Big Cat Safari and White Sand Beaches

Summary Of The Route and Costs

It is all about the location on this 11 night itinerary. Your camp in the Masai Mara overlooks the Talek River and enjoys one of the most spectacular locations in the world's best-known wilderness. In Seychelles, your Mahe beach hotel is situated just a stone's throw from one of the most picturesque bays on the island, with sparkling turquoise waters framed by white sand and the granite boulders that are synonymous with the Seychelles archipelago.

Your first 3 nights are spent at the tented Mara Intrepids Camp, which is also just a short drive from the famous Mara River, where more than a million wildebeest and zebra make their perilous migration crossing every July and August. For the remainder of the year, the camp offers some of the world's finest game viewing, with large local populations of plains game, elephants, rhinos, buffalos, and all the Big Cats. Some 75% of the footage for the BBC's famous Big Cat Diary was shot in the vicinity of the camp.

Or why not take to the skies for a morning hot air balloon safari, and enjoy the spectacle of the Mara sunrise and the aerial view of the game scattered across the rolling plains.

After a night in Nairobi at a lovely boutique hotel, you will fly to Seychelles. Each chalet at Carana Beach boasts a view from every room spilling out onto the picturesque sandy beach and blue ocean beyond.

House of Waine was originally built in the 1970s as a private home.
