Named after the wild horses that once roamed the area, Cavallo Point Lodge is a luxury property with stunning views of San Francisco’s majestic Golden Gate Bridge. It’s located in the Fort Baker area in one of the world’s largest urban parks, formerly an army post directly north of the bridge that’s now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The lodge is in an ideal location for anyone looking to visit San Francisco, discover this vibrant city’s many attractions and learn about its long, fascinating history.

For accommodation, there’s a superb choice of traditional or contemporary rooms and suites. The handsomely furnished historic suites, which have been lovingly preserved and restored over the years, are dotted across several different buildings which once functioned as residences for army officers. Perched on the hillside amid lovely, green surroundings, many of these rooms/suites offer views of the renowned bridge and city skyline. Alternatively, contemporary rooms and suites are offered in buildings designed with all the latest environmentally-friendly principles in mind. Despite their very sleek, modern feel, these rooms have been cleverly designed to blend right in with the lodge’s historical feel.

There are plenty of on-site amenities to make use of. The Murray Circle Restaurant specialises in Northern Californian cuisine and is open daily for three meals; in fact, it’s well known as one of the top fine dining restaurants in the Bay Area. There’s also Farley Bar which serves lighter meals and an assortment of classy drinks. Those after some cookery tips can take part in lessons offered by the lodge’s very own, well-equipped cooking school which offers a varied line-up of classes and programs for people of all experience levels. There’s also the Healing Arts Center & Spa, which offers not only a good selection of spa treatments, but also enrichment workshops, a well-stocked tea bar and relaxed hikes.

Children are welcome and the lodge’s parade ground lawn is a great place for families to enjoy some laid-back time together, plus there’s loads to do in the wider locality. The waterfront area and nearby Muir Forest are well worth exploring, as is the Bay Area Discovery Museum, which has been recognised as a top museum for children. There’s also Slide Ranch, which is home to friendly farm animals, and the Exploratorium, a fascinating collection of exhibits and displays. Both the lodge and the Fort Baker area have a very family friendly atmosphere. Visits to San Francisco proper are also very popular, and transportation to and from the city can be arranged.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
