Downtime on safari

 
A safari is a blend of activity and relaxation in a series of spectacular places. You will be out encountering the wildlife early morning and late afternoon when the animals are most active. Between those times you will relax in the comfort of your safari lodge. But don’t worry, there will be plenty of activities to occupy restless children; many lodges also have Wi-Fi.

The family photographers will be excited to examine photos they have captured. All camps and lodges that we use have battery charging facilities and you will be able to get to work sorting and editing your photographs. Many guides are excellent wildlife photographers and will be pleased to help.

A tradition of safari life is the creation of delectable food in the remotest places. It starts with the aroma of freshly baked bread wafting through with the first glimmer of dawn. Then you can look forward to hearty breakfasts, crisp fresh salads and fruit. Lunch, then homemade cakes before your afternoon safari and later a sundowner with canapés. A three-course dinner is the finale, maybe served as a surprise out in the bush by starlight.

Many lodges have a pool and at some you will find a private pool on your own deck. Some lodges have a special family suite with its own pool, the option for private dining, a private guide and villa-style accommodation. You will find a lounge, a library and there is always a guide to chat with. The safari lodges that we use are miracles of comfort deep in the wilds. Just let us know the kind of accommodation you would prefer.

If you’d like to begin or end your safari on the beach, we can fly you down to Kenya’s Indian Ocean shoreline. There you’ll find another dazzling array of places to stay. You could keep it small scale and stay at a beach lodge, or for more facilities there are several good hotels. Or you may prefer that we take you further out, maybe to Zanzibar or even a private island, hidden like a gem in the deep blue ocean.
