Safari in Kenya at the time of the Great Migration and white sand beach in Zanzibar

July to September 2021

14 days / 13 nights – from £ 4,390 per person

Active holiday and beach retreat

Immerse yourself in two spaces among the most magical of Eastern Africa: the Maasai Mara National Reserve, at the period of the great migration of the wildebeests, and the Island of Zanzibar with its sandy beaches and turquoise sea.

The highlights of this safari are the following:

– live at the rhythm of the African savannah and its large expanses, immersed in one of the most remarkable ecosystems of Kenya at the period when it has the highest density of animals and it offers the spectacle of the migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeests crossing the Mara river

– soak up the unspoiled and peaceful tropical setting of one of the most beautiful beaches on the Island of Zanzibar, which will allow you to relax under the palm trees while enjoying a gentle sea breeze

– enjoy comfortable accommodation in a seasonal and eco friendly bush camp in the centre of the Maasai Mara National Reserve, allowing you to be at the heart of the show, and in a small lodge with cosy individual bungalows in a privileged area on the Island of Zanzibar

– choose your ideal departure and return dates without worrying about the constitution of a group, as this safari is available for individual travellers, couples and families

– appreciate the opportunity to tailor the program to your wishes

An exceptional journey of discovery of the beauties of East Africa as a couple, a family or a group of friends!
