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.

São Tomé and Príncipe

Príncipe is an adventure. A tiny island topped by a canopy of green broken by spires of primordial rock, join us to discover this magnificent lost world, offering fantastic beaches, jungle exploration, snorkelling, fishing and birdwatching.

As the smaller, northern major island of the country of São Tomé and Príncipe lying off the west coast of Africa in the Gulf of Guinea, Príncipe has an area of 136 square kilometres (53 sq mi) and a population of approximately 7,000. The island is a heavily eroded volcano speculated to be over three million years old. Here you will discover a place that time forgot and where you feel you have stepped off the edge of the world. It is distinctively West African with a very strong Portuguese influence and this gives it a rhythm of its own which sets it apart from any experiences in East and Southern African.
