Every guest is different and every guest is special. We had honeymooners and we usually put fruits covered in chocolate and a bottle of wine in their tent at arrival. But this time I was looking for something different who could give the whole set up a magic and different touch, so I thought of doing bottle […]

The first Eclastic team!

Many Maasai are working at Little Mara Bush Camp. We invited their wives to learn how to recycle plastic bottles.

Purple or not purple?

I remember once, long time ago in Sicily, I was working at a Horse Racecourse. I was very good, never made a mistake and everybody loved me. The winner used to bring me gifts, chocolates, hats or just a nice tip. Then it happened. The incriminated day I decided to wear a purple/lilac shirt. If […]
