Staff Favorite

"Tented safaris bring back visions of an era of exploration you read about in books or see in movies, but today's tented camps are pure luxury. This Kenya safari is one of my top picks, as it gets you so close to the action and animals, without sacrificing a single bit of comfort. Don't be fooled by the word "tent", as many of these amazing accommodations are more spacious and better appointed than travelers expect. Ask me about this tented safari to Kenya!"
