Daily Pampering: Live out your “Out of Africa” fantasy

Sanctuary Olonana
Was it really only 35 years ago that Robert Redford, Meryl Streep and Sydney Pollack captured our hearts in the Academy Award winning Out of Africa?

Sanctuary OlonanaAnswer: Yes.

To celebrate this notable anniversary of an instant classic, Sanctuary Retreats, a resort group with luxurious destinations all across Africa, is hosting a special package at Sanctuary Olonana, a safari camp in Kenya — very near to where Out of Africa‘s Masai Mara scenes were filmed.

From June 1 until December 15, 2010, guests can request the all-inclusive Out of Africa Package, which includes:

  • Safari-style luxury tented accommodations
  • Game drives (from the Big Five to spectacular wildebeest migration, Sanctuary Olonana is in the heart of Kenya’s big game country)
  • Three meals daily
  • Out of Africa picnic and al fresco spa treatment at the famous film site in homage to the memorable hair washing scene of Karen by Denys
  • A traditional bush dinner with outdoor Out of Africa film screening under the stars at banks of the Mara River

There can’t be a more literal way to live out your Out of Africa fantasy. Additionally, guests staying for four or more nights between June 20 and September 30 will receive a free hot air balloon ride followed by a complimentary champagne breakfast (a $460 value).

Rates for the “Out of Africa” all-inclusive package start at $389 per person per night. Click here to book.
