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.

 

  • Kenya's Amboseli, Lewa & Mara

    09 Day Fly-in Luxury Kenya Safari

    Location: Kenya - Masai Mara, Kenya - Amboseli National Park, Kenya - Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Kenya - Mara North Conservancy
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    "This Kenya fly-in safari includes superb big 5 game viewing, the great migration in season and views of the two highest mountains in Africa – Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya – whilst staying at good safari camps and lodges."

  • Fly-in Rwanda Gorilla Trek

    Fly-in Rwanda Gorilla Trek

    Location: Rwanda - Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda - Kigali
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    "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."

  • Kenya's Amboseli, Meru & Mara

    Kenya's Amboseli, Meru & Mara

    Location: Kenya - Meru, Kenya - Masai Mara, Kenya - Amboseli National Park
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    "You will experience all the highlights of Kenya on this luxury, but still affordable fly-in safari – excellent big 5 game viewing, the best views of Mount Kilimanjaro and the local Kenyan culture whilst staying at a typical African safari tented lodge in Amboseli, beautifully romantic cottages in Meru and Out of Africa true Hemingway style tented camp in the Masai Mara."

  • Uganda Fly-In Gorillas, Chimps & Wildlife

    Uganda Fly-In Gorillas, Chimps & Wildlife

    Location: Uganda - Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda - Bwindi National Park, Uganda - Entebbe
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    "This combined road and air safari is packed with adventure and experiences in Uganda… you’ll track chimpanzees around the Kyambura Gorge area, enjoy wildlife game drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park, do a boat cruise on the Kazinga channel to spot animals and birds, look for the tree-climbing lions in Ishasha and track the mountain gorillas in Bwindi Forest – while staying at comfortable lodges with great locations."

  • Adventurer South Luangwa Mobile Walking Safari

    Adventurer South Luangwa Mobile Walking Safari

    Location: Zambia - South Luangwa National Park
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    "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."

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.
