Cinnamon Holidays in Africa
The Cinnamon Nature Trails team has been creating unforgettable memories in Sri Lanka’s natural world and it was a natural transition for them to explore similar experiences beyond the shores of Sri Lanka.
The Concept of Cinnamon Holidays was born to offer unique nature and wildlife based tours beyond the shores of Sri Lanka. The Tiger safaris conducted in India’s Ranthambhore and Bandhaavgarh national parks was a phenomenal success and the next phase was to explore Africa and its magical wilderness.
All Cinnamon holiday experiences are led by Chitral Jayatilake, Head of Cinnamon Nature Trails or Vimukthi Weeratunga, senior biologist in the team who accompanies the small teams of safari goers celebrating moments in the wild.
Both Chitral and Vimukthi being accomplished photographers, the experience is made richer by creating a flavor of almost a photographic safari with mid event workshops and photo tips shared by the experienced photographers with participants. The trips are designed to observe and enjoy what’s wild and free while grasping the tips needed to make the most of each opportunity in the wilds, and freezing them in lasting memories captured on your cameras.
The Kenya safaris gets even better when the add-on lets you fly to Rwanda to trek the cold Virunga Mountains tracking the amazing Mountain Gorilla. A short 50 minute flight from Kenya and first class arrangements are made by Nature Trails to drive you up to a mountain hideaway from which you begin trekking to see this most endangered primate which will be a humbling experience.
All safaris in Africa are conducted in private parks based in luxury camps, accompanied by Masai guides and Land cruiser jeeps drives. The experience is designed to be luxurious but tailor made to cater to your likes all in the company of men whose lives have been spent exploring the natural world.
“Await more exciting options from Nature Trails in the coming months, our focus is to celebrate what’s wild and free and help you explore this amazing world at your pace, tweaking all attention to detail and helping you make images that will change the way others admire the wilderness.” says Chitral Jayatilake.
