Kosen was born and raised in a small village in Narok Kenya, as a young boy growing up in the savannahs of Southern Kenya, his eventful childhood was one spent in the splendors and the dramas of the untamed Africa where wildlife ruled supreme. His travel experience has evolved out of his deep love and passion for the African wildlife and wild places.
Kosen’s father was a Safari guide for over 25 years and was among the pioneers of the modern-day safaris. As a young boy and throughout his teenage years he accompanied his father on many safaris expeditions, from those early days the savannahs of East Africa and their majestic wildlife stole his young heart and planted it deep in the wilds of Africa. Those childhood memories go with him on every safari he takes to Africa. Kosen is therefore very fortunate to have travelled extensively in East Africa and experienced firsthand the beauty of the land and her people.
Today Kosen is the President and Founder of Kosen Safaris-Africa a family owned company which specializes in Exclusive / Tailor-Made safaris to East Africa with offices in the USA, Kenya and Rwanda and presence in Tanzania and Uganda. All our offices are run by highly qualified personnel who are chosen for their absolute dedication to understanding those wonders that make East Africa unique. For ten years we have been customizing great safari itineraries for clients from all over the world to enjoy safaris to some of the best wildlife reserves and parks in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda with the emphasis on the more personalized and smaller safari camps and lodges.

This project is helping uplift and enriches the lives of the indigenous communities while building a stronger foundation for the future generation and protecting the environment- one solar panel at time!
At the core of his mission is the belief that protecting Africa’s wildlife and wild landscapes is the key to the future prosperity of Africa and her people, he has made it his goal to help ensure that Africa’s wild resources endure.
