For time-pressed safari addicts, it’s entirely possible to whizz down to Africa for a long weekend break, adding a night or two on to a bank holiday to make an extraordinary escape from office life. Flying out of London in the early evening, it’s easy to be in the Masai Mara by mid-morning for a four-night, adrenalin-packed classic safari adventure.

Perfect for

Maximum adventure, minimum time off work.

If you have a longer time available, add on a few days to chill beside the Indian Ocean at Msambweni House.

MASAI MARA - 4 nights

Fly to Nairobi and upon touchdown catch a light aircraft flight over the Rift Valley to the Masai Mara. Don’t be surprised if the plane doesn’t land first time: quite often you may have to swoop once or twice to chase a few zebras off the airstrip! Take a game drive from the airstrip to camp, ticking off your first few animals before lunch. Enjoy four nights at Governors' Camp, spending the mornings and afternoons checking out the big game, and evenings counting the stars around the campfire. We aim to fit in as much fun as possible, so on your last day you’ll stay in the bush right up till the afternoon, when you’ll fly back to Nairobi for dinner. A meal at Carnivore means spears skewered with ostrich steaks, and crocodile meat served from swords. Then you’ll whizz back to the airport for your flight home.
