Rekero Mara Camp
Those with a taste for bush luxury can choose between a large selection of exclusive tented camps set community or private concessions bordering the Masai Mara and Amboseli or on the Laikipia Plateau. Typically these lodges combine classic ‘Out of Africa’-style accommodation with top-notch food, imported wines, well-trained staff and a range of expertly guided activities including game drives, bush walks and possibly night drives or horseback safaris. The coast and main cities also have a few boutique hotels that combine five-star service and amenities with an individualistic decor and exclusive feel. Distances and roads being what they are, the most comfortable way to travel on a luxury holiday would to take advantage of the scheduled and chartered light aircraft flights that connect Nairobi, Mombasa, Malindi and all the main safari destinations. Any good tour operator can put together a package of this sort for those who don’t want the bother of arranging it themselves.
