KENYA'S MOST EXCLUSIVE TENTED CAMPS FEATURED ON 13-DAY PARK EAST SAFARI

KENYA'S MOST EXCLUSIVE TENTED CAMPS FEATURED ON 13-DAY PARK EAST SAFARI
 NEW YORK, Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The most exclusive tented camps in Kenya -- the Mara and Samburu Intrepids Clubs -- and the chalets of Lewa Downs, a privately owned game ranch, are featured on the 13-day "Tented Safari" introduced by Park East Tours. The safari was rated first among tented safaris to Kenya for value for price by the D.H. Doelker, Inc., Safari Rating Report, which studies and ranks some 400 safaris offered by more than 40 operators.
 The "Tented Safari" spends three nights each at the Mara and Samburu clubs and two nights at Lewa Downs. The two Intrepids Clubs, new and luxurious, accommodate guests in tents furnished in the "grand safari" style of the past -- four-poster beds, for instance -- but equipped with modern conveniences such as private bathrooms. The tents are grouped in clusters in secluded settings.
 Mara Intrepids is set on the banks of the Talek River, near one of the main migration crossings in the Masai Mara reserve, the northern part of the game-rich Serengeti plains. Samburu Intrepids is on the Uaso Nyiro River in the Samburu Game Reserve, habitat of somewhat rare wildlife such as the reticulated giraffe, long-necked gerenuk, Grevy's zebra, Beisa oryx and Somali ostrich.
 Chalets are the accommodations at Lewa Downs, a 40,000-acre ranch owned by Emma and Willie Craig. Game ranges from elephant to the tiny dik-dik, a species of antelope only about 14 inches high at the shoulder. Most of the food is grown on the ranch, and dinner by candlelight is followed by coffee and liqueurs around the campfire.
 The "Tented Safari" spends a night and a day in Nairobi at the Norfolk Hotel, a landmark that opened in 1904 and is still a popular gathering place.
 The cost of the safari, $4,095 through Dec. 1, 1991, and $4,595 thereafter, through November 1992, covers round-trip flights from New York, transportation by air and land within Kenya, accommodations, all meals, game-viewing by private minibus, airport transfers, hotel and baggage tips.
