Also in northern Kenya, Sarara Tented Camp has a hillside setting offering wonderful views of the ancient, jagged mountains of the Matthews Range. As well as superb walking safaris and guided game drives, Sarara features a small hide, once again by a waterhole (all safari experts know that these rare sources of water exert a magnetic pull over almost all living things. Approaching quietly, you slip inside and find a comfortable spot behind one of the giant logs that make up the Sarara hide. Then, as with all such experiences, it’s a waiting game – but chances are, thanks to its ideal location, your patience won’t be tested in the slightest. Keep your kids busy counting the eyelashes on passing elephants while you compose perfect wildlife images: water droplets wetting dry skin; massive feet causing little puffs of dust; whirring wings as flocks of parched birds land to drink. At times, you’ll be just a few feet away from some of wild Africa’s most iconic wild animals, but while they must make do with only water, you’ll be drinking in the stuff that memories are made of.
