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.

Republic of the Congo & Central African Republic

WHAT WE LOVE: The Republic of the Congo and Central African Republic, both former French colonies, are 2 of the 6 countries across which the Congo Basin expands. Second in size to the mighty Amazon, the forests of the Congo Basin contain the greatest number of mammals, primates, birds, amphibians, fish and swallowtail butterflies in Africa. More than a 1,000 species of bird can be found here. The basin is a total of 3.7 million km2 and is home to some of the largest undisturbed stands of tropical rainforest on the planet, in addition to large wetlands. Connecting two of the most iconic locations - Odzala-Kokoua and Dzanga-Sangha National Parks - within this rainforest wilderness offers the most exciting opportunity to discover a part of Africa in a truly pioneering way, while making a significant contribution to the long-term conservation and community sustainability of this region. This is no longer the 'Heart of Darkness'. This is Africa unmasked, beautiful and powerful. This is the most exciting destination to be opening to tourism. This is CONGO CONSERVATION COMPANY waiting for you to discover the most remarkable and unspoilt natural wonders of the continent.
