TAILOR MADE OPTIONS

The sample safari and beach tour shown above is our most popular Kenya holiday but it is exactly that - a sample tour.  We can change it to suit your precise requirements in may ways - by amending or ugrading the accommodation, by taking out or putting in additional sightseeing, by changing the number of nights in each place, by booking special meals, activities or cultural visits.  We are happy to advise and help you create your ideal holiday.

Kenya Holidays - Msambweni House, Mombasa

ALTERNATIVE KENYA BEACH OPTIONS

We have selected the Pinewood Beach Resort & Spa on Diani Beach for this sample itinerary but there are many other options.  You might prefer, for example, to choose a smaller, more boutique-style hotel like the exclusive Msambweni House in Mombasa (pictured).  PLease ask us for our recommendations.

Or perhaps, as an alternative to the Kenya coast, you might want to consider  the exotic island of Zanzibar?

 Zanzibar Holidays - Zanzibar Serena Hotel 

ZANZIBAR SERENA HOTEL

Located in historic Stone Town, the Zanzibar Serena Hotel, a member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World, is a haven of tranquillity and opulence.

 

 Zanzibar Holidays - Breezes

 

BREEZES BEACH CLUB & SPA

For sheer indulgence beside the pristine white sand beaches of Zanzibar's east coast, the excellent Breezes is the perfect choice.

 

 

EXTEND YOUR STAY

Popular extensions to the 'Mara Safari and Beach' tour include the following:

Kenya Holidays - Amboseli National ParkAMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK

If you want to increase the number of days on safari you can add in a 2 night stay at the Amboseli Porini Camp in Selankay Conservancy.  This exclusive camp of just 9 tents is located beneath the snow-peak of Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, and offers superb game-viewing; Amboseli is particularly well-known for its elephants.
