The indigenous tropical flora provides the perfect habitat for birds and primates. Animals on the island include monkeys, baboons, bush babies, avifauna, small antelope, brightly-colored butterflies and many other creatures. Chale offers luxurious spas and relaxation centres, as well as ample opportunities for scuba diving, kayaking, and other watersports.

Thank you very much to Alex who organised the whole trip to the Masai Mara including a comfortable stay at the Deerpark Luxury Hotel. Everything went smoothly! Fam.Karlsson from Sweden
Mutuma and the team at Designer Safari could not have made the planning of this safari easier for us. The pricing and included aspects of the trip were clear and presented upfront; the communication was transparent and continous; and the chosen safari spot, &Beyond Kichwa Tembo was perfect. I couldn't recommend this team enough!
Everything was handled, the overnight lodging was great, food fantastic, pace was our own and the locals made the trip, both human and animal kingdom
