Cottars 1920’s Camp, Luxury camping safaris, Kenya
Luxury camping may well have originated in Africa, when adventurous hunters would spend months at a time on their own migration across the continent, in pursuit of game, accompanied by a retinue of staff and all manner of home comforts. The tradition continues into modern day, although now guests ‘hunt’ with their cameras.
There’s a wonderful range of luxury camping safaris on offer from across Africa, from contemporary-styled camps to those that will take you back in time to the age of the adventurer. We’d like to share with you some of our favourites.
