As polo becomes the latest discipline hit by foot and mouth disease, polo enthusiasts have the opportunity to get away from it all while still enjoying their sport.

The Safari Spa, situated in Tanzania, East Africa, offers polo holidays that combine pampering at a luxury Spa with a polo club, horse back safaris in Africa’s unspoiled game parks, and playing polo in the bush on the shores of Lake Manyara.

The Safari Spa enjoys views of both Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru. As well as a swimming pool there is a gym, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room. Guests at the Safari Spa are served fresh, home made food during their stay.
