New family digs in Baja, divine dining in Ecuador and the Mara for less

The view from Babisuri House makes it easy to slip into vacation mode
quickly upon arrival!

 What's happening this week in the Kusini Collection:



Bedrooms are large and gorgeous, and even more guests can
be accommodated in the shared living area
Todos Santos Eco Adventures: The new Babisuri House was built to blend into the surroundings at Todos Santos Eco Adventures' Los Colibris Casitas and provides beautiful, wheelchair-friendly accommodation with spectacular views. A cactus-garden roof keeps things cool indoors while keeping views intact for the Casitas. A spacious living and kitchen area is shared, while 2 large bedrooms have separate entrances and can each easily accommodate a family of 4. Guests have access to all of Los Colibris Casitas amenities including Iker's Colibris Cafe, the Yoga Sky Deck, the gardens, infinity pool and hot tub. The house can be booked out as three different rooms or for exclusive use. Note: wheelchair access will be complete in approximately 8 weeks.
Visitors to Mara Expedition Camp enjoy all of the luxuries
at an amazing rate

Albatros Travel: Great Plains' Mara Expedition Camp is tucked away on a bend in the Ntiakitiak River in the north-central section of the Masai Mara. Set just inside the main reserve, it is perfectly positioned for the migration and provides easy access to river crossing sites. Combined with traversing rights in the exclusive Mara North Conservancy, the intimate, 5-tent Mara Expedition Camp offers the best of both worlds to your travelers. With reduced rates for the remainder of 2017 (no more than $660/pp/pn, even in high season!), Albatros Travel highly recommends it for your Kenya clients.


Safari guests can participate in an exercise where animals are
immobilized and fitted with radio collars for research and
monitoring
Ultimate Safaris: For the third year running, Ultimate Safaris are finalists in the prestigious We Are Africa Innovation Awards for their 'Giraffe Conservation' safari. The safari allows guests to spend time in the field with Dr Julian Fennessey, Africa's authority on giraffe conservation, and educates travelers on topics ranging from giraffe ecology and conservation, to misconceptions regarding the highly threatened animals. The journey also focuses on a number of other conservation projects including the AfriCat Foundation and Save the Rhino Trust. The safari benefits the Giraffe Conservation Foundation. Learn more about their nomination here.

New Frontiers: Southern Africa travelers wishing to make the most of both Cape Town and Victoria Falls will be able to do it with greater ease in just a few months, as Airlink will launch direct flights beginning July 2nd. Daily flights (except Saturdays) will depart from Cape Town at 8:30 am arriving at VFA at 11:15 am. The return will depart VFA at 11:45 am and arrive in Cape Town at 2:40 pm. The 11:15 am arrival in Vic Falls allows guests to enjoy an afternoon activity in the Falls or even Hwange. New Frontiers can book these flights for clients combining Cape Town and Vic Falls/Zimbabwe.


Did we mention the gorgeous views from Gorges?
Imvelo Safari Lodges: Zimbabwe has been topping hot lists for travel in 2017, and recently Africa.com published an article featuring its top places to visit, including Imvelo Safari Lodges' Gorges Lodge. "It's an absurdly easy association to call the fantastic Gorges Lodge... 'gorgeous,' except it really is... Each of the lodge's individual rooms is delicately perched right on the precipice of the gorge, built into the rocky terrain with an elevated wooden deck." Visitors can escape the hustle and bustle of Vic Falls town and are guaranteed an idyllic stay with magnificent views!

Chef Alvaro's new tasting menu will make your foodie
clients swoon!
Tropic Ecuador: Cotopaxi NP draws adventurous travelers, and visitors are welcomed with warm Andean hospitality. Tropic Ecuador's Chilcabamba Mountain Lodge raised the bar by welcoming renowned chef Alvaro Reinoso into the kitchen. Chef Alvaro cooks with local products using techniques mastered while working at some of the world's best restaurants. He has created 'Nuna,' a 10-course menu designed to showcase the best Ecuadorian ingredients to please the palates of mountaineers and gourmands alike.
