Escape Black Friday - Go Green!

24 November 2016

EAST AFRICA: Without a doubt, my personal best time to go is January to March. Traditionally the high season, it is BEAUTIFUL - the colours are bright and soft, the temperature is perfect, the value is incredible! Just this week, Nicky Fitzgerald summarised it perfectly in a refreshing blog post: KEEP CALM AND COME WHEN IT'S GREEN - we couldn't agree more!

Here are two journey ideas to get the best out of East Africa, with more on our WEBSITE:

I ♥ Kenya Ultimate East Africa


  • KENYA — diversity:
    • THE SAFARI COLLECTION — Mara plains, Samburu culture, rhino conservation, iconic experiences in one circuit.
    • ANGAMA MARA — the views, people, Mara Triangle, easily combined with anything.
  • TANZANIA — expansive wilderness:
    • LEGENDARY EXPEDITIONS & CHEM CHEM SAFARIS — vast private concessions with incredible cultural interaction in such diverse areas and so much more. The start and end to the Northern Circuit.
    • GIBB'S FARM — an oasis on safari and an experience in its own right: community, hiking, farm life, views & gardens that soothe the soul.
    • AZURA SELOUS — a singular, massive Selous safari! Combine with Ruaha (we recommend Asilia's Kwihala Camp) or the coast (we recommend White Sands, Zanzibar or Fundu Lagoon, Pemba Island).

A PARTING THOUGHT: You know, the wildebeest migration is but one aspect of an unbelievable, rich, breathtaking, astonishing experience in East Africa. We truly are spoilt for choice. And people don't migrate - the interaction with ethnic groups and tribes in East Africa is raw, authentic, honest-to-goodness the real deal.

Until next week

Kwandwe Fort House

Kwandwe Fort House is situated on a knoll overlooking the wide open plains of the 54 000-acre reserve.

Fort House discreetly combines the very best of an exclusive safari lodge with the latest conveniences of a modern home, it offers total privacy and an abundance of space to reconnect with loved ones. Guests can unwind on the front terrace with an amphitheatre vantage; overlooking the wildlife-rich expanse of grassland leading down to one of the major waterholes on the reserve. The heated rim-flow pool shares the same view, as does the boma which is sunken into the grounds of the expansive lawn in front of the house. Further fea..
