Exciting New Developments in Kenya

November 10 2014


 

Outposts Travel Africa would highly recommend Kenya as a destination to travel to. It is a most beautiful country characterised by huge panoramas and is vast, geographically contrasting and culturally diverse. Kenya is famous for its outstanding array of wildlife in the many renowned game reserves.

Gamewatchers Safaris Malewa Wildlife Lodge and Kigio Wildlife Camp are located in 3,500 acres of pristine wilderness of the Kigio Wildlife Conservancy, between Naivasha and Nakuru which is dedicated to the preservation of over 100 indigenous plant species, 200 birds and 40 mammals including the endangered Rothschild's giraffe.

Malewa Wildlife Lodge
The striking Malewa Wildlife Lodge is set within a glorious Yellow Acacia woodland along the Malewa River which attracts over 250 species of exotic birds. Once a rudimentary lodge, it has been transformed into a stunning luxury eco-lodge incorporating a dramatic architectural style and traditional African building methods and concepts.  Accommodation is in 5 individual and traditional-styled buildings with 6 bedrooms (one is a 2-storey family cottage with 2 rooms) and 4 stunning river suites on stilts (including one honeymoon suite with outdoor bath), all offering spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms within an acacia forest filled with wildlife.

 

Kigio Wildlife Camp

Only 1km from Malewa Wildlife Lodge, Kigio Wildlife Camp is a superb all-suite camp surrounded by a beautiful Yellow-fever tree woodland overlooking the Malewa River. The camp is constructed from sustainable pine-wood, local earth from the conservancy, traditional thatch provided by the surrounding community and canvas panels- there has been minimal usage of cement and steel and the environment has been carefully preserved during its construction. Power is provided by solar panels. Accommodation is in eleven spacious suites and one 2-bedroom family suite, each built on deck and containing a large bedroom and sitting area, a private bathroom with flush toilet, shower and balcony.

A loyal guest at Porini Lion Camp who came for his 4th visit to the camp in October was certainly not disappointed!  Here's what he had to say:

Leopard kill in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy 

"We stayed for 7 nights and were taken to a different area each day - some of which were completely new to us.  The game viewing was fantastic 'wall to wall' lions (with young also); cheetahs and leopards with cubs; and not forgetting elephants, buffalo, impala, eland, zebra, tommies, hippo, and lots more.  The accommodation is superb, the food lovely, and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Our guides - Jackson and Gerard - were brilliant, their knowledge, eyesight, and skills are unbelievable.

Would we return? - already planning the next trip!!"
