Ultimate Bush & Beach Safari

Designed to deliver a classic ‘beach and bush’ experience, this 8-day fly-in tour is ideal for honeymooners and romantic travelers looking for great value. And with family accommodation available at our chosen lodges, this tour will also suit families with children.

The itinerary begins with Kenya’s showpiece – the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Your accommodation is one of the Mara’s favorites – Emboo River Camp – and takes full advantage of its private concession setting to deliver excellent and exclusive game sightings as well as stunning views of the Mara plains. Home to rewarding game viewing all year round, this corner of the Masai Mara takes on a different aspect when the migrating wildebeest herds arrive from about mid-year. Emboo River Camp lies on the annual Migration path and treats its guests to some of the most dramatic sightings of the year as the wildebeest cross the crocodile-infested Mara River.

Then it is off to the Indian Ocean coast and Kenya’s beautiful Msambweni Beach. Your accommodation – Msambweni Beach House & Private Villas are located in a quiet, unique setting on a stretch of completely un spoilt beach surrounded by 28 acres of natural land. The property has 700 feet of private beach along a four mile stretch of the coastline, with palm trees offering peace and tranquility where guests can be at one with nature. There are no beach boys on this beach as there are no other hotels around. The main house has three double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms offering deep, sunken baths, walk-in showers and large private terraces. Master Rooms I and II have bedrooms with panoramic sea views, while Master Room III has a bush and sea view from the terrace. The bedrooms are all air-conditioned with mosquito nets. In the event that the whole main house is rented out to one group of guests, two extra rooms are at their disposal – the Makuti I and II. The rooms are situated under the roof and have a spacious lounge area.
