If you're looking for an authentic wildlife experience, look no further than Mahali Mzuri, a luxury safari camp within the private Olare Motorogi Conservancy in the middle of the Kenyan Bush. Just twelve remarkable, cutting-edge, canopied tents, all built to suit the local climate and terrain, sit on raised platforms with terraces where guests can enjoy front row seats to spectacular views and the abundant wildlife. Experience authentic Kenya with a visit to one of the Maasai villages in the local area, immersing yourself into their fascinating culture and learning about their traditional pastoral customs. Being in the heart of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy also means that through twice-daily game drives, your guides will be able to point out a diverse range of wildlife, in particular the topi (an antelope only native to this area), hippopotamus, warthogs and hyaenas.
Alternatively, head to the luxurious Ulusaba Private Game Reserve in South Africa for an unforgettable wildlife experience. Located in the Sabi Sand Reserve near the Kruger National Park, Ulusaba is known for the quality of its safari experience within more than 13,500 hectares of unspoiled African bushveld, with some of the most experienced rangers and trackers in the country offering guests the opportunity to search for the 'Big Five'. For an authentic South African cultural experience, visit the communities surrounding Ulusaba Private Game Reserve and enjoy traditional dancing and food-tastings whilst at the same time supporting Pride 'n' Purpose, Ulusaba's charity.
