Richard Branson Has a New Pad in Kenya and Everyone's Invited
WHat the luxury tents will look like
Share your next vacation with a few wild party animals...or just animals. Richard Branson has just the place for the latter, or both if you're into it! The newest addition to Branson's Virgin Limited Edition Retreats family is Mahali Mzuri in the Kenyan bushlands and it's taking reservations for a summer debut.
The safari grounds, located in the Motorogi Conservancy within the Maasai Mara ecosystem, will play host to travelers looking for the "glamping" experience while staying right on the reserve. 12 luxury tents are poised on the edge of the wildlife sanctuary, and each features an en suite bathroom, a living area, and a front porch for watching zebras and giraffes as you sip tea.
Concerned for throngs of tourists who stomp around the environment and leave a footprint? Chillax. The entire outfit is as sustainable as possible, even limiting the amount of visitors and working with the local Maasai community.
The fun starts this summer with a special promotion during the month of August for a free night with any 4- or 5-night stay. For $590 per person, double occupancy, you get all meals, drinks and game drives to local animal parks included. Mahali Mzuri is officially on our 2013 must-visit shortlist.
