The Journey We Planned

Day 1: Masai mara safari and Zanzibar beach holiday

It’s the first day of your amazing East African Safari! 

You will get your first taste of Kenyan hospitality from our representative, who will meet you at you at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to transfer you to your Nairobi hotel for your First night.

Overnight at The Norfolk Hotel on Bed and Breakfast basis

Day 2: Masai mara safari and Zanzibar beach holiday

Early morning pickup (07.00hrs) from Nairobi Hotel and transfer to Wilson Airport for your flight to the Masai Mara National Reserve.  There are two flights per day, depending on your arrival time you can either go on the morning or afternoon flight. We recommend that you take the morning flight, if possible, to maximize your time in the Mara.  Check-in is one hour before departure and the flying time is around 45min from Nairobi Wilson airport.  

On arrival at the Masai Mara airstrip you will be met by your guide who will transfer you to the camp, your home for the next two exciting days!  Have your camera handy as you drive to the Camp – this short drive will give you your first taste of game viewing in The Mara.  After a delicious lunch at the camp, you will have some time to explore your environment and settle in before setting off on your first afternoon game drive.  Your accommodation is in the true East African Safari style in spacious under-canvas rooms with all the luxury touches you need to complete your safari experience.

 You will generally be back in camp in time for sundowners before enjoying a wonderful dinner.  After dinner, you can swap game-viewing stories with your fellow guests around the campfire or in the bar before falling asleep to the hypnotic sounds of the African wilderness.

 Dinner and overnight at &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Mara camp

Day 3 and 4: Masai Mara Game Reserve

On your second day enjoy the amazing views, Sunrises and Sunsets in the Mara Plains. Game viewing drives throughout the day.

On third day we have planned a Balloon safari in Masai mara. We suggest you request an early wake-up call so that you will not miss the first stirrings of animal movements, as you set off on your early morning game drive just as the first rays of sunlight peep over the horizon and the bush comes to life.

You will return to the lodge for breakfast. Depart for more drives until lunch time, thereafter, relax and feel free to enjoy the camp facilities until it is time for your afternoon game drive.

 Dinner and overnight at &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Mara camp

Day 5: Masai Mara – Nairobi - Zanzibar

Although your Mara adventure is ending there is still time for a final early morning game drive, 

Later this morning your guide will drive you back to the Mara airstrip for your flight back to Nairobi.  On arrival at Wilson Airport, you will connect to your flight departing for Zanzibar in the afternoon.

Pick up from the airport in Zanzibar and you will stay at the Zanzibar Serena Hotel in Stone town for your first night.

Day 6: Stone town tour and the spice farms

Next morning take a lazy breakfast and slow down to the tempo of Zanzibar. Everything is ‘pole pole’ meaning slow.

This day visit the famous spice farms and stone town. The Tour will begin with stone town and head onwards to the spice farms.

By far the best way to see all the historical buildings and sites around the old Stone Town! Walk through the narrow streets and capture the feeling of the old colonial Arabic Architecture which is now a UNESCO Historical Site. Included are all entrance fees into sites and museums.

Zanzibar, also known as the ‘Island of Spices’, evokes a romantic past embalmed in the aroma of cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, and lemon grass. The perfect chance to learn everything you have ever wanted to know about spices! Our guide will take you to spice farms and plantations all over the island where you can see and taste the variety of spices found in Zanzibar. Plus, it’s a great way to see the island!

You will then be transferred to Nungwi’ beach north of Zanzibar, check in at Gold Zanzibar on Half board basis.

Day 7: Zanzibar - Sea safari

If you are feeling up to it, after morning breakfast go on an adventurous sea safari, full day inclusive of lunch. See the dolphins and snorkel in the amazing marine conservations. Sail, snorkel, swim, sunbathe, explore, feast, observe.

Returning to the hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 8 and 9: Zanzibar

Relax and soak in the sun.

Day 10: Zanzibar to Nairobi

Transfer from your hotel to the airport. Fly from Zanzibar to Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta airport, connect to your flight home.
