Anthony RussellAnthony Russell


Born and raised in Kenya and the UK, Anthony is an artist, designer, musician, and most of all, mad-keen conservationist with a passion for lions and Maasai culture. The son of a famed Kenyan hunter and safari operator, Anthony has drawn upon a lifetime of experience in the East African wilderness, a deep knowledge of tribal culture and a rebellious and artistic spirit to create some of Africa’s most desirable and eco-friendly luxury safari camps and lodges, including Che Shale in Malindi, Shompole, Olarro and Naibor in the Masai Mara and Galdessa in the Tsavo Game Reserve.
