THE MARSH LIONS
by Brian Jackman with Jonathan and Angela Scott. Reissued by Bradt in
February 2012 (originally published in 1982), this is the classic
account of life in the Masai Mara. Thoroughly recommended.
We recommend the direct services of Kenya Airways
from London Heathrow. Current timings (subject to possible change) are
Heathrow/Nairobi. Depart at 20.00; arrive Nairobi at 06.30 (next morning)
Nairobi/Heathrow. Depart at 23.45; arrive Heathrow at 06.45 (next morning)
You can book the flights yourself on the easy-to-use Kenya Airways website. British Airways and Virgin Atlantic also offer daily flights to Nairobi, but due to their timings you may have to spend additional time in Nairobi. Alternatively World Discovery can book the flights for you (we levy a service charge of £25 per person for this service).
EXTEND YOUR STAY
At the end of a busy schedule of gameviewing on safari, why not spend a few days of relaxation at one of our selected beach resorts?
MOMBASA, THE SWAHILI COAST
Mombasa on the shores of the Indian Ocean offers you swaying palm trees and pristine white sand beaches - perfect for taking it easy or trying your hand at a variety of watersports. We recommend the exclusive Msambweni House (12 guests only).
Or perhaps the exotic island of Zanzibar?
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.
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.
