My Travel Recommendations

I'd love to inspire you with my travel recommendations. From off-the-beaten-track lodges in Zambia's South Luangwa, to the tented camps of the Masai Mara, here are my favourites.


  • Chindeni


    Location: Zambia - South Luangwa National Park

    "This is a lovely little bush camp that’s located deep within the South Luangwa bush. The setting is absolutely beautiful, overlooking a lagoon where you can watch wildlife come to drink water. The luxury tented rooms are extremely spacious and offers a good mix between luxury and authentic safari style accommodation. This is a superb bush camp option for your authentic walking safari experience."

  • Fly-in Rwanda Gorilla Trek

    Fly-in Rwanda Gorilla Trek

    Location: Rwanda - Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda - Kigali

    "Fly in by helicopter and stay at the beautiful Volcanoes Virunga Lodge for your Rwanda gorilla safari and enjoy the most spectacular views of the Volcanoes and twin lakes."

  • Adventurer South Luangwa Mobile Walking Safari

    Adventurer South Luangwa Mobile Walking Safari

    Location: Zambia - South Luangwa National Park

    "A perfect safari to explore the Luangwa Valley on foot and in a safari vehicle. Start and end your safari in the comfort of a lodge, but the highlight will no doubt be your 5 nights on a mobile camping safari, led by some of Zambia’s top guides, offering a truly authentic safari."

  • Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge

    Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge

    Location: Uganda - Bwindi National Park

    "A small luxury lodge in the southern part of Bwindi with beautiful stone cottages as well as a family cottage. Perfect for tracking the Nkuringo gorilla family."

  • Oliver's Camp

    Oliver's Camp

    Location: Tanzania - Tarangire

    "A good mid-range tented camp within the wild Tarangire National Park... remote with great service, food and accommodation. Perfect for honeymooners and families alike."

Read what our Travellers have to say

The trip to Kenya was beyond amazing and all three lodges surpassed our initial expectations we had for them. Even though they are all Saruni lodges, they each gave us a completely different experience. The really only complaint we could possibly have is that Rick and I weren't that great on getting Isabelle covered with bug repellant the first night in Samburu and she was eaten by them but James got us some bug repellant for her that worked much better than what we had with us that we used for the rest of the trip. The tracker/guides we had were fabulous with Isabelle and catered to her needs which in return made our lifes much easier! The staff at all three lodges were fabulous, making sure our needs (primarly Isabelle's needs) were met, food was great and there isn't anything negative we can say about the trip at all. We have already decided that we will be making a trip back to Africa a yearly vacation after experiencing this last trip.
