Seeing Africa to Save Africa: Conservation Safaris

Going on a conservation safari, or eco-tour, in Africa may bring you one step closer to saving the earth before it’s too late. And companies, such as Great Plains Conservation, believe that seeing Africa’s primordial wonder and knowing about its corresponding destruction, may be the best way to drive home the reality that our world is in peril but may still be saved.

MaraPlainsCamp-Landscape-GreatPlainsConservation-3To that end, Great Plains Conservation along with a few other tour operators that host travel to Africa recently took steps to outline how governments can limit wanton hunting and trade in Africa – a move promoted when the South Africa government recently announced that a quota of 800 skeletons of captive-bred lions would be allowed for export annually. According to Great Plains Conservation and the other signatories, any such legal trade mechanism can open up channels for traders to launder illegally obtained bones from wild animals.


In fact, it is no secret that more than 1,000 rhinos were poached in South Africa last year, for the fourth straight year. Rhino poaching in South Africa has been growing exponentially – only 36 such poaching incidents in the region were reported in 2006.

Elephants, too, coveted for their ivory tusks, have been disappearing from the African plains at an alarming rate – decreasing by some 111,000 in the past quarter century.


The “Glamping” Solution

Great Plains Safaris takes visitors who want to experience the great nature of Africa before it disappears deep into the wilds of Kenya and Botswana on immersive “glamping” trips that leave barely a footprint.

experiences6Several of the camps are tents in the wilderness that, when picked up and moved, would not betray the presence of humans in those spaces at all. That means the groups of between 10 and 20 people (sharing) are for that time as much a natural part of the landscape as the animals and local people that live there. Items that can be recycled, buried or burned without harm are treated appropriately. Energy systems include biogas for cooking fuel, as well as solar power and grey water recycling at the various camps.


In Botswana, Great Plans Conservation runs Duba Expeditions Camp, Duba Plains Camp, Selinda Camp, Selinda Explorers Camp, Selinda Adventure Travel, Zafara Camp and Zafara Dhow Suites. In Kenya, it will be ol Donyo Lodge, Mara Expedition Camp and Mara Plains Camp. Each is extraordinary in its own right and distinctive in its offerings. For instance, Zafara Dhow Suites on the eastern edge of the private 320,000-acre Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana offers a single shelter of two bedrooms that can fit a maximum of four adults (and a child, sharing, if needed).

ZarafaDhowSuites-Camp-GreatPlainsConservation-11The experience is fully inclusive of all activities, meals, park fees, beverages and spirits and comes with morning and afternoon game viewing in an open 4×4 vehicle, guided walks and cruising on the Zibadianja Lagoon on “HES Zib” when water levels permit. There is also an open-air exercise space with a spin bike a cool inviting plunge pool, and in-room massages are available.


Find here a certain early 20th century “villa” elegance as each bedroom has its own fireplace and huge copper baths tubs looking onto views of the plains and lagoon. A certain civilized style contrasts with the raw surroundings for a perfect blend of quiet, privacy, isolation and pampering.

The Kindness of Strangers

For all its permanence, the camp brings environmentally friendly methods used in the construction and employs energy from Zarafa’s pioneering “solar farm” of more than 150 205-watt solar panels. Drinking water flows through a UV filtration system, eliminating the need for disposable plastic water bottles.


Similarly, the ol Donyo Lodge, on the private 275,000-acre Mbirikani Group Ranch in southeastern Kenya (edging Tsavo East and Amboseli National Parks, adjacent to Chyulu Hills National Park) is a permanent construction from natural materials. Rain water is captured and stored and shower water is recycled and filtered before ending up at the water holes in front of the lodge, which attract a variety of wildlife in this semi-arid region.


At Zarafa, energy comes from the sun and is stored in batteries. Solid waste is transported and recycled and biogas converted from kitchen waste supports the heating and cooking.

Great Plains Conversation leases the sites for its camps from the 4,000-strong Maasai community that own the 275,000-acre Mbirikani Group Ranch. A per person conservancy fee goes directly to this community to ensure the preservation of the ranch and the protection of the wild animals that live there.


The lodge was redesigned in 2008 along a hillside that looks onto Mt. Kilimanjaro in the distance. The lodge sleeps a maximum of 16 people comfortably in ten guest rooms where no two spaces are alike. In fact, eight of the ten private cottages have their own swimming pool. All guest rooms offer the unusual “star beds” feature where a removable roof lets the stars shine down on guests while they sleep, enhancing the deep connection with earth and place. In-room massages top off a perfect day for a nominal extra.


The wealth of activities available at ol Donyo are generous and rare for a safari. Guests can have their early morning and late afternoon game drives, and they can also go on guided bushwalks, have a bush breakfast or dinners, take a night drive, go hiking, horse riding (for all guests, novice to professional), try mountain biking, animal tracking, and participate in conservation and community out-reach programs.


Conversely, a stay at Mara Expedition Camp will be within a site of five tents that can house a maximum of ten adult guests. All items, from dining, to cocktails to game drives are included in this clearing at the banks of the Ntiakitiak River. Balloon rides, park fees and flights are extra.


In northern Botswana’s 320,000-acre Selina Reserve, the Selinda Camp rests on the banks of the eastern Selinda Spillway, as remote and beautiful as it gets. It’s an ancient waterway that weaves through the far-reaches of the vast Okavango Delta and links with the Linyanti wetlands in the west. There, it is possible to accommodate a maximum of 18 guests sharing in 9 large tented villas. The land here is home to some of the largest herds of elephant and buffalo left in Southern Africa. Also find the endangered African wild dog – lycaon pictus – or “painted wolf”.


Guests can go on early morning and late afternoon/early evening game drives in open jeeps. They will also enjoy guided bush walks, and river safaris when water levels permit. In-room massages can be arranged. Children aged six and over are welcome.

The new Duba Expedition Camp offers adventure and serenity in the Okavango Delta. The area is the site for many wildlife documentaries by National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence Dereck and Beverly Joubert and is one of only two camps on the 77,000-acre private concession. The camp offers six expedition-style light and airy canvas tents on slightly raised decking. Each tent has views of the surrounding floodplain plus a small desk and private verandah from which to observe it all and record one’s thoughts. For all its romantic remoteness, modern conveniences are remembered. Tents come with en suites flush toilets, water basins and an indoor shower.


The Luxe Touch

Great Plains Conservation camps, Zarafa, Mara Plains and ol Donyo are members of Relais & Chateaux and National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World. And, in step with National Geographic, photography is in focus for guest experiences. High-powered canon 5D and 7D cameras are available at some camps for guests use and guests at all camps can rent special professional camera equipment. Specialist photographer-guides are available (with advance notice) to meet guests and help them work the equipment and improve their photography skills. All reservations are individual, made according to guest wants and time lines. Great Plains Conservation can arrange for all bush flights, park permits and extras, whether requests are for one night or several.


At Great Plans Conservation, seeing is believing; seeing is saving; seeing is making conservation possible, one camp at a times.

Exotic Locations for Luxury Vacations: Six Senses Resorts

Six Senses Resorts, legendary for their out-of-the-ordinary vacation lairs located in some of the world’s most scenic and remote spots, is taking vacation time to the next level with new resorts in the Seychelles, China, Portugal and Bhutan.

Yoga_pavillion_[6722-MEDIUM]Six Senses has a dozen resorts and counting in such exotic locations as the Maldives, Oman, Vietnam and Thailand. And, later this year resorts will also open in Cambodia, Fiji and Bali. The Seychelles adds its imprint to the list as Six Senses Zil Pasyon just opened last fall on the private island of Félicité. The island measures just a tad over a square mile but has been the destination target of many a renown personality – former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Richard Branson, and even Malaysian royalty.


Six Senses Zil Pasyon

At Six Senses Zil Pasyon, there are 28 one-bedroom and two two-bedroom villas ranging in size from 2,150 square feet to 5,380 square feet, each with its own private pool and all sitting on the rocky cliffs with splendid views of the Indian Ocean. Each villa has an expansive private sun deck with outdoor dining, a private wine collection and an ice machine. A dedicated 24-hour butler looks after each guest.

Guests can soak in the main pool by the beach and enjoy the waves splashing up against the infinity views. They can also relax in the hammam and sauna and have massage treatments infusing local herbs and botanic traditions in a full service 7,000 square foot spa that includes a luscious saltwater pool. Enjoy yoga in the mornings, a manicure in the afternoon, in between head to La Digue, the smallest of the three main inhabited islands, for cycling or have a guided tour of the Vallee de Mai, the UNESCO World Heritage Site in the heart of Praslin National Park.


Getting there: Six Senses Zil Pasyon is located 30 nautical miles northeast of Mahe (location of Seychelles International Airport – SEZ) and is accessed by a 20-minute helicopter flight.

Six Senses Douro Valley

Six Senses Douro Valley opened in the summer of 2015 to celebrate Portugal’s fine wine traditions in an unspoiled natural landscape that is one of the world’s oldest wine regions. Wine infuses every aspect of a Six Senses Douro Valley experience, whether guests are sampling it, making it, sipping it in a fantasy meal of pairings and small plates or enjoyong a glass after an inspired spa treatment.

dourovalleyA preserved 19th century manor got a makeover from New York’s Clodagh Design with stunning blue and white accents breathed through 18th century azulejo tiles, as well as granite floors, walls of gold leaf and ceilings of aromatic cork.

The hotel’s 57 rooms, suites and villas bring earthy tones in oak floors, gold textured walls and bright picture windows. It all comes with 21st century tech: room service that is ordered via a smartphone, that also operates the lighting, window coverings and TV. Locally made lemongrass soaps maintain a citrus scent that permeates.

Swimming_pool_with_model_[6223-LARGE]Dining is naturally in focus with local organic picks from the garden that find their way into daily menus and cocktails. Try the house cured trout tartare, pickles from the organic garden, and a medley of organic vegetables served with parmiggiano, mozzerela, dry fruits and port wine sauce.

The spa is the star at most Six Senses and Douro Valley is no exception. A union of nature and Portuguese tradition wedded to the elements of water, stone and wood, the spacious Six Senses Spa Douro Valley offers 10 treatment rooms. There is a heated indoor pool with water jets, an outdoor pool and refreshment bar plus a gym with the latest exercise equipment and professional guidance. Six Senses speciality treatments and multi-day programs are featured together with locally inspired therapies, some of which are grape and citrus fruit based.


Getting there: Six Senses Douro Valley is located near the historic town of Lamego, a 60 minute drive from Porto and the Porto International Airport (OPO).


Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain

Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain opened in 2015 in Magical Chengdu near two riveting UNESCO Heritage sites. It takes only five minutes to drive to the base of the lush and thickly forested Qingcheng Mountain, replete with ancient Taoist shrines. In another 20 minutes guests are at the roiling waters of the Dujiangyan Irrigation Scheme, a site that dates back to 256 BC. The hotel sits about 40 miles or an hour’s drive from the bustling modern city of Chengdu.


Amid the sweeping Chinese roofs set up like a placid Sichuan village, Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain offers 122 guest rooms and suites that run from semi-detached quarters in duplex villas with balconies and verandas, to courtyard suites, and garden and pool villas. All is designed with authentic antiques or in traditional Sichuan styles.

For those with business to conduct or events to plan, the Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain is an unusual venue with hidden opportunities. Last summer it unveiled the 4,500 square foot multi-purpose Qing You Hall that can hold galas for up to 300 sitting guests or for 480 in a cocktail event. The pillar-free ballroom has a backdrop featuring Qing Cheng Mountain and 2.5 acres of organic gardens in the foreground.

Spa-goers will enjoy the18,400 square foot Six Senses Spa. Beyond the calming waterfalls it has 10 treatment rooms where locally-inspired massages and wellness therapies are offered along with plus yoga and tai chi classes.


Getting there: Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain is about an hour’s drive from Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport (CTU). Transfer arrangements can be made at the time of booking – and a clean-burning Tesla will be providing the transportation.


Six Senses Bhutan

Six Senses will be offering yet another exotic location for visitors when Six Senses Bhutan opens later this year. The new resort project in the Himalayan kingdom brings together five satellite resorts in separate locations under the Six Senses Bhutan umbrella. The project is especially significant as the Kingdom of Bhutan remains a rather isolated and ancient culture where local populations have been mostly unexposed to outside world. In fact, the people of Bhutan had no interaction with westerners until the 1950s. It has been known throughout the world as possibly the happiest place on earth by cultural anthropologists.


Six Senses will bring just 82 guest suites and villas to Bhutan, distributed between five intimate lodges located in Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey, Bumthang and Paro. Each venue is themed according to the motifs of the area, whether forest or city or farmhouse or mountain perch, using the local woods, stones and handicrafts from each area.


Bhutan, some 15,000 square miles bordered by Tibet, and the far reaches of Northern India, is mostly a land of steep mountains, monasteries and astounding beauty.

Getting there: Fly into Paro International Airport (PBH) from Kathmandu, New Delhi, Singapore and Bangkok.
