The African Safari

“When my brother and I were 14 and 16, respectively, my dad took us on a legit safari mission in South Africa. We clattered through rivers in old battered Humvees driven by a pair of ex-military guides who described anything great as “100 percent,” watched the sun set over the bush while troops of baboons passed by, and grilled steaks the size of encyclopedias outside a lodge with more taxidermy than you can shake an N.R.A. card at. I will never forget that stuff.”


Your Marching Orders …

You’re not going on safari to pinch pennies or cut corners. This is a bucket-list experience — treat it as such by entrusting yourself to Angama Mara, a posh, intimate tented camp in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley overlooking the hallowed Maasai Mara game reserve. Will the flight in (to a private airfield) be one of the most scenic of your life? Yes. Will you see Africa’s Big-Five on daily game drives? In droves. Will you drink sundowners on a private patio while 570 species of bird fly by? No doubt. Then you’ll get some rest, wake up and do it all again.

Your Timekeeper …

Carrera Calibre 7 Twin Time by TAG Heuer

With the African sun beating down and wild animals roaming all around, even the sanest of gents can get lost. So wipe that sweat off your brow and affix the Carrera Twin Time to your wrist. Sporting three standard hands as well as a red GMT tracker on a sunray dial, you’ll keep the group on schedule — or know when to call home.
