Safari Planning Tips for 2018

14 December 2017

KENYA: As THE SAFARI COLLECTION's 2018 rates start from the 16th December, we remind you of a few important notes you may have missed during the year.


SAFARI PLANNING TIPS:
  • GIRAFFE MANOR — Welcoming Edd & Salma, 2 new Superior Rooms in the Garden Manor, the capacity increases to 12 rooms altogether.
    • Please remember, the Garden Manor is reserved for guests using Sala's Camp, Sasaab and/or Solio Lodge in the same itinerary. Tip: great value COMBINATION OFFERS this way!
    • Check-in is strictly 11:00 am and check-out at 10:00 am.
    • Early-bird arrival is available for guests with early flight arrivals and collection is strictly from 6:00 am at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. It is not available for guests staying elsewhere in Nairobi. Guests will have their room available from normal check-in time and breakfast is served in the dining room. Giraffe interaction will be possible the next morning in the breakfast room.
    • Luggage left for safe-keeping at Giraffe Manor is charged at US$ 5 per item per day.
  • SOLIO LODGE — One of few places where you can see black and white rhino together, Solio is an incredible lodge with majestic views of Mount Kenya. A must-do is a day trip into the Aberdare National Park for fly-fishing, beautiful waterfalls, and a fabulous picnic lunch.
  • SASAAB — Climb onto the back of a camel, or to the top of Sundowner Rock. Sasaab holds a special place in all of our hearts with so much to offer, from getting to know the people, their culture, the vast landscape, the resident dik-diks and rock hyraxes, to getting the adrenaline rushing on a quad bike or finding your inner adventurer through fly-camping.
  • SALA'S CAMP — Now with plunge pools at every tent, they are quite the splash.
    • Please note there is no late departure from Sala's during High Season. Late departures during Standard Season are available at 50% of the per night rate and guests have use of the main areas. Normal check-out time applies to the room.
  • COMBINATION OFFERS — The one-stop solution to building a circuit in Kenya. Up to 40% off accommodation - READ MORE.

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...
