There are some combinations that are classics because they work: gin and tonic, Lennon and McCartney, clotted cream and strawberry jam. To this, we’d add East Africa’s very own classic combination: the Masai Mara and Zanzibar. Spend four days in the Masai Mara enjoying some of the best game viewing on Earth, and follow with six days snoozing under a coconut palm on Zanzibar.

Perfect for

Starting off an Africa addiction.

In the know

For some serious luxury, upgrade your accommodation to the gorgeous Mara Plains on safari, and Baraza on Zanzibar.

MASAI MARA - 4 nights

Fly in to Nairobi, and head across town to the local airport for your light aircraft flight down to the Masai Mara. Spend four nights at Kicheche Mara Camp exploring in a 4 x 4 game viewing vehicle. Watch cheetah hunting on the plains, lion prides snoozing in the sunshine, and hippos wallowing in the rivers. Be sure to pay a visit to the local village, and if you want to treat yourselves, book an early morning hot air balloon flight over the bush .On your last day, fly back to Nairobi for lunch (the Talisman and the Rusty Nail are tried and tested favourites, but there are numerous excellent options), before heading on to the airport for your flight to Zanzibar.

Kicheche Mara Camp

ZANZIBAR - 6 nights

Spend six nights at charming little Unguja. We’d quite happily pass the entire time with a good book watching the dhows float back and forth, but there’s plenty to keep more active types entertained. Head in to Stone Town to test your bartering skills in the market, dive and snorkel in the offshore marine park or spend a morning wandering around a spice plantation.

At the end of your stay spend the morning on the beach, before flying back to Nairobi, and from there on to your homeward flight.
