Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Nairobi.

  • On arrival in Nairobi you will be met and transferred to Wilson Aerodrome in time for your light aircraft flight up to Nanyuki. Here you will be met by your guide and driven back to your camp in time for lunch. You will have a chance to settle in before heading out on an afternoon game drive in the excellent Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Keep an eye out for reticulated giraffe, grevy's zebra and gerenuk antelope along with the rhino that the reserve is famous for.

  • Spend today on safari from the beautiful Kicheche Laikipia Camp where you can enjoy game drives as well as night drives and walks. All the tents overlook a large waterhole so excellent sightings are common even from the camp.

  • Today you will be transferred to the airstrip at Nanyuki in time for your light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara. On arrival you will be met and transferred to Kicheche Mara Camp for the next four nights, enjoying some fabulous game viewing en route. Once you have settled in and enjoyed some lunch there is a bit of time to relax before you go on a late afternoon game-drive, exploring this wildlife-rich area.

  • On safari in the Mara. You can enjoy morning and afternoon game drives from your camp as well as short walking safaris, night game drives and sundowners out in the bush. As the camp is situated in a private conservancy within the Mara the number of camps and vehicles here is strictly limited giving you by far the best safari experience away from the busier areas of the park.

  • The Masai Mara is big cat country so keep your eyes peeled for lion, cheetah and of course the very elusive leopard. You will be able to enjoy walks with local Maasai guides on the open plains.

  • Your final full day on safari from Kicheche Naboisho Camp, which you can spend exploring this beautiful reserve. The Masai Mara has some of the best populations of wildlife in Africa, so make the most of your time here.

  • This morning there should be time for one last game drive before you return to Nairobi by a light aircraft. On arrival in Nairobi you will be greeted at the domestic airport and transferred across to the international airport, stopping for a leisurely lunch at a restaurant en route (lunch is payable locally). You will then check in for your early evening flight on to Zanzibar. On arrival you will be met by a driver and private vehicle who will transfer you across the island to the beautiful palm-fringed east coast where you can relax after your safari and enjoy the activities on offer.

  • At leisure at Pongwe Beach Hotel - you can spend the day relaxing and unwinding here on the beautiful stretch of beach, or read a book under the shade of a palm tree by the pool. If you're feeling more active, you can easily arrange diving or snorkelling along with other excursions to explore the island through the reception.

  • One of my favourite things to do in Zanzibar is to visit one of the small-scale spice farms on the island - you get a really hands-on experience tasting and smelling the spices for which the island is famous.

  • Another area to explore on Zanzibar is the enchanting Jozani Forest where you can see the rare red Kirk's colobus monkeys. These monkeys are endemic to the island and are really entertaining to watch leap and play in the trees!

    More Accommodation options below
  • For something completely different to the beach, you could head into Stone Town one day for a day trip - the town is located on the west coast and is a busy and bustling town. You can hire a guide to help you explore the narrow alleyways and cobbled streets, learning about the town's fascinating past with a rich and dramatic history as a centre of colonial exploration and of the East African slave-trade. It's also a great opportunity to pick up any souvenirs.
