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!

Tafika Camp

Owner run and bush home to John and Carol Coppinger, Tafika Camp is the base camp for Remote Africa Safaris, nestled in the shade of giant Leadwood trees. The remote location makes it ideal for those who really want to get away from it all and experience the bush in the true sense of the word. Situated on the banks of the Luangwa, the camp provides amazing views of the river with plenty of opportunity to see elephants crossing, hippos wallowing and king fishers darting in and out the river offering a wonderful way to relax when not enjoying walking safaris, cycling trails or day & night game drives!..
