Iconic Kenya Safari and Coast Combination

13 nights, from £3397 per person (including flights)

Nairobi  – Mara North  – Diani Beach

Our specialists say.....

Discover the heart of Africa with Masai warriors and enjoy barefoot luxury on the sandy Indian Ocean shores

This is a Kenyan safari and beach combination with a touch of extravagance.

Enjoy the iconic Masai Mara, Kenya’s most famed National Park with 4 nights at Saruni Mara. The BBC said this was the best real estate in wildlife there can ever be! Explore this diverse wilderness by heading out on game drives and walking safaris, complete with romantic breakfasts and sundowners out in the bush. It doesn't get any more 'Out of Africa' than this.

Then head to Diani, one of the world’s best beaches over on the Kenyan coast. You'll be spending 8 lavish nights relaxing at the Almanara Boutique Hotel in a uniquely decorated room. This is where you will press pause, relax and take in the safari adventures you've just experienced.

Your safari begins!

Today you'll arrive in Nairobi where you'll be greeted by a Far & Wild representative who will transfer you to the Ole Sereni Hotel.

Enjoy a buffet breakfast out on the balcony at Ole Sereni overlooking Nairobi National Park. Then it's back to Nairobi Wilson airport for your flight to the Masai Mara.

This is where your safari really begins, with a scenic flight taking you over stunning landscapes on your way to the lodge.

On arrival, you'll be met by a Saruni representative who will transfer you to the lodge, wildlife viewing as you go. Your next 4 nights will be spent staying at Saruni Mara lodge in their Love Shack with all meals, local drinks and scheduled safari activities included.

Saruni Camp is in a private wildlife concession, making it the perfect place to enjoy uninterrupted peace in style and comfort.

Days 3 - 5: Mara Safari

Saruni  Mara Lions On A Game Drive

Saruni Mara Game Drives

The next few days will be spent enjoying twice daily game drives with Masai warriors who will share their knowledge of the wildlife and secret corners of one of the most celebrated reserves in Kenya. You also have the opportunity to go on night game drives to try and find elusive nocturnal creatures.

Walking safaris are also on offer for those who want to be totally immersed in nature - there's nothing quite like seeing the wildlife close up.

If you are interested in seeing the wildlife from above, why not try a hot air balloon flight over the African plains for an additional cost.

Afternoons can be spent relaxing at the wellbeing spa, where guests can enjoy a complimentary massage.

Further afield a trip to see the protected Colobus Monkeys is a must, whilst a tour of an ancient “Kaya” forest will help you learn the origins of the coastal tribes. Meanwhile the Wasini Island trip aboard Pili Pippa’s famous Dhow is a fantastic way to visit the Kisite National Marine Park where you can snorkel and swim with the dolphins, before heading to the island for a seafood lunch.
