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.

Old Mondoro

About an hour east downstream by boat from sister camp Chiawa, Old Mondoro is located in the wonderfully open area of Faidherbia Forest. The camp is a far simpler affair that Chiawa yet the guiding levels, activity choice, service and excellent home-cooking remain are par.

The comfortable rooms are strung out along a hippo-friendly channel off the Zambezi, enjoying great views with their half-height walls and small decks.  Activities at Old Mondoro focus on game drives and boating, though the elephant and hippo activity around camp are enough to encourage a lodge-based safari! Tasty meals are served fireside or in the open-sided thatched dining room, and star-gazing in this remote spot makes a perfect pastime.
