Kenya Bush and Beach

Kenya Bush and Beach Safari

11 Days in the Maasai Mara
and at Diani Beach

Combine the best of exciting wildlife and safari activities with the relaxation of Kenya's Swahili Coast on this itinerary that's perfect for couples and families alike.

Starting in Nairobi, you'll get the chance to hand-feed endangered Rothschild Giraffes and witness the antics of baby elephants at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Visit the Karen Blixen Museum for lunch or consider a stop at the Kazuri Bead Center, a women-owned ceramic bead cooperative that provides income to single mothers.

The Maasai Mara is Kenya's crown jewel wildlife reserve with huge lion prides, an abundance of plains game like eland and impala and the massive Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra that pass right through the heart of the wilderness area. Based from Emboo River, the leading eco-camp in Kenya, you'll enjoy game drives in the first electric safari vehicle in the Mara led by exceptional guides. The camp's commitment to sustainability and keeping a low ecological footprint is setting the standard for other safari camps in Kenya.

After time in the bush, head for the sand, sun and surf of Diani Beach. Relax with a book in a hammock overlooking the turquoise waters, spend a morning snorkelling the nearby reef or cool off in the pool. This is a great place to pick up some wonderful African-print kitenge fabrics sold by the locals. 

For the more luxury-oriented, ask about an upgrade to Cottar's 1920's camp in the Mara set in it's own private and secluded reserve. Alfajiri Villas on the coast is ideal for larger families or groups looking for exclusivity and Hemingway's is widely considered the top place to stay in Nairobi thanks to its top-notch staff, well-appointed decor and unparalleled hospitality.
