Karen Blixen Camp

Masai Mara

Days 1 - 3: Masai Mara

Karen Blixen Camp Location Map

Karen Blixen Camp is situated in the pristine Mara North Conservancy, which borders the Masai Mara Game Reserve. This eco-friendly luxury camp gives a sense of the exciting explorer days, when the savannah was seldom visited and elaborate and comfortable camps were set up providing a luxurious and stylish retreat after each day’s adventure.

Daily morning and afternoon/night game drives are enjoyed within the Mara North Conservancy for the utmost exclusive and private safari experience with low impact tourism controlled vehicle density. On request and during the Great Migration, you also have the opportunity for a full day game drive in the Masai Mara National Reserve.

Game walking can also be arranged for those who wish to experience the magnitude of the Mara savannah on foot. Shorter nature walks are kept within the camp and focus entirely on the rich birdlife and little insects inhabiting the area and how the Masai make use of the indigenous plants for medical and ritual purposes.

Karen Blixen Camp comprises 22 large luxury canvas tents each placed with undisturbed view along the Mara River.

The open plan ‘mess’ area, built on a raised wooden deck, is located on the banks of the Mara River overlooking a resident hippo pod. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners are served in the restaurant or bush garden from where one has an incredible close view of the Mara River and the wild animals coming to drink. For guests wanting to venture a little further, romantic bush dinners can be arranged underneath the starlit African night.

The swimming pool has sunbeds and umbrellas for shade from the African sun. A wide range of wellness treatments and therapeutic body massages are also offered by trained therapists (additional cost).

AfroChic Diani Beach

The Kenyan Coast

Days 4 - 10: The Kenyan Coast

AfroChic Diani Beach Location Map

Kenya may well be one of the safari capitals of the world, but everyone also needs time to relax and recharge either as soon as they step off the plane in Nairobi, or after time on safari in search of Africa's big game over the dusty savannas. And what better way to do this than on one of Kenya's many beautiful white sandy beaches, which are fringed by swaying palm trees one one side, and the warm Indian Ocean on the other.

The shoreline is lined with coral reefs, making Kenya also a superb destination for watersport and diving enthusiasts alike. The offshore reefs are alive with colourful fish, sea turtles and dolphins. Big game fishing is also a popular sport and past-time.

Windsurfing, water ski-ing, kite-surfing, kayaking and snorkelling can all be enjoyed in the clear waters. Romantic sunset dhow trips are synonymous with the Kenya coast, the dhows having being built and sailed here for over 500 years.

Afrochic is situated alongside the powdery-white sands and turquoise waters of Diani beach, regarded as the best stretch of beach along the Kenyan Coast. It is the perfect getaway for the discerning traveller who wishes to simply flop, drop and enjoy the spectacular views of ancient dhows in full sail.

For those wanting a more active way to spend the day, enjoy a number of thrilling activities from kite and wind-surfing, to scuba-diving in the coral reefs, and camel-riding along the shoreline (additional cost).  There is also an 18 hole championship golf course within a 3 minute drive from the hotel, and other nearby attractions such as local boutiques and craft markets. 

After such exciting activities, indulge yourself with a treatment at the in-house AfroChic spa, take a relaxing walk around the beautiful furnished landscaped gardens, or relax by the free form crystal clear swimming pool.

This exclusively intimate hotel - with only 10 guest rooms each with their own en-suite bathroom, balcony and sun-loungers - is singularly personable and highly individual. The unique and eclectic style of interiors and designs makes a refreshing change.

Guests may choose to dine whenever and wherever they wish - in the dining room, on the veranda, in the garden, by the pool, on the beach or in the privacy of their own bedroom balcony.

From the moment you walk through the doors to the moment you depart, you will understand what has made AfroChic the 'sought-after' destination for those seeking rest, relaxation and the personal touch.
