Winter Sunshine and Safaris in Kent from One Off Places

So it seems that you don’t have to fly at vast expense to get yourself some winter sunshine and a dawn safari.  You could be forgiven for thinking that I’d gone mad, but no, it has just dawned on me that of all the fabulous regions we have One Off Places, our One Off Places in Kent are as diverse as they get.

For the romantic types, it’s all about the hand crafted treehouse, an exquisite labour of love which sleeps 2 people in luxurious surroundings, and has a bubbling hot tub at the foot of the tree.  Romance personified.

Livingstone Lodge safari tents

If you want to treat the children to a safari, without the expense, the malarial tables and the time off work, then head for a long weekend down to Livingstone Lodge or Elephant Lodge, a collection of safari tents in Port Lympne Wild Animal Park.  You’ll get the full safari experience – a tented lodge, a deck looking out onto a waterhole, and the opportunity to go out on safaris to get up close and personal with the animals.

And then we have the exclusive (but amazingly well priced) beachfront house with its very own Real Sunlight multi sensory room.  The perfect beach and summer holiday all year round – you can head a few steps out of your door to the beach on sunny days, and enjoy completely safe sunbathing in the sun room, and films in the cinema room, on rainy days.  It sleeps up to 6 people and the interior of the house is the height of luxury.
