Luxury and low-impact can indeed go together - Sanctuary Retreats proved this with its first safari camp, Olonana in Kenya, a trailblazer for responsible Eco-tourism.

Sanctuary Retreats takes pride in creating sustainable camps so portable that, if need be, they could be packed up and leave barely a trace behind. But at Olonana, living among the animals doesn't mean you can't indulge in decadence.

Your sturdy tent is amply furnished with a four-poster bed, parquet floors, and balconies overlooking the land. Just below the camp is the local watering hole, where your closest neighbors live - a pod of hippopotami.

Despite its isolation, Olonana is cleverly networked with every possible transport facility you might want to explore Kenya's diverse landscape. Of course, the standard way to get acquainted with the wildlife is a game drive with local guides, who head out into the brush daily. But if you really want to see everything, jump on board a plane or hot air balloon and visit legendary Lake Victoria or watch the wildebeest migration while hundreds of feet in the air.
