The lions and tigers may epitomize a safari, but it’s the luxurious accommodations and glamping that’ll make or break it.
Today we put together a visual guide of the sensational stays we’ll enjoy on our Kenya: Safaris and Savannahs tour.
Jambo! To rest your travel-weary feet, we’ve booked a highly regarded boutique hotel on the outskirts of Nairobi. The stunning colonial property is only an hour’s drive from Nairobi Airport, making it a convenient kick-off location to meet your fellow travellers, local guide, and host — Out Adventures’ founder, Robert Sharp! — before driving into the savannah for the remainder of your safari.
Amboseli National Park
Start each day sipping your morning brew on a private verandah as the sun creeps out from behind Mount Kilimanjaro. These exquisite luxury tents will immerse you in your African surrounds, so much so you may awake to the trumpeting of nearby elephants. All tents are enclosed to keep out critters, have ensuite bathrooms and feature private terraces with day beds. Watch the camp’s promotional video below for a clearer picture of what sets this encampment apart.
Nakuru National Park
The region’s highlight is Lake Nakuru, a shallow wetland that attracts’s Africa’s largest population of flamingo. Our third savannah slumber will be a stone’s throw from this oasis — a 15-minute drive, to be precise. The lodges here are smartly styled in Earth tones and local lumber. Our group will no doubt flock to the exceptional on-site restaurant/bar for a daily nightcap.
Masai Mara National Reserve
Last but far from least is a luxury safari tent on the outskirts of Masai Mara National Reserve. The astounding accommodations feature comfortable bedding, fresh linens, ensuite bathrooms and unforgettable views of the reserve. We’ll enjoy three unique dinners here, tasting local offerings perfectly prepared by the acclaimed kitchen team.
