Fresh back from Kenya and Tanzania

27 January 2014

Suzanne, Katie and Cara have just returned from 2 weeks in Kenya and Tanzania visiting our clients. We also made time to see some new lodges which broadened our knowledge of the region and has equipped us to sell our Portfolio more effectively!  It was the first time we stayed at LITTLE CHEM CHEM which surpassed all our expectations!! 
 
SOLIO LODGE - Laikipia, Kenya: It's not only about the rhino (although they have the highest concentration of rhino on the whole of Kenya)! Solio also offers a large diversity of wildlife, wonderful views of Mount Kenya and is perfectly placed for day trips to the Aberdares.  We also popped in at Ol Pejeta, Segera, Lewa and Borana.  

SALA'S CAMP - Maasai Mara, Kenya:  We love the location of Sala's. There are no other camps in the area which means no vehicles or people to be seen.  While in the Mara we saw 12 other camps, all have strong selling points, but Sala's has the most exclusive location.

SINGITA MARA RIVER TENTED CAMP - Lamai, Serengeti, Tanzania:  Bravo Singita! A completely eco-tented camp with a luxurious contemporary design, elegant sophistication and fabulous resident game overlooking the Mara River. You can use this with confidence! Book early.

CHEM CHEM LODGE - Lake Manyara, Tanzania:  Stunning camp and so good to see how the resident game herds have grown, we also had thousands of flamingos.  Katie and Cara loved Mango-Choo the domestic dwarf mongoose!  Perfect to combine with SINGITA - Faru Faru, Sabora or Mara River Tented Camp.

LITTLE CHEM CHEM - Tarangire, Tanzania: LOVE this new addition to the Tanzanian safari circuit. Perfectly located to experience the beauty and elephant herds in Tarangire while enjoying the flexibility offered in a private concession.  It is hugely different and far enough apart to be an ideal combination with Chem Chem Lodge - take advantage of the Chem Chem Combo package.

GIBB'S FARM - Ngorongoro, Tanzania:  A true oasis within a generally dusty safari circuit. With over 7ha of veggie gardens guests enjoy amazing 'Farm to Fork' meals with over 70% of the produce fresh from the farm gardens! New chef is ex Azura Retreats and Singita so let your guests enjoy the tranquil environs of the farm while savouring delicious meals.  Perfect combination with Chem Chem Lodge and Little Chem Chem.

We are brimming with enthusiasm for the year ahead so please call us for more information on our trip if you would like more detailed feedback.

ALL THE BEST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD!

Kwandwe Melton Manor

With sweeping views of the Afromontane Forests, Melton Manor at Kwandwe is a contemporary frontier farmhouse with a modern touch. This sole-use safari villa, where the smallest detail of your stay is planned according to your specific wishes, is perfect for family holidays, parties or groups of friends. The welcoming villa with its four en-suite bedrooms are cleverly designed around the central courtyard and its large, inviting swimming pool, while the interiors humorously combine traditional mid 20th century furniture with the latest in South African design. Our favourite is the interactive farm-style kitchen which invites guests to try a hand at combining flavours under the cheerful guidance of their personal chef or if the g..
