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.

Blue Safari Seychelles

Situated in the heart of the Indian Ocean in one of the last, untouched frontiers, Blue Safari Seychelles pioneers a new style of experiential travel while actively conserving this pristine region. Of the 72 islands and atolls that form the remote outer islands, they have selected the most pristine and enchanting four as their base. From here you can discover, experience and protect the surrounding natural wonders.

An hour's flight from the main island, Alphonse Island is the headquarters of Blue Safari Seychelles. With 22 Beach Bungalows, 5 Beach Suites and 2 4-bedroom Beach Villas, and welcoming children of all ages, this is family paradise. Enjoy a private family channel snorkel or plant a tree, giving it your family name. Visit the uninhabited islands of Bijoutier and St Francois, explore Alphonse Island by bicycle, or enjoy a secluded picnic on the beach. 

Hop on the plane southwestward and a 2-hour flight later you are on Astove Atoll. Stay in the 6-bedroom Coral House from where incredible snorkelling experiences await. The “Wall” is a breathtakingly beautiful sheer drop and is best described as looking down into an underwater Grand Canyon. It consists of the flat and reef dropping a vertical 90 degrees from ankle-deep water to more than 1000 metres over a short distance. The “Wall” is known as one of the best snorkelling and dive sites on this planet. The terrain varies from hostile shore breaks on the windward side, to flat calm coral flats on the outside and snow-white sand flats inside the lagoon. Its unique lagoon system is home to countless aquatic seabirds as well as the Caspian turn, dimorphic egret and red-tailed tropic bird along with a population of over 150 giant Aldabra tortoises.

Just over 1000 km southwest of Mahé lies Cosmoledo Atoll, an hour by boat from Astove (and the only way to access it). Cosmoledo comprises a larger white sand lagoon surrounded by vast sand flats dotted with over 20 islands, islets, and cays of various shapes and sizes. The remote location makes Cosmoledo a place of wild natural splendor. Habitats include sand dunes, expansive flats, mangroves, grassland and a dramatically fluctuating lagoon. This unique combination creates a hotspot of biodiversity. The atoll with its scattered islands is home to large populations of endemic birds like boobies, terns, and frigate birds. The lagoon and its sandy beaches are favoured by large populations of hawksbill and green turtles for nesting and a host of feisty fish species on the flats. Here, on Wizard Island (or Grande Isle) is a single Eco Camp where nature meets creative, eco-friendly hospitality. The Camp consists of eight double/twin en-suite Eco Pods with a central communal dining and entertainment area - large tent with bare sand floors.
