Glamping It Up In Africa

September 28, 2013 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

While African chic is all the rage on the world’s catwalks, glamping is all the roar on the Serengeti plains.  And whereas an African safari offers some of the most rewarding experiences that any traveler could wish for, an exclusive SkySafari option from the Elewana Collection in East Africa elevates the glamorous camping experience, literally, to new heights.

If, in the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Life is a journey, not a destination,” SkySafari is all about ensuring exemplary and unfettered access to the wildlife spectacular that is Africa during each stage of the journey.  With SkySafari, how you travel is as significant as where you stay, and both the journey and accommodation form an integral part of the definitive African experience.

Adventurers travel in style onboard SkySafari’s executive class Grand Cessna Caravan plane between the parks and conservation areas in the air and in custom fitted vehicles on the ground.  The seven-night, eight-day journey takes travelers across Northern Tanzania’s most iconic locations with unique accommodations at four Elewana Collection lodges and camps.

In the Serengeti guests are in for the pinnacle of glamorous camping in tented rooms that pay homage to the mobile camps of the 1930’s, all whilst being strategically positioned to offer superlative access to the extraordinary annual Great Migration.  On the edge of an elephant migration corridor they step up to luxurious new heights in tree houses perched high up above the baobab trees with unmatched views of the largest herds of elephants on the continent.  And on a huge coffee estate in the hills south of the Ngorongoro Crater, a superlative manor house that blends East African hospitality with old world Afro-European architecture and decor offers the perfect grandiose rest stop on the safari trial.

A SkySafari Plus option offers additional nights at the Elewana Collection’s boutique beach hotel on the tropical island ofZanzibar to conclude an extraordinary safari adventure with a bespoke beach holiday.  A rarity in the world of luxury boutique hotels, the Kilindi Zanzibar haven was originally designed for Benny Andersson, one of the members of 1980’s pop sensation ABBA, and is as unique in character and design as its idyllic locale.

The SkySafari by Elewana packages include all private flights between the Elewana Collection properties and private airport transfers, accommodation, laundry, meals, drinks, game drives and bush walks.
