Kenya, with its incredible wildlife and iconic landscapes, pairs beautifully with a stay on the sun-kissed shores of Zanzibar, where you can while away the hours snorkeling in clear waters and dozing in the shade of palm trees.

After spending a night in Nairobi, your vacation begins in what is one of Africa’s most legendary wilderness areas. The Masai Mara, bordered in the west by the Oloololo escarpment and in the east by the Ngama Hills, showcases a spectacular array of biodiversity, with lion, elephant, cheetah, giraffe and an abundance of colourful birds found here. It’s also the place to observe one of the most awe-inspiring wildlife spectacles on earth – the Great Wildebeest Migration.

After you’ll be taken by light aircraft to spend five nights in a chic, ocean-side resort on the northern coast of Zanzibar. Here you’ll have direct access to a private beach stretching for 300 meters and lapped by the shimmering waters of the Indian Ocean.

Today the adventure really begins. Another private transfer brings you to Wilson Airport where you will catch a scheduled light aircraft flight to the Mara, one of the world’s greatest destinations to watch big game. You will be met at the airstrip and transferred to your camp, wonderfully situated near the confluence of the Mara and Talek Rivers. It also sits on the route of the annual migration of over one million wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti – one of nature’s greatest spectacles.

Elephants, lion, rhino, Thomson’s gazelle, cheetah, wild dogs, giraffe, leopards and several species of primate all make a home for themselves in this vast and unfenced wilderness. Day and night game drives led by knowledgeable guides offer incredibly up-close encounters, whilst guided walks are perfect for experiencing the smaller aspects of the bush. Trips to nearby villages are a chance to immerse yourself in the local culture, whilst a hot-air balloon flight over the Mara’s endless plains is sure to take your breath away.

  • I do not think that we have ever had so much care and attention from a travel company, which just goes to show that (in a good way), you do get what you pay for.
