The Masaai Mara Na­tional Re­serve, Kenya

Friday - - Travel -

The sway Meryl Streep and Robert Red­ford’s academy-award win­ning film Out of Africa holds over our imag­i­na­tions of what Kenya should be is un­de­ni­able. Even Tay­lor Swift suc­cumbed to it in her Wildest Dreams mu­sic video, so how can mere mor­tals re­sist the ex­pec­ta­tions of epic ro­mance and breath­tak­ing sa­van­nahs? Reel life de­sires man­i­fest into re­al­ity at the Angama Mara sa­fari lodge perched on the Great Rift Val­ley overlooking the Ma­sai Mara game re­serve – it’s the same lo­ca­tion where the movie was filmed and the lodge of­fers an Out of Africa ex­pe­ri­ence. The pack­age will see cou­ples es­corted by a Masaai nat­u­ral­ist and pro­vides blan­kets, chairs and a pic­nic bas­ket full of scrummy food, be­fore re­turn­ing to spa­cious Tented Suites with ceil­ing-to-floor glass win­dows.

From Dh4,400 per night per guest is in­clu­sive of guided sa­faris, meals and Wi-Fi. Email en­ or visit
