Luxury travel Kenya is on the up again and we always get very excited when we hear of amazing special offers in our beloved East Africa, particularly when these come from Asilia Africa who we can rely on to provide luxury camps with outstanding service and guiding. Our team at The Luxury Safari Company will keep you up to date with all the news as we receive it, and so offering some of the best luxury travel options throughout Kenya, all currently at some of the most competitive and economic pricing in Africa.
Within the luxury Kenya safari industry some of our favourite safari camps have a stay 4 pay 3 offers for travel before the 30th June 2016 (some of these are described below) – this can work as a combination or as a stand alone special. This is something we feel should be taken advantage of and we hope that President Obama’s recent visit to Nairobi will help boost the growing confidence in luxury travel to this extraordinary and diverse country. The wildebeest migration is taking place right now in the Masai Mara and exhilarating river crossings are being seen by some of our lucky clients on a daily basis.
Rekero Camp (one of the best luxury travel options in Kenya) is situated overlooking an ancient animal crossing point on the Talek River nestling under huge deciduous trees. The sound of hippos grunting and splashing in the river below is a sound very particular to Africa and one that never leaves you. The luxurious en suite tents offer river views and Rekero prides itself on its warm hospitality and outstanding guides who will ensure you get the very best out of your stay here.
Both Naboisho Camp and Encounter Mara Camp are situated within an exclusive private conservancy which demonstrates a shining example of conservation and communities working together, something that is currently the foundation of luxury travel and safaris throughout Kenya. We love these conservancies bordering the Masai Mara as we feel they offer spectacular game viewing without the crowds. Very often you can follow cheetah looking to hunt, lionesses moving their cubs and herds of elephants alone with your guide. Walking in the bush is another special feature of these private conservancies.
Naboisho Camp has just nine luxurious en suite tents with both indoor and outdoor showers, and for those discerning travellers it is certainly a winner within Kenya. The main dining and sitting area has a wooden deck overlooking a water hole thus providing the perfect spot to read a book or just watch the wildlife. Lunch is often set out under a tree for the perfect al fresco experience.
Encounter Mara is set in an equally lovely area of the conservancy and the huge tents are well spaced out offering a high degree of privacy and some outstanding views of the bush. It is a regular occurrence here to see a cheetah strolling past. Walking back to your tent along the meandering, beautifully planted paths over little wooden bridges is all part of the special experience here. There is also a hide overlooking the river-bed which allows guests to while away time waiting for the game to appear. Encounter Mara is also offering a stand alone offer of a 3rd night free for travel before 30 April 2016.
Another very special offer which is being extended at one of our favourite camps in all of Africa is 3 nights for 2 at Cottars 1920’s Camp which is applicable in July, October, November and until the 20th December. This iconic Kenyan camp offers a truly authentic safari experience on a private concession in the Masai Mara. Though remaining true to its historic roots, modern touches such as a spring fed swimming pool add to the outstanding experience you will get here.
