When Absolute Travel luxury travel specialist, Brooke Garnett, was on a journey in Kenya and Tanzania last month, she expected to be wowed by the Big Five and wild encounters of tracking chimpanzees, but never imagined returning with one of the best selfie videos to hit the web—of a pelican no less!
At Greystoke Mahale, a luxury lodge in Tanzania, she was delighted to meet their resident Great White Pelican, “Big Bird,” an orphan who washed ashore at Lake Tanganyika. The staff took him into their care and taught him to spread his wings—literally! He is now part of the Greystoke Mahale tribe.
Like Big Bird, the Absolute Travel team sees the world differently. Travel + Leisure awarded Absolute Travel the #1 World’s Best Tour Operator in 2013 which speaks to their passion, knowledge, and expertise. Join us for the journey of a lifetime…

A stay at American Prairie Reserve’s Kestrel Camp is your chance to connect with something larger than yourself. This is truly one of our country’s greatest conservation projects—a link to the natural world on a scale that we haven’t experienced since the 19th century, and a chance to help recreate and restore the largest wilderness reserve in the lower forty-eight states.
