Blending the world’s most spectacular wildlife with the planet’s most perfect beaches, a trip to Kenya and Seychelles is twin-centre supreme. First, you’ll gaze across the Masai Mara plains, scouring the savanna for herds of elephant and playful lion cubs. Then, after a few days of exciting game drives, you’ll fly directly to Seychelles for a dreamy dose of tropical sunshine. What could possibly be better?
Kenya is the classic safari destination, bursting at the borders with breathtaking wildlife in a jaw-dropping setting. The golden grassland of the Masai Mara is perhaps the most famous wildlife hotspot in the world and every year the Great Migration thunders across its plains in the ultimate race for survival. A safari here really is second to none, especially when you mix a stay in the Masai Mara with a few games drives in Amboseli National Park, in the shadow of the impressive Mount Kilimanjaro, or explore the open, remote plains of Samburu in open game viewing vehicles.
Safaris are well known for their slightly unsociable hours. The early morning game drives set off before the scorching sun rises, as the animals are most active before the heat of the day takes hold. So, after a string of gripping dawn game drives, you’ll be ready to slow down the pace and lie back on soft white sands. The Seychelles does slow like nowhere else, so you’ve come to the right place!
Flying directly from Nairobi (every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday only), Seychelles is somewhere to forget about time, forget about your troubles and forget about shoes. It’s extreme barefoot escapism with a mind-blowing backdrop. The beaches of Seychelles, scattered across 115 tiny islands in the Indian Ocean, are ranked amongst the most stunning in the world. Blessed with pearly white sands, crystal clear waters, surreal pink boulders and leaning coconut palms, these islands will fulfil all of your Robinson Crusoe fantasies.
If you’ve got a few days on Seychelles, you can choose a base and take island-hopping day trips to the surrounding shores. If you’ve even luckier and you’ve got more than a week to spare, you can set off on an island-hopping adventure all of your own, spending a few nights on 2 or 3 islands. On each island, you’ll find friendly locals, warm sunshine, delicious local cuisines and sunsets that will leave you speechless.
Across Seychelles, the waters are superb for snorkelling and diving, while the wild island interiors hold natural treasures such as giant tortoises, mammoth coco de mer trees, insect-devouring plants and exceedingly rare birds. Wherever you choose to stay, you can’t go far wrong.
