Executive Room | Breakfast | 1 night
One of the best properties in Nairobi, this colonial boutique hotel is located in the suburbs and makes for a relaxing haven. There are just 45 rooms spread across six buildings, and the emphasis is all about relaxation pre or post safari. Overlooking the nearby Ngong Hills we particularly like the outdoor patio which makes for a relaxing sundowner spot. The rooms are spacious with huge baths and the hotel offers a brasserie to while away the hours in.
Tent | Full board game package | 3 nights
This luxury property offers only a handful of tents and a house and a cottage - it concentrates on providing the most personal experience and service it can. Located on a 28 km squared private area of the Lewa Conservancy it is situated in Laikipia, Kenya. Set on beautiful lawns, this property looks on to a watering hole which means animal sightings are in abudance and can be achieved with minimum effort. The property marries luxury and style yet feels comforting and welcome at all times.
Angama Mara, Kenya
Tented Suite | Full board game package | 3 nights
This property's location is simply stunning and was made famous for being where 'Out of Africa' was filmed - the sunrises and sunsets are majestic to behold. There are 30 tents spilt into two areas, and with a modern design they bring something a little different to the tried and tested safari aesthetic. Guests benefit from their own private butler and also the non-traditional timing of the game drives. Leave your blinds up as often as you can to soak in the views.
