African Beginnings

Authentic cultural travel experiences personally arranged by Adams & Butler - African Luxury

Adams & Butler Africa offers tailor-made vacations and safaris to Kenya & Africa. Specialising in small owner managed and exclusive properties.

Adams & Butler Africa will be seen as the travel agent’s agent - a one-stop shop with intimate unrivaled insider knowledge of Africa and a large range of offerings available which can be designed to match your clients’ requests. No-one is offering this at present in Ireland.  

Director of Operations in Kenya & Tanzania is Kasao Learat, an elder of the Samburu (Maasai) Tribe and fluent in English, Swahili and Maa, Kasao is one of the highest qualified and most sought after independent guides in Kenya. Born in the Northern Frontier, he trained in both South Africa and Kenya. He received an honorary lifetime Wardenship from the Kenyan Wildlife Service for services rendered as manager of the Anti-Poaching Unit in Tsavo National Park. He is highly experienced in all aspects of ground handling within Kenya and has worked in all the major National Parks and Reserves as well as for various 5* Private Camps & Reserves. Kasao brings intimate product knowledge of Kenya & Tanzania, familiarity with doing business in Africa, and a keen understanding of what customers want from an African safari and vacation elsewhere on the continent.

Adams & Butler Africa is a sister company of Adams & Butler founded by Siobhan Byrne Learat in 2003. Adams & Butler is an incoming tour operator offering personal attention & full concierge services in Ireland, Scotland & England, specialising in stunning accommodation and travel services for wealthy and sophisticated clients and memorable itineraries with brilliant (albeit quirky and eccentric) guides, privileged visits to private places and an entree to high society & the aristocracy.  

Many of the guys we subcontract are often more well known than our 'celebrity' clients! In 2005 Adams & Butler formed a joint venture in China with Sli Siar owned by Chris Horn which attracted a lot of high profile clients from China, but most of our clients are now from North & Latin America as well as the Arab World, Australia and Russia. Clients have included international billionaires and celebrities. Siobhan even had Michael Jackson sitting in the back of her car! We are very proud of what we do and our passion is giving a real authentic Irish experience to our clients visiting Ireland. Money doesn't drive us but international respect and reputation does. Adams & Butler is a member of Virtuoso, the largest consortia of luxury travel agents in the world, the International Association of Golf Tour Operators – IAGTO and an affiliate member of the  ITAA – the Irish Travel Agents Association as well as the American Chamber of Commerce and the Irish-US Council.
