ROBIN'S TOP 10 PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS

GIRAFFE MANOR

14 March 2019 (1 night)

Arrive from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Enjoy the iconic sanctuary that Giraffe Manor has created for the endangered Rothschild's giraffes, or spend the day with a multitude to do in Nairobi.

Spend time with the world's tallest breakfast companions before departing to Wilson Airport and an 80-minute flight to Samburu.

SASAAB

15 - 17 March 2019 (3 nights)

We love this arid and undulating landscape. Here, guests are offered a glimpse into Samburu life, while also having the chance to explore the wild, fly camp outdoors, take a ride on a camel through the wilderness, or relax at Sasaab, one of our favourite places to be.

Depart on the 3rd morning with a 20-minute private charter flight to Solio airstrip.

SOLIO LODGE

18 - 19 March 2019 (2 nights)

The beautiful Mount Kenya in the background, impressive numbers of black & white rhino, cats, birds, and other wildlife, horse riding or cycling, higher altitude with cooler days and open-top vehicles are only a few things that make Solio Lodge special.

Guests say farewell Kenya as they depart on the 2nd morning to Nairobi for their international flight home, or they can opt for 2 nights in the Maasai Mara with Sala's Camp before closing the chapter on this adventure.

Seychelles

1500km east of mainland East Africa lies an archipelago of 115 islands collectively known as Seychelles. The outer islands, with a land area of 220 km2 make up almost half of the land area of Seychelles and 2% of its population. These outer islands comprise 9 important bird areas, the largest population of giant tortoises, nesting grounds for turtles, over 180 bird species, 320 species of coral, over 1000 fish species, spinner dolphins, humpback whales, bottlenose dolphins, pilot whales, melon-headed whales and even the elusive dugong.

Within the outer islands is the Alphonse Group, the coral islands of Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier, about 1 hour's flight and 250km from Mahé. Just over 1000 km southwest of Mahé you find the Aldabra Group, including Cosmoledo and Astove Atolls. An atoll is a ring-shaped coral reef including a coral rim that encircles a lagoon partially or completely. There may be coral islands or cays on the rim. The coral of the atoll often sits atop the rim of an extinct seamount or volcano which has eroded or subsided partially beneath the water. The lagoon forms over the volcanic crater or caldera while the higher rim remains above water or at shallow depths that permit the coral to grow and form the reefs.

It is amidst this vast oceanic playground that you will find Blue Safari Seychelles.
