Walking and Mobile Safari

4 Nights / 5 Days

Dates: 15th to 19th March, 2019 with stay at the camp on 16th & 17th March, 2019

More than two centuries after the first safari expedition brought the Europeans in direct contacts with the wilds; the lure of the experience endures. Out of the hardship of travel across difficult terrain in colonial Africa and India, came an experience of great luxury and sensuality. This ability to imbue any environment, no matter how alien, with the comfortable elements gave the travelers an exotic travel experience.
