If you are looking for a unique experience on a four masted sailing ship, this is for you. No broadway shows, or mega floating theme parks, just the real experience of sailing the Mediterranean. The ship holds about 125 guests plus crew. You are able to interact with the crew and even lend a hand in the daily operation of the ship. Few if any children under the age of 15, and 75% of the guests were from countries other than the USA. We had a wonderful experience on the ship and during the small group land tours.

This was an awesome sailing ship that held 170 people from all over the world. Loved the fact that it never used the motor but it was there in case of emergency. And it didn't overwhelm you with climbing walls, spas, 30 restaurants, gambling, etc. etc that the huge moving hotel ships provide. A truly unique experience !

      About Elite Luxury Kenya

      Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

      Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
