Kamili unveils new African gems
18 September 2009
Kamili (kamili.co.uk ), a portfolio of over 40 independent lodges, camps and operators across East and Southern Africa, has unveiled four new additions.
The new gems in the Kamili portfolio include:
• Kunene Conservancy Safaris, Namibia
• Ngerende Island Lodge, Kenya
• Maliba Mountain Lodge, Lesotho
• Outstanding primate encounters at a range of Uganda properties
Kunene Conservancy Safaris, Namibia: A conservation success story owned entirely by the Himba People. Harnessing the expertise of tourism and wildlife professionals but 100% owned by the local communities, Kunene Conservancy Safaris offers visitors the chance to explore off the beaten track north west Namibia, join wildlife releases, track rhino and visit with the Himbas – whilst making a meaningful contribution to conservation.
Ngerende Island Lodge, Kenya: A boutique lodge set within the Masai Mara. Ngerende has been stylishly designed to provide the ideal safari experience where comfort, luxury and outstanding personal service combine naturally with the beautiful wilderness of the Masai Mara. Located within an oxbow on the Mara River, the lodge is surrounded on all sides by water. Perfect for discerning travellers at a surprisingly affordable price.
Maliba Mountain Lodge, Lesotho: A 5 star lodge set in this beautiful and unexplored ‘mountain kingdom’. Traditionally the realm of pony trekkers, hikers and scenery lovers, Lesotho has until now lacked more upmarket accommodation. Maliba offers an exclusive mountain retreat, located within the Tsehlanyane National Park, in a pristine sub-alpine wilderness valley. This is the ideal base for exploring the natural wonders of Lesotho, on foot, by horse or, for the more adventurous, via activities such as rock climbing.
Uganda: Described by Winston Churchill as the “pearl of Africa”, Uganda offers outstanding primate encounters. Kamili has added a range of mid-market lodges to its portfolio, aimed at travellers wanting to enjoy a reasonably priced primate safari. Covering the main safari circuit Kamili’s partner lodges are in the prime wildlife areas including Kibale, Murchison Falls, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Bwindi and Lake Mburu.
Each 4 and 5 star partner in the Kamili portfolio has been hand-picked, personally visited and appraised, in order to ensure that every one provides the same high level of service, quality and value for money. Accommodation is intimate, small scale and sensibly priced, the ‘top end of mid market’, with a handful of more luxurious properties.
