Begin your safari and beach adventure in the sands of Seychelles. Your own private island paradise awaits at Denis Island. Fill your days with nothing but the pleasures of the island, be it snorkeling and diving in the pure waters, partaking in reforestation and conservation projects, or simply lazing on the beach.
Continue next to Mahé, Seychelles’ largest island, and bathe in the sublime opulence of the MAIA Luxury Resort & Spa. Embark on a day trip to nearby islands to snorkel and dive, plus catch a glimpse of turtles and rare birds on the shore. At the resort, you are attended by your own private butler and enchanted by a stunning 180-degree view of the Indian Ocean from your villa.
The beach half of your safari and beach journey ends here. After a flight to Kenya and a night neighboring the resident giraffes at Giraffe Manor, begin the safari half in Shaba National Park. Sasaab is hidden away on a rocky ridge above the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, in prime position for adventure. Explore the bush with Sasaab Masai guides who will escort you by camel or safari vehicle through the open terrain.
Conclude your safari in the famed Masai Mara National Reserve, one of Africa’s premiere sites for big game and birdlife. Situated within the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, Mara Plains Camp is a luxurious Kenyan escape that offers amazing game viewing opportunities and uncompromising service. Spend the last few days of your adventure enjoying game drives, bush walks, sundowners, and activities in the beautiful Masai Mara, experiencing the plains on your own custom safari.
