The Classic Safari Company launches Africa’s Ultimate To Do List
The Classic Safari Company has created Africa’s Ultimate to Do List. From barefoot chic, spas and wellness retreats to safaris on horseback, on foot or by water, this is ‘the Ultimate List’ for those who wish to get off the beaten track in consummate style.
There are over eighty pages portraying Africa’s most unique and delectable experiences including:
Loisaba Star Beds, Laikipia Kenya. Imagine four poster beds African style on raised platforms with only the boundless equatorial sky for a ceiling. These beds are found overlooking a waterhole or on the banks of the Ewaso N’giro River. Sleep under a million stars and awake to elephants swimming below with gazelle waiting their turn on the banks. You reach your star bed either on foot, horse, camel or by vehicle.
You might prefer the secret paradise of the Mahale Mountains in Tanzania. Here the jungle-draped peaks soar over 2,000 metres above the azure waters and hidden coves of Lake Tanganyika. The mountains themselves are home to one of the last remaining wild chimpanzee populations. Track these primates with your guide and discover a verdant forest of rare birds, butterflies and exotic plants.
Live it up in the Owners Cottage of the Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate. Listed as one of ‘The 10 most Fabulous Villas in the World’ by Harpers Bazaar magazine this cottage is nestled in the lush vineyards of the Franschhoek Valley, South Africa. Sample South Africa’s finest food and wine whilst gazing over the rugged mountains beyond.
Julie McIntosh, Director, said, “The Ultimate to Do List” is for everyone, the voyeurs, the armchair travellers and the A type personalities who want to tick off everything that Africa can offer. Turning through the pages is almost as pleasurable as sipping a G&T on the savannah at sundown. The Classic Safari Company excels in bespoke travel so we can mix and match all the pieces of this African tapestry to deliver you your Ultimate safari.
