There’s no need to rush when you’re visiting one of the most beautiful places in the world. As the locals say “Pole pole… [slowly, slowly]” 
 
01
Ride In A Hot Air Balloon 
Drift across the Masai Mara at dawn as the sun starts to climb into the sky. Keep your camera lens poised on the land below that’s filled with elephants, lions, zebras and during the migration – wildebeest. When you touch down you can pore over your images as the Governors’ Camp team prepare your champagne breakfast.

Walk With A Warrior Through The Bush

Want to get up close and personal to the action? Then join a Samburu or Maasai warrior for a walk through the Ol Lentille reserve in Kenya. Not only will you have a chance to spy elephant herds and wild dog packs, but you will also be able to hear stories first-hand about this ancient land.

03
Catch The Blue Train 

Go back in time as you take The Blue Train from Cape Town to Pretoria. Enjoy a glass of South African wine or if it takes your fancy, a Montecristo Havana cigar as the train rumbles through the vast plains. Enjoy a stop at the historic town of Matjiesfontein or if you want to add a few sparklers to your collection, the diamond-mining town or Kimberley.

Sleep Under The Stars

You could rush back to your villa or you embrace the quiet life and sleep out under the stars. Ask your Lightfoot Travel Designer to arrange for you a true wilderness experience – a night sleeping in the bush. During the day, you will enjoy a walking safari to your pop-up camp, then you will hunker down in your sleeping bag in the bush. You will wake to fresh air and a breakfast cooked over a camp fire. Available at camps in Kenya and Tanzania.

Take A Biplane Flight

With a land that has movie location looks, it should be no surprise that an actual Hollywood prop can be found within it shores. The biplane that took Robert Redford and Meryl Streep into the clouds during Out of Africa is now a resident at Segera Retreat in Laikipia. What’s more exciting is that you too can now enjoy a ride in the yellow biplane across the bush. Paparazzis at the ready…
