Accommodation Spotlight in Kenya…

The vast and diverse continent of Africa has a reputation for delivering a range of Safari experiences. The African Travel Specialists are passionate about offering new and unique experiences to our clients. It is with much excitement that we bring to you our accommodation spotlight in Kenya.

African Travel Specialist George returned from Kenya later this year describing this months accommodation spotlight in Kenya as a “truly authentic safari experience”. Our MD and African Travel Specialists Richard refers to it as “luxury camping at its’ finest.”

So what are you waiting for I hear you ask…. Introducing this months Accommodation Spotlight property… ENAIDURA MOBILE CAMP

Enaidura Camp

Owned and operated by local Kenyan award winning guides Paul Kirui and Johnson Ping’ua (known as Ping), Enaidura Mobile Camp is perfectly positioned in the Masai Mara ecosystem to experience the Great Migration as it moves into the region from July through to October.

Regardless of the time of year, this camp offers extraordinary wildlife. October saw African Travel Specialist, George experience 3 weeks on safari in Kenya.  There were many highlights, but having spotted 11 lions and 2 cheetahs just transferring from the airstrip to the camp, the game rich and newly opened Enaidura Luxury Mobile Camp was a stand out.

The Safari Experience

Enaidura is known as a classic camp that keeps you connected to the bush at all times.

Personal service and fantastic meals are a welcome part of the camp experience and on par with high-end permanent luxury safari camps.

Critical to the safari experience is the flexibility to pack meals to go, as well as tailor in camp meal times completely around your game viewing.  Game drives are the focus at Enaidura. Especially designed, open-sided vehicles deliver an intimate wildlife experience.  Each party has a private guide and vehicle so the schedule and game viewing priorities are your call.

This months accommodation spotlight in Kenya, Enaidura Camp is available as an exclusive private camp for just your party or on a share basis.  Parties staying on a share camp basis still receive their own private guide and vehicle.
