his true passion: guiding.
Living the bush life has kindled his deep understanding and appreciation of this world-class wildlife zone, and there is no one better to show you round. He loves the fact that when it comes to the bush, one never stops learning, and every day can yield something new and exciting.
He’s in his element on foot, and a safari with him is as much fun as it is fascinating – an appetite for mischief ensures no dull moments, a compelling safari companion an “Adrian Allen Adventure” is one you’re sure to remember.
