AUTHENTIC SAFARI CAMPS

Kenya can get a bad rap for being over-run with tourists - but if you know where to go it is remarkably easy to avoid the masses, and in terms of variety of mammals, birds and scenery it really takes some beating.

Easy access from Europe with multiple carriers in to Nairobi means that you can maximize your time on the ground. This could be an epic family safari for those that want to leave the crowds behind and get off the beaten track.

Starting the itinerary in the game-rich yet little visited Laikipia Plateau will give you lots of opportunity to fish, beautiful scenery and good Africa-style camping. Then head by road, under the shadow of Mount Kenya, through forest and commercial farms to the Laikipia Plateau. Laikipia probably offers the greatest freedom to do exactly what you like (assuming your guide agrees) in Africa - swim in waterfalls, fly-camp under mossie nets, meet a warrior or track wild dog on foot. A proper wildlife playground.

As you are so close we recommend that you spend your last couple of nights in big-cat (diary) county. The Maasai Mara is a spectacle to behold, but as on Laikipia greater freedom can be derived by staying on a private conservancy.

Natural High shines rays of adventurous light into some of the least explored, most exciting corners of the wider world.”

Reviews

Outstanding customer service well above the call of duty.

"Natural High arranged a trip to remember ...accommodation first class, transportation on very long road trips was excellent. Spotless . air conditioning .. food and water. Rhino and Tiger sightings to die for.. local agents left nothing to chance ... we felt in the safest hands ... then when we off grid the virus struck... Natural High and their local Agent Banyan took total control and got us from the back of beyond to UK in very worrying and uncertain times. All without us being able to do anything at our end ...outstanding attention to detail. Worth every penny."

Personal service and excellent organisation

"This was our first holiday to be organised by Natural High. We made the enquiry on New Year’s Eve for a departure in February and within a few days they had produced a wonderful-sounding itinerary in Costa Rica. There were helpful notes for packing as they seem to have someone there who has been to any chosen destination. We did do some groundwork for flights but left it to Dial-a-Flight who were also most efficient. We visited the office as it is very local to home and everyone there was cheerful and interested in our upcoming trip. We were presented with a leather file which turned out to be the most useful item en-route for all our paperwork ..... and it smelled lovely!
The holiday was one of our best ever. Not just because we saw a plethora of wildlife, but because there was always someone waiting to whisk us to another destination, be it to the airport, from the airport or a boat to a lodge etc. And they did it with great charm and humour and were always very knowledgeable about any queries we had.
For the last 8 days we had a driver/guide who was just outstanding. He was very familiar with the 3 remaining lodges where we stayed and his rapport with the other staff and guides helped to ensure that we were really well looked after. He was a skilled naturalist, had a great sense of humour and was always putting our welfare first - he made a wonderful companion for the trip.
All of the above meant that it was a really relaxing holiday so that we could maximise our time looking at the flora and fauna of Costa Rica.
We would highly recommend Natural High ...... where next?!"

Natural High nailed it again

"Sledding in Sweden was our second wonderful holiday with Natural High. From the moment you speak to them to when you get home the service and attention to detail is wonderful.
Everything is so well planned and organised that you can just sit back and really enjoy your holiday. We couldn’t recommend husky sledding in the north of Sweden more. We all agreed it was one of the best family holidays ever."
