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.

Zambia

WHAT WE LOVE: Having done safaris all over Africa our whole team agrees that Zambia is still one of the most sensational and authentic safari experiences. As the home of walking safaris this is one of the best places to get out of the vehicle and do a safari on foot. Hailed as Africa’s ‘diamond in the rough’ or even ‘the warm heart of Africa’, Zambia is a country blessed with awe-inspiring natural wonders, a huge variety of wildlife and an abundance of birdlife, huge water bodies (including 17 magnificent waterfalls) and great tracts of pristine bushveld. It has also been acknowledged as one of the safest countries in the world, whose inhabitants are known for being warm and welcoming. It is a landlocked country, sharing its borders with Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Angola to the east, Namibia and Zimbabwe to the south, and Mozambique and Malawi to the east. It even shares a 2km border with Botswana!

Little Chem Chem

Bordering Little Chem Chem is an acacia forest within the typical landscape of the Tarangire National Park and its impressive Baobab trees. The camp overlooks the freshwater Lake Burunge with the Babati mountain range as a magnificent backdrop on the south-west. The north east faces the hills of Tarangire in the distance. Known as the sunrise camp, Little Chem Chem is home to early morning displays of glory.

Set on the earth, the five vintage tents have a large bedroom with rocking chair and study desk, a vanity area with dressing room and an en suite bathroom with running hot water shower and flushing toilet.

The atmosphere at Little Chem Chem is welcoming, elegant and oozing authenticity of a bygone era. The luxury of sharing 16’000ha with only 10 guests sets the ideal stage where one can perfectly blend into the wilderness. Lions roam around the camp and call each other at night; stately elephants march down to Lake Burunge to get a sprinkling of fresh water; cheetahs hunt on the plains facing the lake; leopards, eland and lesser kudu can be seen in the more dense woods in the inner part of the wildlife management area. And wherever there is water, the bird life is abundant and colourful.

Little Chem Chem is the ultimate setting from which to explore on foot, slow down and indulge in a sensual African safari.
