African Trips To Eco-Resorts Featured In Conde Nast Traveler

May 23, 2002. Watamu, Kenya. In an article titled “A Little Good News in Africa”, Conde Nast Traveler reports in their June, 2002 issue that “a pioneering group of East African lodges set a new safari standard.”

Gone are the years when Kenya was ruled by groups of armed bandits. The locals have taken back their land and now guests may travel freely and confidently to visit the natural wonders and wildlife of this incredible country. Local communities and ecotourism groups have formed and created projects involving white landowners, local Masai communities and the Kenya Wildlife Service. This is a model example of ecotourism for the twenty-first century, according to Conde Nast.

Eco-resorts, of Watamu, Kenya are specialists in arranging personalized safaris according to the requirements and budget of their guests. Using these eco-lodges, they plan your itinerary to include camel trekking, photography, scuba diving, archaeology, mountain climbing, hiking, tribal cultures or simply relaxing. The Eco-resorts East African based team will guide your booking choice with the latest, local information.

All of the camps lodges and resorts that Eco-resorts recommends are environmentally or community oriented, working with their local communities and environment for a better future. One such lodge is Lewa Downs, near Mount Kenya. For most of the twentieth century, it was a traditional Kenyan farm with more than 4,000 head of cattle. Lewa has been transformed into a wildlife preserve over the past ten years. A fenced area of 55,000 acres, including forest reserves and wildlife preserves, offers encounters with elephant, rhino, reticulated giraffes, gerenuk, gazelles and predators such as hyena and lions.

With Eco-resorts, your safari booking supports the local community and environment. Local orphanages, various schools, educational sponsorships, rhino sanctuaries and turtle conservation are among the causes supported by your holiday.

Explore Kenya's scenery and spot the magnificent wildlife of three completely different ecosystems: rainforests, mountains and the savannah plains. Design your dream vacation with Eco-resorts as your personal resource guide for East African eco-friendly adventure tours and safaris.
