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.
FULL ITINERARY

Artistic expression, community and culture come together in a powerful experience. This trip is suitable to any level of photography skill, but space is limited, so do not dawdle in arranging it for your clients.

Namibia

WHAT WE LOVE: The big open spaces, incredible dark skies at night, landscapes that take your breath away and the desert climate that makes for fantastic photography. Namibia is a country of many cultures, stories, and history. One of the highlights of this mostly desert country is the NamibRand Nature Reserve. With its own set of stories that tell of perseverance, commitment, passion, and success, we are thrilled to represent two prime camps in the Wolwedans Collection.

Mwiba Tented Camp (Mila Tented)

 

Located in Mwiba Wildlife Reserve, a conservation concession dedicated to the balance between wildlife and communities, this area is only available to a handful of guests, facilitating an excellent, uncrowded safari experience within the greater Serengeti eco-system.

 

MWIBA TENTED CAMP with 6 tented rooms, will be closing 19 December 2019 and will be replaced by MILA TENTED which is being built in close proximity, but a new location, and will open on 20 December 2019 with 5 tented rooms and 1 two-bedroomed family tent. Designed and crafted by Nicolas Negre with interiors by Fabia Bausch, owners of Chem Chem Safaris, the style of Mila Tented has been inspired by the success of Little Chem Chem and the interiors have a splash of purple celebrating one of the Da'toga's traditional colours.

Guests staying at Mwiba Tented Camp (Mila Tented) are allocated a private vehicle and guide per booking and together with undertaking a safari adventure they can visit the Hadzabe, Datoga and Maasai tribes for a glimpse into their culture and traditions as they go about their way of life. Furthermore there is the option of fly camping for those who want a real sense of adventure and a night under the stars.
