The American movie star described the new venture as a new global luxury brand.

A good friend of mine who ran Six Senses from its inception, up to when InterContinental Group bought it, and my friends at the Discovery Land Development Corporation, have a big announcement in the spring. And we’re working with them to build state-of-the-art sustainable camps in Kenya, that will come over the next couple of years,” Norton said.

He also shared the news with Fahd Hamidaddin, the CEO of the Saudi Tourism Authority.

Aside from having fully electrified camps, electric vehicles will be available as well as sustainably sourced water and only locals will be employed.
