MORE SHADES OF BLUE

We are pleased to announce that Alphonse Island is now open year-round to travellers, so the only blue we’re feeling this Monday is the shades of endless possibility.

Alphonse was previously closed from May through to end of September as this was the time to rest the adjoining St Francois atoll flats from fishing. But with growing leisure tourism, Alphonse island now remains open for scuba diving and other marine safari adventures including deep sea and fly fishing. May to September are dryer months and while there may be more wind, days are less humid and skies are clearer.

St Francois remains closed from May to September, and Astove and Cosmoledo from late April to early November.

Kenya

WHAT WE LOVE: Kenya is the one country that offers everything. From the fun and funky capital city of Nairobi to the pristine beaches along the coast - Kenya offers fantastic diversity. The gorgeous Laikipia with its lush landscapes is crowned by its vast conservancies, the arid Northern Frontier which is home to the colourful and proud Samburu is an experience best complemented by the open plains of the Mara. Kenya's savannahs are rich with game, the cultural encounters are authentic, and the dramatic landscapes characterised by equatorial forests and mighty snow-capped mountains. Safaris have been the mainstay of Kenya’s tourism for many decades and it also rates as one of the top five bird-watching destinations in the world.

Forest Chem Chem

'Kuungana' means 'to connect' in Swahili and this is the essence of Forest Chem Chem. The camp has been designed to bring people together over the warmth of the crackling campfire. It is a place for families and friends to connect with each other, with the bush, with Africa and with themselves.

Here, guests will discover even more opportunities to explore the game-rich areas bordering Tarangire National Park and Lake Burunge. Forest Chem Chem is only available on an exclusive use basis with 3 vintage tents and 1 family tent. The camp comfortably sleeps up to 8 adults and 2 children. With exclusivity comes complete freedom! Forest Chem Chem is the opportunity to experience a bush camp of your own. Here, in the heart of Tanzania, are some of the most densely populated wildlife areas the country has to offer. This is due to the proximity to not one, but two national parks, and the resurrection of an ancient migratory corridor through this land as a result of the conservation work by the Chem Chem Association.
