Both the Giraffe Center and David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust are hailed for helping to save Rothschild giraffe, elephant and rhino, but it’s the passions that drove two families to establish these organizations that will inspire you. Dine at Tamambo Karen Blixen, set on the author’s former homestead, before flying into the Maasai Mara where big game roam in the same super-abundance that thrilled Teddy Roosevelt. You’ll be welcomed by Maasai dancers and cool eucalyptus-scented towels. At the Fairmont Mara Safari Club, unwind on your private verandah overlooking the hippo and crocodile-filled Mara River.
