DETAILED ITINERARY

This adventure starts and ends at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Kenya

Day 1

You will be met on arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport by a member of the &Beyond team and assisted with a scheduled road transfer to Southern Sun Mayfair Nairobi.

Kenya’s capital is one of the largest and most influential cities in Africa, an important commercial and financial regional hub. It is the port of entry for most travellers to Kenya and offers bustling markets, interesting history and numerous attractions. Named after a Maasai watering hole, “enkare nyarobi”, which means “place of cool waters”, Nairobi is known for its leafy streets and parks. The skyline, with towering skyscrapers and imposing architecture also draws the attention of every arrival to the city. Not-to-be-missed is a visit to the city’s beautiful Uhuru Park.

Spend one night at the Southern Sun Mayfair Nairobi in a standard room. Your stay includes accommodation and breakfast.

Day 2

After breakfast, you will be collected from the Southern Sun Mayfair Nairobi and transferred to Wilson Airport for your scheduled SafariLink flight to Kichwa Airstrip for &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp.

Blessed with an astounding year-round concentration of animals and the climax of the Great Migration, Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve provides an unsurpassed wildlife experience. Covering an area of 1 510 km2, the Masai Mara is a land of breathtaking vistas, abundant wildlife, and endless plains. The Reserve is a photographer’s and naturalist’s paradise with abundant elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lion and cheetah alongside the migratory wildebeest and zebra. Leopards are frequently encountered, endangered black rhino find retreat in dense thickets, and large rafts of hippo and enormous crocodiles are found in the Mara River. The Mara is also home to over 450 bird species. Situated in the &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Private Concession, which neighbours the Masai Mara &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp offers world-class accommodation in the African bush. Meaning “head of the elephant” in Kiswahili, Kichwa Tembo is located on private land leased from Maasai landlords in the remote western Mara. In addition to the excellent concentration of animals, Kichwa Tembo lies directly in the path of Africa’s spectacular Great Migration.

Spend three nights at &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp in an ensuite tent. Your stay includes meals, tea and coffee, scheduled activities, Kichwa Airstrip transfers and emergency medical evacuation insurance.

Day 5

 After breakfast you will be transferred to the airstrip for your scheduled Mombasa Air flight to Diani (Ukunda Airstrip). On arrival at Ukunda Airstrip you will be met and transferred to Tijara Beach Villas.

Protected by an offshore barrier coral reef, Kenya’s south coast is famous for beautiful and safe beaches, as well as spectacular diving, fishing and surfing. Shimoni is Kenya’s southern angling headquarters, with boats heading out into the Pemba Channel in search of the denizens of the deep. Offshore are another two magnificent marine reserves, Kisite Marine National Park and Mpunguti Marine National Reserve, both offering superb diving? A bit further south is Wasini Island and the Wasini Marine National Park, with arguably the best snorkelling in Africa. Inland is the little-known Shimba Hills National Reserve, a 192 km² (75 square mile), heavily forested plateau that is home to, among others, elephant, sable antelope, leopard, buffalo and hyena.

Spend four nights at Tijara Beach Villas in a cottage.  Your stay includes meals, soft drinks, beer, house wine & non-luxury spirits, snorkelling, reef, beach and cave walks, croquet, bird watching and tree planting.

Day 9

After breakfast depart for the drive to Ukunda Airstrip for your flight to Nairobi.  On arrival at Wilson Airport a member of the &Beyond team will meet you and transfer you to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your outbound flight.
