About Anna

Welcome to KENYA

I'm Anna - This Is My Story

Born in Sweden, I grew up in the countryside, swimming in lakes and exploring pine forests. Passionate about nature from a young age, I always had a desire to explore the wonders beyond Scandinavia. I first visited Africa in 2005 and my life would never be the same.  ​


In 2007 I returned to climb Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro (5895m/19,341 feet) - raising money for Tusk Trust. Further safaris to Kenya followed, always involving visits to conservation projects. In 2012 I spent three weeks as a research volunteer with Utopia Scientific as part of Stanford University’s elephant research project in Etosha National Park, Namibia. Studying these wondrous animals fuelled my desire to take my wildlife passion to another level.  


In 2017 I undertook an intensive safari guide training course with EcoTraining in Borana, Kenya & I also passed the additional Bronze Level Award with the Kenya Professional Safari Guide Association (KPSGA). In 2022 I completed an East African ornithology course for Guides in North Laikipia, Kenya.


I'm honoured to have been made a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (FRGS) and I'm passionate about sharing my wildlife conservation knowledge to bring the wonders of this amazing country to life.

In Swahili, 'safari' means “going on a journey”. To me being on safari is indeed not just about travelling but about a journey full of unique experiences. Spending time on the open savannah, seeing majestic animals roaming free makes a safari so very special. Being so magically at one with nature truly touches your soul - believe me, it will happen to you too! ​​Anna Safari Guide trips are not a 'tick-list' exercise - I believe it is a joy to be close to nature and to experience whatever wildlife wonders each day presents. I aim to share my wildlife/conservation passion and experience with all my guests, I hope you will join me one day.

"I undertook an 11 day safari in Kenya with Anna Martinsson, visiting Amboseli, Samburu and the Maasai Mara.


Anna’s knowledge, passion and enthusiasm for all wildlife, and in particular elephants, made the trip very special."

Sally, Australia

"Anna’s passion and knowledge was apparent throughout the whole safari and the important message of conservation of this amazing place on earth was always at the forefront.


Anna was positive, upbeat, caring and funny and we were all made to feel like true VIP’s."

Karin, London

"Anna is a skilful, knowledgeable & considerate guide. Anna has an in-depth knowledge of elephants but she also knows so much about so many other animals.


The camps and locations Anna chose for us were quite different and gave us an amazingly wide experience of the wild animals in Kenya."

Eva, Stockholm
